Student Employment Handbook - Overview of Student Employment Program
The Career Exploration and Development Executive Director is the appointing authority responsible for the administration of student employment throughout the eight-campus system.
Career Exploration and Development's Student Employment Handbook, Recruiting Policy, and the KSU Policy Register serve to clarify the procedures, policies, and legal hiring practices associated with student employment at Kent State. The University's student employment programs are subject to and will be administered in accordance with applicable Federal and State laws governing employment practices.
Career Exploration and Development's centralized student employment service is designed to provide all students equal access to job information and opportunities. Kent State employs more than 5,000 students annually in over 8,000 positions on campus.
Employment should complement a student's academic experience. It is the policy of the University to employ students part-time, and not to displace or reduce full-time employment opportunities.
Career Exploration and Development also administers the Job Location and Development Program in order to develop off-campus employment opportunities for students, regardless of financial need. Students can view all on- and off-campus position openings on HANDSHAKE.
