Students seeking employment look through the list of openings on JobCat for positions that attract their interest. Be sure when you are setting up an interview that the student you are interested in hiring is Work-Study eligible.

3. How Can I Attract Students to a Job?

If an employer experiences difficulty filling a position, classified ads in our weekly student newspaper Collegian (503-370-6053) are usually a successful method for attracting applicants. Employers may also consider posting ads around campus or on the bulletin board outside the Office of Financial Aid. Please note that certain areas of the campus, such as the Residence Halls, may require prior approval for posting ads on their bulletin boards.
