Student Employment Opportunities

Jobs are available for both Federal Work-Study (FWS) recipients and those that do not have this award. The rate of pay for FWS and other jobs is the same and based on level of complexity of the job. All vacant student employment positions are advertised through Student Employment’s JobQuest’s site at ECSUJobs beginning in August. Students work an average of 10-12 hours per week on campus and in the greater Willimantic community. To qualify for employment, student must be:

· Enrolled in a degree-granting program

· Registered for credits in the semester/term they wish to work

· Up-to-date on their tuition and fee payments

Finding a position is easy through the JobQuest site. Students can search 24/7. Online applications are accepted for all on-campus positions with departments responding through University email. Students can post a Resume Brief viewed by employers searching for qualified candidates. Students can sign up for JobMail, a system that automatically emails jobs that match criteria selected. Students should apply early because the number of open positions are limited. Once a student has found a position and been hired, they cannot begin work until they have received their work authorization. Students can contact Student Employment for more details.
