About Student Employment

Student employment is the #1 activity that students share or have in common.

Working part-time while taking classes enables a student to gain valuable transferrable skills that are invaluable to an entry-level job seeker. Transferrable skills are skills acquired during any activity—employment, school, projects, hobbies, sports, etc.—that are transferrable to the next level of one’s career.

Examples of transferrable skills include:

  • Communication (speaking effectively, listening attentively, negotiating, perceiving nonverbal messages)
  • Human Relations (developing rapport, being sensitive, listening, cooperating, representing others)
  • Organization (teaching, coaching, counseling, promoting change, managing conflict, initiating new ideas)

The Student Employment Program assists in making the employment search straightforward for IUP students by providing a listing of both on- and off-campus employment opportunities. We work closely with departmental offices as well as off-campus employers in order to provide current employment opportunities. Therefore, we post and remove jobs promptly from the website in an effort to keep the listings current and efficient.
