Campus Student Employment for Campus Employers

Handshake

The CCPD has replaced our K-Connect database with a more user-friendly and widely-adopted platform called Handshake.

If you need to post campus student employment positions for the fall and did NOT receive an email directly from Handshake inviting you to claim your employer profile, please contact the CCPD at career@kzoo.edu for instructions.

Handshake is easy to use. The required online training for supervisors walks you through getting started and posting your campus jobs.

As part of the campus-wide effort to professionalize student employment, we invite you to consider including "skills gained in this position" and "skills sought in applicants" as part of your posting. For more information on skills and competencies sought by employers, please see http://www.naceweb.org/uploadedfiles/pages/knowledge/articles/career-readiness-fact-sheet.pdf.

Fall Priority Hiring

For fall employment, College policy is to give priority hiring to a designated group of students:

  • First-Year and Returning Students with Federal Work/Study
  • Transfer Students with Federal Work/Study
  • Posse Students with Campus Employment Award
  • International Students with Campus Employment Award

In order to ensure that students with Federal Work/Study and Campus Employment awards secure campus jobs, it is important for campus employers to observe the College policy for priority hiring whenever possible. The current list of priority eligible students may be accessed via Financial Aid.

We are happy to answer questions and offer support as you begin to use Handshake for your on-campus postings. Please contact the CCPD at career@kzoo.edu for assistance.
