Having a job while in college can help defray the costs of obtaining a degree, and equip you with some of the necessary skills needed to enter the workforce post-graduation. (There are a lot of benefits to working while in college; for more reasons, read “Working On-Campus Has Its Perks”.)
In 2017-18 there were approximately 500 students working on-campus at PUC. If you’re thinking of getting a job while you’re a student here, this blog is for you!

Check the Student Employment page for posted jobs
The Student Employment page is your go-to resource for looking to see what jobs are open and have been posted. It also lists off-campus jobs from organizations that have contacted PUC and are interested in potentially hiring PUC students. The closer it gets to school starting in September, the more jobs will likely be posted as departments evaluate their needs for the coming year.
Complete a PUC Employment Application
The PUC Employment Application is required of all students to complete when applying for a job on-campus. This 4-page PDF asks basic information regarding your employment history and education.
Complete the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form
Along with some form of identification (such as your passport, driver’s license, or Social Security card), you will also need to submit the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form.
Have your resume up-to-date, just in case
It’s a good idea to have your resume ready to go to submit along with the PUC Employment Application and the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form. Depending on where you’re applying, they may want to check your references as well, so let your people know they might be getting a call or email from your potential employer.
If you have any questions about the process, contact the Payroll Office at (707)965-7300 (ext. 7300 on campus) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
