How can we help you find a job?

Posted on June 6, 2014

Wheaton’s Student Employment program provides students the opportunity to work to help defray college expenses and to gain valuable, long-lasting skills.  Here is some information to help you navigate the process. Feel free to check out the rest of our site for other value pieces of information.

  • Student employment is available to both students who have Federal Work Study and those who do not.  These jobs are called Wheaton Work and are funded by the College.
  • Wheaton College cannot guarantee the availability of on-campus employment for all students.  However, the Student Employment staff is always available to assist students who have difficulty finding employment. You may contact us at sfs@wheatoncollege.edu or stop by Student Financial Services to set up an appointment.
  • If you are struggling with the job search process, do not wait to contact us!  We are happy to help you navigate through the process.
  •  There is also a Student Employment job fair held during the first week of classes.  All students interested in working on campus are encouraged to attend.
  • Students are not assigned jobs at Wheaton, but apply directly to the supervisor listed on the job posting online.  Some departments require an application and/or resume, others will require an interview.  It is up to individual departments.  Please use the contact information listed on the job posting.
  • If you have questions regarding the job or the requirements, do not hesitate to contact the supervisor listed!  They will be more than happy to answer them for you.
  • Once a student is hired to work on-campus, there are a number of forms to complete to get the student on Wheaton’s payroll:  the Request for Work Authorization Form (fondly known as the RWAF), I-9, W-4, M-4 and Direct Deposit). The RWAF is completed by both the student employee and the supervisor and then brought to Student Financial Services, where the student completes the remaining forms.
  • Please note that the I-9 requires that employees provide specific and original documents to prove that an employee is eligible to work in the United States.   We cannot accept faxes, emails or photocopies per federal regulations.

Once again, we encourage you to begin the job search as early as possible when you arrive on-campus.  This will allow you to take advantage of the valuable resources available to you.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
