Student Employment Service

We are excited about the Geneseo's recent transition to Handshake - a modern platform for students to find jobs and employers to recruit current students and alumni. Handshake replaces KnightJobs. 

Students, for more information about Handshake, see the Career Development page hereHandshake login guide for students is now available.

Employers, visit Handshake's Employer Site. For resources on Handshake, refer to the Handshake two-minute training video . 

Would you like to hire students for jobs at your home or small business? Students continue to look for jobs, especially on-campus or walking distance jobs. Consider posting these jobs in Handshake. For more information on making an employer account for these types of jobs, go to: Registering at Handshake with a Generic Email/Posting Babysitting, Household, or Caretaker type jobs

"Student Employment Service (SES) at SUNY Geneseo acts only as a referral service. SES makes no recommendations or guarantees about positions and employers listed through this office. SES is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or other aspects of off-campus employment. Due to the volume of jobs received by SES, we are unable to research the integrity of every position listed. Therefore, students are urged to take on this responsibility themselves. We encourage students to use common sense and caution when applying for any position. Do not feel pressured to provide sensitive, personal or financial information."
