On-Campus Employers

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. Connect with our team to develop student employment opportunities within your department, craft job descriptions, advertise positions on Handshake, recruit applicants, and navigate the hiring process.

Campus departments are required to post all student employment positions on Handshake, report hires in the Student Employment System before employment begins, and review and approve timesheets in Workforce Time. 

Handshake, Wesleyan’s online undergraduate/alumni career management platform and job board, 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 undergraduate students have a Handshake account and job postings are accessible to all undergraduate students.

Workforce Time, Wesleyan’s time-keeping system, is how student employees record time and how supervisors review and approve timesheets. Employers must hire student employees in the “student employment system” via WesPortal in order to be able to track time in Workforce Time and be paid.
