Student Hiring

Kalamazoo College students work in a variety of capacities for the College, as well as through some of our off-campus partnerships. Human Resources and the Center for Career and Professional Development partner to support students, faculty, and staff to ensure the campus employment is a valuable experience for everyone involved.

The following processes should be followed

  • Post a position on Handshake, then
  • Identify students to fill the vacancy, then
  • Make a hiring decision, then
  • Notify Human Resources of the hiring decision, then
  • Ensure that student employees are paid appropriately for time worked, then
  • Engage the student employee(s) to maximize learning and growth, efficiency, and preparation for future employment opportunities.
