If you're interested in working while while you're going to college, search for a job on campus. Career Services advertises all student worker job openings on the CIU JobBoard, our online job database, and on two bulletin boards; one in the Student Center and one located near the Career Services Office in the Administration Building.
Most positions become available at the beginning of the school year and are usually advertised starting in mid-August. Positions are occasionally posted during the semester and before spring semester.
Our Student Employment Program provides valuable experience to students both inside and outside of their field of study.
Most student worker positions are Federal Work Study (FWS) approved, but the few exceptions will be identified as non-eligible FWS jobs. Both FWS-approved students and those who are not can apply for any advertised student worker job opening.
The exception is community service jobs that are only for FWS-approved students and will be posted as such. To determine if you qualify for FWS, contact the Financial Aid Office.
For complete instructions for Student Employment, to download the application to apply for an on-campus job, and to access the link to the CIU JobBoard, go to my.ciu.edu and then to Career Services and then to the For Students page.
To be considered for a student worker job, you will need to:
Submit a Student Employment Application to the supervisor in the department with the opening
Be interviewed and offered the job by the supervisor
Provide a personal and previous employer reference for most positions
Have a criminal background check (and driver check, if necessary for the position)
Get clearance from the Student Life Office
