Go to: How do I apply to positions?

Important notice: Purdue University is currently accepting applications for our positions. In response to COVID-19, Purdue University has placed a pause on staff hiring. As a result, select positions have been placed on hold. The status for positions intending to continue the recruitment process will be reflected in the posting.

Where can I find student job postings?

Applicants can see all active job postings based on their current employment status. Jobs can be posted to an internal job site, external job site, or both. Only current employees can view job postings on the internal job site. Before applying for a job, be sure you are in the correct job posting site based on your employment status.

In general, graduate student positions and regular student hourly positions would be listed under the "Student" category.
