Quickie Jobs

The Quick Job Service provides free job listings for employers needing short-term (one month or less) or one-time-only help. If you are looking to hire a student on a more permanent basis, see Part-Time and Summer Jobs.

Jobs are categorized to help you reach the best candidates for your listing:

  • Child/Elder Care
  • Clerical/Computer Help
  • General
  • Home Services
  • Moving
  • On-Campus
  • Party Help/Catering
  • Research/Focus Groups
  • Yardwork

If no category seems to suit your job description, use General or contact us for guidance.

You can post your job using our web form, or contact the Student Job Service by phone or e-mail.

Jobs remain posted for two weeks. We will contact you at the end of this period to find out if you have filled the position or if you would like to repost it. You may remove a posting at any time by simply contacting us. When leaving a message about your placement, please provide your telephone number and the full name(s) of the student(s) who accepted your job.

All degree-seeking Boston University students may view job descriptions posted with the Quick Job Service. However, in order to receive contact information for a job, students must first register with us. This ensures that they abide by the policies of the Service. Every time information on an employer is requested, we confirm the student’s employment eligibility and produce a referral form for him or her to bring to the employer.

College students tend to be committed employees. It is important to remember, however, that we do not screen students for skills or references. Before hiring a student, be sure that he or she has the skills to do the job. You are also encouraged to request and verify references.

Registered students are not permitted to bring non-registered individuals with them on any job. We recommend that employers ask to see the referral form and a BU identification card when the student reports to work. Please notify our office if any student brings along a non-registered individual or refuses to show identification. We also welcome any feedback on the students that work for you.
