Campus Employment

Another great way to get involved at Ohio State is through on-campus employment. The university employs thousands of students each year, and these jobs are often flexible with your class schedule and other activities. Students who work on campus get to learn more about the university structure, build great connections with coworkers and gain skills that future employers are seeking – all while earning a paycheck!

The Office of Student Life is the largest employer of students on campus each year, and one great benefit of working within Student Life is the Student Employment Experience, or SEE for short. Through SEE, supervisors take time each semester to discuss how your job can help you toward academic and career goals. Also, student employees get access to paid professional development workshops each semester.

To see all of the great opportunities available on campus, check out Handshake, OSU's university-wide position posting system where students have access to search and apply for part-time jobs, internships, co-ops and full-time career opportunities. Thousands of jobs, internship and career opportunities are posted in Handshake as well as information on upcoming career fairs and on-campus recruiting events.

At, you’ll find a terrific resource that shows available positions, pay rates and instructions for applying to jobs. The Student Financial Aid jobs board not only posts the positions available for students who qualify for Federal Work-Study, but also general on-campus jobs, too! This is another resource for finding a great job on campus!

You can also find a variety of great resources for your career development here at OSU. Buckeye Careers offers a variety of career development workshops and career counseling services. Many colleges also have their own career services departments that can give you specific career advice for your major.
