On-Campus Job Opportunities
Parents and Incoming Students - How Do You Learn of Student Campus Job Opportunities?
The various offices and work sites on campus greatly depend on student employees to fill a number of work positions throughout the year. About 300 student positions are filled annually, ranging from office assistants, to grounds workers, to cafeteria assistants, and even some opportunities that may be able to carry internship credit as well (such as for accounting students who might want to work in our Business Affairs office, or students who may wish to work in our PR office). Work sites will use students who are approved for work-study as part of their FAFSA approval process, as well as students who do not qualify for work-study. Each job posting should indicate the restrictions for the respective posted student job opportunity. (Questions about work-study? See Financial Aid Office in Roselawn.)
Students access listings of currently-available on-campus jobs through MaroonNet, our secure online jobs and internship site. All students have access to this site. New incoming students will gain access within 48 hours of registering for classes for their first semester. The student link for MaroonNet is http://www.roanoke.edu/maroonnet - use your RC user name and password to enter.
In the left menu, once at your Welcome page, choose Job Search. When the pull-down menu appears, again choose Job Search. Enter "RC" in the search bar for the employer name, and you should get all of the campus jobs that are active at the time. (We ask all campus student employers to list their names as "RC office name," for ease in location.) It is advisable to check this site often, as we never know when campus employers will post a need, though the busiest times will be as we near the end of one semester, moving into another. Note that, beginning August 1, a campus student employer may NOT hire a student without first having the job posted on MaroonNet for a minimum of one work week (five business days). All jobs must be posted!
MaroonNet is also used to post off-campus jobs and paid internships, with access through the same link as given above. Many local employers will post part-time jobs for students, from retail, to child care, to tutoring.
