Student Employment Process
How do I find a job? Open job postings are updated daily. Review as many job descriptions as you may be interested in. You may apply for more than one position, but you may only accept and work in one job at a time.
How do I apply for a job? Once you have decided that you are qualified and are interested in applying for a position, complete the online application below the description. Fill out the entire online application and click Finish. You may attach a resume if you wish.
The Interview Process: For each application you submit, the position’s supervisor will review it and, if interested, will contact you to set up an interview. Interviews can be conducted on the phone or in person. If you are scheduled for an in-person interview, please make sure that you are dressed appropriately…no shorts, t-shirts, flip-flops. Bring any pertinent information with you that you think will be relevant to your interview such as your resume or references if you have them.
The Hiring Process: Remember, you can only accept and work ONE job at the time. Once you have been offered a work-study position, your supervisor will submit a Permission to Hire a Student Employee form. The Student Employment Office will contact you and your supervisor in order to collect your employment documents.
What you need to start your job: The following employment documents must be received by the Student Employment Office in order for you to start work.
1. Confidentiality agreement - Each year all student workers are required to sign an agreement that they will keep certain CSU information private and confidential before they can begin working. You may print, complete, and mail in. Our mailing address is Student Employment Office, CSU, P. O. Box 118087, Charleston, SC 29423.
2. Form W-4 – Complete Form W-4 so that CSU can withhold the correct federal income tax from your pay. You may print, complete and mail in. Our mailing address is Student Employment Office, CSU, P. O. Box 118087, Charleston, SC 29423.
3. I-9 Online (If you have worked for CSU within the last six months you are not required to complete a new I-9.) The Employment Eligibility Form must be completed in order to document that each new employee is authorized to work in the United States. This form cannot be mailed or faxed.
You must read carefully the I-9 instructions. 1. Students must complete section 1 online. Review the required list of acceptable documents. You must bring with you one document from list A OR 2 documents – one from list B and one from list C. You will be required to bring the original documents you choose from the list of acceptable documents to the Student Employment Office so that we can complete Section 2 of your I-9.
You will NOT be authorized to work at CSU until we have reviewed your documents and completed Section 2.
4. Student Employment Contract - This contract will be ready for your signature and your supervisor’s signature once you have submitted all your required documents.
Remember: You may not start work until the Student Employment Office receives your signed contract. This is the last step before you can begin work.
