Are you interested in making some extra pocket change and contributing to Hillsdale behind the scenes? Working on campus is a great way to build your resume and become more involved as a student. Our campus offers a wide variety of employment opportunities based on your interests and experience. The information below will help you navigate the job search process. Don’t hesitate to contact Career Services with any questions.
Handshake, the new campus platform for student employment, houses postings for available jobs on campus. Students can search and apply for jobs directly through the platform. Below is some information from Human Resources about student employment, some tips from Career Services about applying for jobs, and step-by-step instructions for job searching and application within Handshake.
The process after you apply will vary based on the employer, who determines whether he will conduct interviews, whether he will take time to notify applicants once someone has been hired, etc. Questions regarding the position should be directed to the employer.
Regarding in-person follow-up, it is appropriate to wait 5 business days after you apply to contact the department and ask about the status of your application. This is also a good time to confirm your interest in the position in a personal way (in person or by phone).
If you accept a position and have submitted other applications, it is courteous to communicate directly with each supervisor and let them know you no longer wish to be considered for their position. This can save them a great deal of time giving attention to your application (which is emailed directly to them when you apply, and which you cannot simply withdraw in Handshake).
