Part-Time and Summer Jobs

Center for community

Looking for a job while you attend SUNY Geneseo? Use Handshake! The online system for students to find jobs and employers to post jobs. Follow the link to sign on and view jobs. You may upload a resume, save your job search, register for workshops, have new job listings emailed to you, and more! If you have any difficulty logging in, email us at *

*The central mission is to help locate off-campus opportunities for students. However, we do our best to assist students looking for on-campus work as well. On-campus positions that have been reported to us are posted on Handshake.

More Options for On-Campus Employment

  • Federal Work Study positions are awarded to students who demonstrate financial need on their FAFSA for the current school year. The program is managed through the Financial Aid office in Erwin 104. Most entry level jobs on campus are first filled through the work study program. Please visit Financial Aid if you have questions specific to the Work study program.CAS

  • Temporary Service positions are not based on financial need. Any full-time student is eligible to work under this category. The jobs are often very similar to work study positions, but paid through a different budget line. Any Temporary Service position reported to us is posted on Handshake. Check the site often! On campus positions are in high demand and go quickly!

  • Keep in mind that not all on-campus jobs are advertised with us. Check with specific offices, departments, libraries, dining halls, and residence halls (night hosting) for other on-campus positions.
