How to apply for Student Employment 

To secure a job on campus, the best tool is networking.  There is not a one-stop spot where all campus jobs are posted - this is because most offices like to meet students in person.  Therefore, students should also consider inquiring within campus offices.

  • Only about 4% of all campus jobs are filled by First-Semester Freshmen, so most work opportunities will present themselves in the second and third semester of college studies
  • Looking for a job at SRU is very much like the real world.  A very small number of campus jobs (less than 5%) are posted on SRU Career Connection
  • New students will not have access to the system until late in the summer prior to their first semester at SRU

To access your SRU Career Connection Account:

  • Go to or click on the icon to the right
  • Click on the 'Students' icon
  • Log into the system using your SRU email address and password
  • Click 'Go'
  • In order to view or apply for jobs, you must update your account information

To locate, fill out, and upload the general Student Employment Application (on-campus employment form):

  • In the SRU Career Connection system, click on the 'Resources' Tab
  • Select 'Document Library'
  • From the list, select 'Student Employment Application'
  • Click 'Open' to download the file to your computer's Word program (be sure to Enable Editing in order to enter your information)
  • Once you've filled in the document, save it to your computer (remember to name your application professionally and appropriately for the position, for example: John Doe_Application_Art Dept)
  • Now, that the document is saved you can upload it to your SRU Career Connection account
  • Click on the 'Documents' Tab
  • Click on the 'Add New' button
  • Label your document (similar to your file name)
  • Choose the file you wish to upload
  • Select the 'Student Employment Application' bubble
  • Click 'Submit' which will put the completed application in your account

To submit your Student Employment Application to a position:

  • Once you have found an on-campus position which asks for the Student Employment Application, you can click on the 'Apply' button
  • A new pop-up screen will appear which will allow you to select the files asked for in the position such as Student Employment Application, Resume, Cover Letter etc.
  • If a document is required, you must have it uploaded to your account and select it in order to apply
  • Once you have selected your documents and added a personal note, if you wish, you can select the 'Submit' button to have your materials sent to the contact
  • Always be sure to read the Application instructions for each postings since some offices may want applications sent through the system or dropped off in their office location.
