Student Employment

Indiana State University students often work in jobs on the University campus and in the Terre Haute community.

Many benefits exist for students who can balance the demands of work and school. Students who successfully manage classroom and employment commitments are much more likely to impress employers by demonstrating strong time-management skills. Working on campus or in the community also helps students connect with resources which may help them with challenges in and out of the classroom.

Student Employment helps students search for part-time work on and/or off campus. Our office provides free job posting and on-line application services to students and employers through the University’s Applicant Tracking System.
