How to Find a Job

As an incoming student with a work award you have two options on how to find a job:

  1. Find Your Own Job
    This option allows you to complete a traditional job search. You can view job postings online and apply for jobs that interest you.
    Remember to complete a Notification of Hiring (NOH) form after securing a job. 
  2. Be Placed in a Position
    If you choose this option the CSB/SJU Student Employment Office will place you in a department.  There are a limited number of positions available, and these positions will be filled on a first come first serve basis.    

To Find Your Own Job

  1. View Available Positions
    • All open positions are posted on the CSB/SJU Student Employment Jobs website at:
    • Select Fall 2014. 
    • Click on the job title to view a full job description.
    • The jobs website is updated every weekday. You can sort by date to see which job postings are new.
  2. Apply for Positions
    • Follow the link or directions at the bottom of the job description to apply. Most positions have an online application.
    • Apply to more than just a couple of departments. Jobs are competitive and it is important for you to be proactive in your job search. Some departments may have as many as 25-30 applicants for one position.
    • Check new job postings regularly, not just one time.
    • Proofread your application before submitting; this is your first impression to supervisors.
    • Keep track of which jobs you applied for and when - it will make it easier to follow up.
  3. Follow Up
    • After you have applied to a position, follow up with the supervisor within one to two weeks to check the status of your application and to request an interview.
  4. Interview
  5. Accept Position
    • Once a supervisor extends a job offer to you, let him/her know if you will accept or decline the job.
    • After accepting a position, complete the online Notification of Hiring Form (NOH). You will need to know your supervisors email address to complete the NOH.
