Welcome to all community employers who wish to advertise part-time hourly jobs on the University HireaHawk system.  We are excited that you have chosen to hire University students for these positions. These community job opportunities are very important to students as they play a big role in their personal and professional development by:

  • Improving their time management skills
  • Reducing their need for student loans and indebtedness
  • Gain career experience while helping to clarify their goals, gain self-confidence, and build a network of contacts
  • Providing opportunities to expand their social circle

Establishing Rate of Pay

The employer determines the hourly rate of pay based on job duties and qualifications and the current job market.  The student's experience and background for the particular job should be used as criteria in setting the exact hourly wage.
