Resources for Faculty and Staff

Whether you need to hire a student worker, research careers for your grads and undergrads, or find a meeting space, the Career Center can help.

ER System

The Employee Request (ER) System is the primary site for hiring students for work-study and non-work-study positions. Check out Accessing the Employee Request System for guidance on navigating the interface and creating Employee Requests.

Work-Study Program

The purpose of the Work-Study Program is to stimulate and promote part-time employment of registered students who are eligible for financial aid and are awarded a work-study allocation. The program provides a variety of on and off-campus positions, and the goal is to provide job experience in areas closely related to the student's career or educational goals. The Federal government or other funding sources supply a portion of work-study student salaries, and the hiring unit pays the remaining balance. For more information on the Work-Study Program, please check out our Policies and Procedures page.
