How to Search and Apply for an On-Campus Student Employment Job
All active on-campus employment opportunities are posted on SOU CareerLink. Each posting will have a preferred method for applying. Most campus departments will have you submit a resume through the SOU CareerLink system along with any additional documents.
However, some departments may prefer to have students complete an application in person. Therefore, it is important to read the full posting. Below are steps to help you search and apply for on-campus student employment opportunities.
- Log in to SOU CareerLink.
- Once logged in to SOU CareerLink you can search for work-study and non work-study employment opportunities. These links are located under the Quicklinks section.
- Apply for the position(s) that interest you. The Resume Basics handout provides tips on building a resume.
- You will be contacted by the department(s) if you are selected for an interview. Interview Basics and Interview Questions are two handouts that may be helpful in preparing for an interview.
If you have not been contacted by a department for an interview, you should follow up directly with the department(s) to inquire about your application status.
Interviewed candidates will be notified if the position is being offered to them. If you are offered a position and accept, it is highly recommended that you contact all other campus departments for which you have applied to inform them of your decision. By doing so, you will help others who are trying to get interviews or who are being considered for positions.
