Resources for Student Employers


The Career Planning and Resource Center is dedicated to developing and preparing students in order to ensure academic discovery and career success. Employers are a significant part of empowering and teaching students. It is our hope that employers will provide student employees with support, open and effective communication, an appreciation of positive contributions, respect and constant feedback that fosters growth. In order to do that, students must first be successfully hired and trained. The on-campus hiring process includes the following steps:

  1. Review Applications
  2. Interviews
  3. Offer position to candidate
  4. Criminal background check
  5. Hiring paperwork
  6. Train student employee

Resources are available to ensure this process is properly completed. Each department has a Human Resources (HR) representative that can assist in the hiring process.
