On-Campus Employers

Fall 2023 Reminders:

Complete this form to submit a job posting for Handshake.

If you post a job on Handshake, use this REQUIRED Campus Job Posting Template.


The Gordon Career Center collaborates with Wesleyan faculty and staff to recruit and hire talented students for part-time jobs and internships in departments across campus during the academic year and through the summer months. Connect with our team to develop campus employment opportunities within your department, craft job descriptions, advertise positions on Handshake, recruit interested students, and navigate the hiring process.

Hourly wage campus jobs must be posted on Handshake for all eligible candidates to have the opportunity to apply in advance of making hiring decisions. Once a job offer is made and accepted, and before work begins, report the new hire in the ‘Student Employment System’ via WesPortal to indicate the employee’s supervisor, duration of employment, whether the role requires a background check,  and which smart key the student employee’s salary should be drawn from. Allow for at least two business days between reporting the hire in the Student Employment System and when the student employee begins work. Student employees should only begin working once they are able to successfully clock in and out of their position on Workforce Time.

Handshake, Wesleyan’s online career management platform and job board for undergraduates, graduates, and alumni, is one of the most effective ways for departments to advertise campus job and internship opportunities, identify and communicate with potential candidates, and collect and review application materials. All Wesleyan students have a Handshake account and job postings are accessible to all students.
