FAQ for Employers

For general information about Student Employment and its website, please refer to the Q & A below.

How do I post an available position?

You will need to login to Handshake and post the position.  If you do not yet have a Handshake Account, please contact Shirley Govindasamy, Director of Payroll.

I need to hire a student.  What form do I need to submit?  Where do I find it?

You will need to submit a Hiring form found under “Employer Forms” on the main menu bar.  Once you have hired a student, it is your responsibility to monitor the number of hours a student has worked.

Why do hiring forms need to be resubmitted every year?

All positions require supervisors to put an end date on the hiring from (the last day of the pay period during the academic school year) because:

  • Summer rates change. There are new hiring forms submitted for students who work during the summer.
  • Work study status changes from year to year.
  • If supervisors never put an end date on the hiring form, jobs would still be active. Students would have a list of all the jobs that they have once worked, even if they are not in the job anymore.
