Posting a Job
Post a job with the Student Job Service.
View our Job Posting Guide for step-by-step instructions, tips, and things to keep in mind when posting with the Student Job Service.
All BU students enrolled in a degree-seeking program who meet eligibility criteria have access to the Student Job Service, comprised of Part-Time jobs and Quick jobs, which acts as an advertisement service. Earnings of students found through the Part-Time Job listings are charged 100% to the hiring department.
When posting a position for an On-Campus department paying through BU Payroll, supervisors are asked to categorize these positions as “On-Campus”.
Post a Work-Study Job
BU students with a Federal Work-Study award have access to the Work-Study Job Directory three times a year (fall, spring, and summer). Work-Study Dates and Deadlines includes exact dates of availability for each semester.
For the largest pool of candidates, you may choose to post with both the Student Job Service and Work-Study. However, you cannot discriminate applicants based on Work-Study award and must be prepared to hire from both the general pool of students AND those with Work-Study. This information should be discussed after the interview process, when discussing hiring procedure/process.
Email us the Work-Study job number of the position and indicate that you want the position posted in both locations.
Tips for Any Job Postings
- Include your location, i.e. “located at/near.” Students tend to take positions by campus, but having that information upfront ensures that only those who can visit your location will reach out with their interest.
- Provide scheduling requirements, so you don’t waste your or the students’ time. Indicate any possible flexibility within this schedule.
- Spice it up. You are competing with other job listings.
