Opportunities span across Weber State with applicable experiences for many different majors and work study programs. Exploring resources available to those seeking employment is always encouraged.

The career services department is where students can find the most information relating to current job openings and employment at Weber. Students are also encouraged to use Handshake, a free online resource tool developed by career services. The handshake application can help students find work in their fields of study or interest, notify students of job openings on campus, and streamline student employment applications so the most benefit can be extracted by both the student and department that is hiring.

Becoming employed with WSU not only provides students with opportunities to learn, grow and serve campus, it can provide incentives for students as well. Students are paid and may receive incentives towards tuition and costs of attendance.

Each job and department have different qualifications and programs for students. It is recommended that those searching for a job with incentives use the job search tool and read descriptions of the jobs they are applying for. Incentives while working on campus can help alleviate some of the financial burdens incurred while attending college while also providing experience in an applicable field.
