Finding Jobs On Campus
Searching for a student employment position at APU is similar to obtaining employment with other organizations. You can search and apply for on-campus jobs through the Handshake platform. The Office of Student Employment can offer guidance throughout the process and will ensure that all hire-related documentation is obtained and accurate in accordance with California and federal employment law and practice through our onboarding system, SilkRoad.
Before you begin your job search:
- Verify that you meet the Eligibility Requirements (PDF) for working on campus.
- Have original identification necessary to obtain employment. Photocopies of identification will not be accepted. View the List of Acceptable Documents for Hire (PDF).
- Review Student Employment Pay Scale 2023 (PDF).
Job search steps:
Step 1: View Available Positions Online Using the Handshake Platform.
Departments and offices on campus hire student employees on a regular basis. As positions become available, they will be posted to our career platform, Handshake.
Step 2: Complete an Application Online through Handshake
Supervisors will contact students directly to schedule interviews.
Step 3: New Employee Onboarding Paperwork through SilkRoad
After a supervisor has recommended a student for hire, the student will receive an email with a link to the electronic onboarding portal, SilkRoad Onboarding. This portal contains employment documents that are required for employment purposes. Keep in mind that additional tasks will become available after the initial tasks are completed. Be sure to continue to check the portal after you complete each step to ensure you have successfully completed all required tasks.
Step 4: Reviewing Identification to Complete Form I-9
Once the student is offered an on-campus position, he or she must bring identification to the Office of Student Employment to complete form I-9. Original identification is necessary to obtain employment; photocopies cannot be accepted. Once all necessary documentation has been reviewed and processed, the student will be entered into the university’s timekeeping system and may begin employment. Please note: No student may start working until employment documents are entered into the system and the timekeeping account is created.
Step 5 : Campus SaVE, FERPA, and Sexual Harassment Prevention Training
Upon hire, all student employees will be required to complete Campus SaVE, FERPA, and Sexual Harassment Prevention Training. Time spent completing these online training sessions is paid time. Please include this time on your electronic time card.
The Office of Student Employment at Azusa Pacific University, in compliance with the law and in order to provide a God-honoring work environment that encourages respect and esteem for each member of the community, requires Campus SaVE, FERPA, and Sexual Harassment Prevention Training at least every two years (within two weeks of hire) for all faculty, staff, and student employees at all APU locations. This policy is consistent with valuing the safety and comfort of each employee and striving to create respectful, productive workplace dynamics across all offices and departments.
AB 1825, California’s mandatory sexual harassment training law (codified at Cal. Lab. Code § 12950.1), was adopted by the California legislature in 2004. Starting on January 1, 2006, all employers with 50 or more employees were required to provide at least two hours of sexual harassment training once every two years for supervisors located in the state of California.
Step 6: Work, Timekeeping, and Paydays
Supervisors will provide students with a work schedule and review any pertinent information necessary for the particular position for which the student has been hired. Students must also review the Student Employment Handbook (PDF) before beginning work. Students will be expected to log all hours worked into our automated timekeeping system. View the Timekeeping Policy (PDF). Students will be paid on a bi-weekly basis.
