Quick Jobs

Quick Jobs allow students to work around their academic schedules and require only a short-term commitment. These positions range from party help or raking leaves to assisting in medical research studies or developing a web site, and may last from 15 minutes to one month.

New jobs are posted continuously to the Quick Job Listings throughout the day.

Most jobs are available at the convenience of the employer, but are usually completed within the week. If you’re looking for an ongoing part-time job to provide you with steady income, however, check out the Part-Time Jobs.

Students interested in Quick Jobs are required to register for the service, agreeing to the service’s regulations.  Students contact employers and are paid directly by them. Once a student has accepted a position, it is their responsibility to notify the employer if they can no longer work the job or will be missing a shift.  Failure to do so may result in a suspension from using the Student Job 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 Employment Office does NOT perform background checks on listing employers or companies, nor does it endorse or sanction any employer or company.  Students are advised to use good judgment when accepting off-campus positions listed under the Job Board or Quick Job Service.  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 out-of-state or country, discontinue correspondence with that employer and contact our office immediately at seo@bu.edu.
