How to Find College Students For Your Job Opening

This entry is part 3 of 6 in the series Resources

College students are very valuable workers for part-time, temporary, and seasonal positions, because they are in need of money and experience. Driven and motivated students make good workers because they want to earn money that can pay for their education. Knowing how to access a student body is vital when finding potential employees that are also college students.

Connecting with NAU

There are many ways for employers to connect directly with Northern Arizona University students. This can be done online and in person.

Jobs for Jacks is Northern Arizona University’s online employment database, available for students and alumni. NAU students and graduates can browse open positions and apply directly through Jobs for Jacks, or through the employer themselves. Employers can register to become a member of Jobs for Jacks, which allows employers to post job opportunities of all types. Employers can also browse student profiles and communicate with them directly.

Employers can also connect with NAU students by participating in a number of events, such as career fairs, on-campus information sessions, workshops, and more. Meeting with students face-to-face and becoming known on campus is a great way to hire students.

If employers are looking specifically for business students, it would be best to go to W. A. Franke College of Business’ section of the NAU.edu website. Here, employers can post jobs and internships, participate in Career Exploration Day, give students the opportunity to job shadow, be on the Corporate Panel, and much more to find the right business students.
