Finding an On-Campus Job
Learn about the part-time job board, documentation you need to bring to campus, and work-study.
Adapted from Haverford’s “New Students: Working on Campus” web page.
Financial Aid & Work-Study
If a work-study award is part of your financial aid package (see the information you received from Haverford’s Financial Aid Office), it typically comes out to working 8 hours per week.
To help make sure students can fulfill that commitment, the first two weeks of the first semester all campus employers give preference to work-study applicants. It is crucial for work-study students to start the job search early and to apply for jobs during this window! When applying, let the office know that having a campus job is part of your Financial Aid package.
If you encounter any problems with finding an on-campus job, please contact CCPA (hc-ccpa [at] haverford.edu).
Don’t have a work-study commitment to fulfill? You can still apply during that two week period, though priority will be given to your peers on work-study until the conclusion of the two week period.
Part-Time Job Board
CCPA regularly posts on-campus jobs on the Part-Time Job Board. It is each student’s responsibility to contact and apply directly to the departments that posted the position. Application requirements may vary from job to job, so make sure to ask what you should submit to be considered for the job.
How it Works:
- Review the on-campus jobs. Be sure to apply the filter “On Campus Jobs – Haverford” on the Part Time Job Board.
- Apply. Each posting contains information about the position, the application process, and the contact person. Be certain to apply to several on campus jobs. This way, if one of the positions gets filled, you will still have other options.
- Meet with HR. When you are hired, schedule an appointment prior to your first day of work to meet with a representative in the Human Resources office. You must bring the actual I-9 documentation to this appointment for the HR office to view during the on-boarding meeting. Review the list of acceptable I-9 documents (page 3). You must have your original documents—faxes or copies cannot be accepted. If you do not have this documentation, you will not be allowed to work.
Visa-Carrying International Students
All visa-carrying international students must first go to Natasha Weisz in the International Student Support Office for all employment-related matters.
Student Employment Program
The mission of the student employment program is to provide students with meaningful work experiences that build practical skills particular to a certain function and general skills such as discipline, teamwork, and problem solving.
I-9 documentation provides proof of one’s eligibility to legally work in the United States. All students who have never worked for the College before must schedule an in-person meeting with HR within 3 days of hire to provide original I-9 documentation. Copies and faxes are not acceptable. Review the list of acceptable I-9 documents (page 3) or learn more about completing elections in Workday.
Note: All student workers must log into Workday, the College’s HR/Payroll system to on-board as a new hire and enter time worked. You will use the same login and password created for your campus email.
New hires are encouraged to review the Hourly Staff and Student Worker Training documentation.
