Student Employees

Willamette supports student employment, recognizing the benefits to both the students and the university. Students gain valuable work experience through on-campus employment and Willamette departments benefit from the skills and perspectives of the student employees. We consider our student employees to be valuable members of our University workforce.

Where are student jobs posted?

Employment opportunities will be posted on the Career Services Handshake website. You may refer to that website or inquire about available positions in the individual department or area in which you are interested.

For information on the job search process and how that works with Federal Work-Study, refer to the Work-Study FAQ on the Career Services website.

I have been offered a job on campus. What do I do next?

Once you have officially been hired, you will receive an email with login credentials from Workday, our Human Resource Information System. You will be automatically assigned your new hire documentation in your Workday Inbox and may complete it at any time. Check out the Training Resources for Workday website for support.

Please visit us at the Office of Human Resources on or before your first day of work to provide supporting I-9 and work eligibility documents. (Note: You will have completed the first part of this process, filling out the I-9 form, in the Workday system). If you are unable to visit the HR office, please contact us to make alternate arrangements. 

If you are not able to present any of the eligible documents you are not permitted to work. If your documents are at home, you can have your parents or guardian mail your documents to campus using a secure service with tracking capabilities.

Employment Policies and Safety Guidelines

When you are hired, you will be expected to read and abide by Willamette's employment policies and safety guidelines, which are located on the Human Resources website.
