The Ohio State University
In addition to the Federal Work-Study Program, this office also maintains an online posting of both on-campus and off-campus job opportunities as a service to students and employers. Choose one of the options below to view the student employment positions we currently have posted. If you are an employer wishing to post a job with us, please see our posting instructions.
Working on campus is a great option because university employers are often more flexible about scheduling your work hours around your class schedule, and transportation and travel time are seldom a problem.
Ohio State departments employ students in all sorts of jobs. Students work as intramural sports referees, library assistants, aerobics monitors, veterinary or medical assistants, and in clerical and administrative positions all over campus.
Located less than two miles from campus, downtown Columbus holds numerous employment possibilities for students. A 15-minute bus ride can take you to the heart of the city, where you'll find Ohio government offices and many insurance companies, banks, and retail employers. Other areas around Columbus are also easily accessible by car or bus.
If you are looking for competitive pay rates, the chance to develop business contacts, or to get "real-world" experience, you may want to pursue an off-campus position.
More than 800 students work each quarter in dining commons food service and residence hall office services. While preference is given to students residing in the residence halls, all students are encouraged to apply for positions. Depending on your choice of positions, you should contact a dining commons manager (food service) or a residence halls area office. Get contact information online from University Residences and Dining Services.
The Ohio Union also provides you with a good source of employment opportunities. Positions are available in food service, computer programming, maintenance, recreation, audio/video services, housekeeping, and graphic art. If interested, visit the Ohio Union online for additional information.
Individual academic departments sometimes hire students for seasonal or research positions. You should check with individual departments about available positions. Also check out jobs available in the Ohio State libraries and Recreational Sports (RPAC).
Businesses in the campus area hire a large number of students on a part-time basis. Shortly before the beginning of each semester - especially autumn - is the best time to find these positions. Watch the classified ads in the Lantern or just walk into the business establishments to inquire about available positions.
The classified ads in The Columbus Dispatch are a standard source for employment prospects. Because the local newspaper's Help Wanted Section does not specialize in student employment you may find it useful both during your college career and in finding permanent, full-time employment.
