Students are responsible for contacting employers and completing application processes. Registered students also have the opportunity to search online through the JobConnect link at www.cortland.edu/career for additional part-time job postings.

These must be original documents, not copies, to complete the I-9 OR a current U.S. or foreign passport without any other ID.

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT SUGGESTIONS
Offices that offer many on-campus jobs include: Residence Life and Housing, Recreational Sports, Athletics, ASC Dining Services, Library and Corey Union in addition to other offices.
Many off-campus jobs are near campus — within walking or biking distance or close to a bus route. Don’t rule out off-campus work even if you don’t have a car at college.
The most successful students are persistent, following-up often with busy employers. They dress professionally when visiting employers in person and offer a simple resume with their applications. They remain as flexible as possible with their weeknight and weekend schedules and regularly check our job postings for the most attractive jobs.
