What is Student Employment?

Student Employment refers to on-campus student work opportunities, as well as specific off-campus work-study opportunities with approved employers. Student Employment is an important part of your career development. Through student employment you can earn an hourly wage through temporary, part-time jobs during your time as a student at UTA. This includes all Student Assistant and Student Associate positions, including on-campus work-study, non-work-study, and off-campus work-study.

We help you have a positive, meaningful experience by:

  • Posting all available positions in Handshake
  • Providing you resources to practice your interview skills
  • Assisting you in understanding articulate your transferable skills to a potential employer
  • Referring you to resources within our office and across the university
  • Helping you navigate questions throughout your time as student employee

As a student employee, you are not eligible for tuition benefits or stipends as a form of compensation for work performed. Student Employment does not assign you to specific jobs but rather provides you with the resources necessary to locate the job that is best suited to your skills, needs, and interests. By participating you’ll gain a variety of experiences and workforce skills that can be used in your career after graduation.

Student Employment at UTA does not refer to full-time, part-time, or internship opportunities at external organizations or jobs through the Office of Talent, Culture, and Engagement. Please contact those departments for more information about available opportunities.
