Campus Student Employment for Campus Employers

The CCPD encourages the use of one departmental contact for the College's student employment program. We encourage departments to rely on their contact to post openings, respond to inquiries, and either do the hiring or forward applicants to the direct supervisor (should you not also serve in that role). If you are no longer serving in this role, please contact Terri Raich with the name of the new contact for your department.

How To "Post a Campus Position" in K-Connect

  • Login to K-Connect
  • Hover your cursor over "My Jobs" in the gray navigational bar near the top of the page.
  • Select "Job List" to choose a job you would like to copy for use this year.
  • Click "Copy Job" in the left navigation bar
    • The previously posted job will close and a new "copy" will automatically open
    • Revise and Save
  • Select "New Job" to create a new position from scratch.
  • For Fall Quarter Jobs Only (Campus Priority Hiring):
    • Use "Post Date: 8/17/17"
    • Use "Expiration Date: 9/18/17"
    • If you are able to hold a fall campus position for a first-year student, please designate by including "(reserved for first-year)" in the job title.

Fall Campus 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

While general eligibility information is included in the K-Connect database, enabling contacts/supervisors to easily identify these students through a search (see below), specific information is not included in K-Connect. Work/Study financial information is maintained by Financial Aid.
