Welcome to the SEO

The Bates College Student Employment Office provides students with opportunities to enrich their growth by acquiring part-time positions on or off campus. Many jobs teach students the basics of working in an office environment which includes being able to: organize books, packages and files, coordinate meetings and events and learn different computer programs. Students gain skills that they can take with them after Bates and into another professional setting.

How Do I Find a Job?

Students are encouraged to frequently look at the list of positions by logging in to their account on Handshake. Handshake gets updated when there are new job opportunities. We invite you to check out the Student Employment Facebook page (which is maintained by a Bates student employee) for tips and leads on campus employment.

Students should also join the SEO On-Call list which notifies those on the on-call list via email when new opportunities, including off campus opportunities, become available.
