IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING PART TIME STUDENT EMPLOYMENT
All employers (both on-campus and off) are required to complete the U.S. Government “Form I-9” before adding new employees to payroll. Successful completion of this form requires certain forms of identification. Please visit this link to understand what forms of identification must be presented to your employer: http://www.salisbury.edu/hr/Forms/I-9-Paper-Version-SU.pdf If you do not have your I-9 Identification, the employer is not allowed to hire you / place you on payroll.
Professional networking is one of the most important skills you need to develop. Canvassing the campus and visiting departments to inquire about student employment opportunities is a great way to develop those skills. For example, if you are certified as a lifeguard and want to work as a lifeguard at the MAGGS Pool, stop by the pool when it is open and ask if the Aquatics Director if they are hiring.
The following departments typically hire students. They may or may not have jobs available, but you should check with them if you are interested:
|Dining Services||Commons Building (CB), Room firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Catering||Commons Building (CB), Room email@example.com|
|Information Desk||Guerrieri Student Union (GSU), Room firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Post Office||Commons Building (CB) – ground floor near the bookstore||410 email@example.com|
|Campus Recreation||Maggs PAC, Room 146||410-543-6350||wdgorrow@ salisbury.edu|
|Housing and Residential Life||122 Sea Gull Square (SG)||firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Patricia R. Guerrieri Academic Commons First Flooremail@example.com|
Some departments might ask for a resume. We provide a sample below. You should also have your course schedule available when you apply so you can provide the hours you are able to work. There may be openings but the open shifts might not work with your class schedule, so having this information readily available can save you time.
Students need to bring the documentation required for the successful completion of Form I-9. Click here to view the Human Resources Office student website. In the past, new students have not been able to get on to the University’s payroll quickly and easily because the students did not bring the proper I9 documentation with them to campus. This caused headaches and delays. If your son or daughter is seeking employment when they arrive here in late August, then they must have certain documents with them when they move to campus” and HR will provide the list of acceptable documents.

Need-based on-campus jobs are all distributed by the Financial Aid Office and are based on the federal FAFSA form which determines need. This section does not explain on-campus student employment under the Federal Work-Study program. For more information on that program, please visit the Financial Aid website at: http://www.salisbury.edu/admissions/finaid/typesofaid/federal-work-study.html
Non-need based on-campus jobs do not require a FAFSA form and there is no affiliation with the financial aid office. Any active SU student can apply for a non-need based on-campus job. Most of the on-campus jobs posted are non-need based.
