On-Campus Jobs

Career Connection's comprehensive software gives students the opportunity to effectively search full and part-time employment, Career Connectionsinternships, on-campus jobs and on-campus interviews, job fairs, and more. Click here to enter Career Connections and view the on-campus jobs. Instructions concerning how to search on-campus jobs are below.

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:   If you do not have your I-9 Identification, the employer is not allowed to hire you / place you on payroll.

To Search On-Campus Jobs:

  1. We have a web-based system/database called "Career Connections" where you can easily view the on-campus jobs available at SU.
  2. You login to Career Connections by clicking here-Your username is the verbiage prior to the @ sign in your school email.  After entering your username, click on the "Forgot Password" to have your randomly assigned password sent to you via your school email.
  3. After you have logged in, go to the blue menu bar at the top of the page and click on "Jobs and Interview Schedules." 
  4. You will then arrive at a page that has a "Position Types" drop-down selection.  Select the "On-Campus Jobs" option from that drop-down.
  5. Then click on the "Search" button.  You will see all of the on-campus jobs that are available.

Find On-Campus Job Opportunities by Networking

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 101 410-543-6105
Catering Commons Building (CB), Room 208 410-543-6105

Information you Should Have Available Prior to Interviewing for an On-Campus Job:

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 vs. Non-Need Based On-Campus Jobs:

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:

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.
