Hire A Student

This page is your one-stop location for information on student employment, including procedures, rules, and forms you will need to complete as a on-campus employer.


Hiring Process

First-time job postings require a position number (a funding source number from Budget Services). Repeat job postings have position number(s) that you may use again. Check with Budget Services to verify the number is correct and valid for both Academic and Summer quarters.

Faculty and staff can post on-campus student job opportunities through BroncoConnection, our online career management resource.  Job opportunities must be posted for a minimum 3 days to meet EEO requirements.  Once the position has been posted for 3 days, a system generated email will be sent to you with a Career Center electronically signed student employment authorization form.  If you are hiring multiple students for the same job you may print copies of the electronically signed form. 

Students are required to complete a Student Employment Application and submit through BroncoConnection.  A resume is also highly encouraged as part of the student employment process.

When you decide on the student(s) you would like to INTERVIEW, you are now required to print out the following document for the student interviewees to complete and retain in your department. (supplemental employment application).

Once a candidate(s) is/are chosen and the student meets the criteria for employment, the hiring process must be completed PRIOR to the student beginning to work in position. Human Resources requires original signatures of student, supervisor, and HEERA manager.  

Students are NO LONGER REQUIRED to bring the form to the Career Center for a signature. The student will take the completed form to Human Resources for processing. The student will then bring YOU, the employer, a hiring slip from HR once the paperwork process has been completed. Upon receiving the hiring slip, the student may then begin working in your department.
