Just a few notes about employment on campus…

  • Students conduct their own job search at Cornell, and word-of-mouth is one of the best ways to learn about employment opportunities.
  • Our job postings change every day, so students should check in on them daily.
  • One of the easiest ways to learn about opportunities is for the student to visit the department where they are interested in working and ask if they will be hiring for the academic year.
  • Only about 30% of our jobs require a student to be eligible for Federal Work Study, so any student interested in working should be able to find employment on campus.
  • Students with campus employment will be paid bi-weekly.
  • Students will be required to complete a Form I-9, and show original and unexpired proof of their identity and employability to work in the United States, before they start a job.

**To avoid delays in your student starting a new job, be sure they bring original and unexpired acceptable documentation with them to New Student Check-In at Barton Hall on Friday, August 18th, where they can complete the Form I-9 in preparation of any jobs they may have on campus at any time throughout their enrollment at Cornell.  A list of acceptable documents can be found online at**
