Student Job Service

The Student Job Service assists degree-seeking students in finding employment to help meet their educational expenses while attending Boston University. Employers both on-campus and throughout Greater Boston may use the free listing service to employ Boston University students.

Access to job listings and employment is limited to Boston University students who meet certain eligibility criteria. Make sure that you meet this eligibility criteria to view job listings, especially as an incoming student.

If you come across a job listing through the Student Job Service that you have questions or concerns about, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can remove jobs immediately and block the submitter from posting with us in the future.

Academic year job postings are typically posted starting late July throughout the Fall and Spring semesters, with an uptick in posting at the beginning and the end of each semester. Summer listings can start being posted as early as the beginning of January, so we encourage students to start looking for summer internships and jobs as soon as possible.

The Student Job Service is made up of two main categories:

  • Part-time Jobs – Long-term part-time and summer jobs.
  • Quick Jobs – Short-term employment. Must register to use this service.

The Student Job Service is a free job listing site for employers throughout the Greater Boston area. All hiring and compensation for work performed is handled directly between the student and the employer. The Student Job Service does not perform background checks on employers or companies, nor does it endorse or sanction any employer or company. Students are advised to use good judgment when accepting a position. Students should NEVER PAY for any type of employment opportunities. Please be aware that job scams do exist. If any employer asks for money or wishes to send you money (in any form) from in-state, out-of-state, or out-of-country, discontinue correspondence with that employer and contact our office immediately at
