Student Employment

Student Employment Office for On-Campus Jobs

Each year over 2,600 Creighton students help meet their educational expenses by working here at Creighton, both through the Federal Work Study program and University funded employment.   

Student employees serve in a wide variety of positions from intramural referees at soccer games to research assistants in Health Sciences labs.  The person who answers the phone when you call a campus department is often a Creighton student.  The friendly face you see when approaching a receptionist’s desk is often a student worker.  They escort you to your car when it’s late at night, watch over your toddler in the Child Care Center, put your library books back on the shelves, sort your mail and monitor the safety cameras in the parking lots.  They file your chart when you are seeking treatment in the Dental Clinic or the Medical Center. And don’t forget, that personality behind Billy Bluejay is a student worker.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security requires that all new employees complete an Employment Eligibility Verification Form (I-9) when hired.  When completing this form, you must show specific documentation to prove your identity and your eligibility to work in the United States.  By federal law, we cannot authorize you to begin employment or release your job assignment to you until we witness the documentation.  Bring one of these ORIGINAL documents, along with a valid photo ID with you to campus.  We have to see you in person with the document in hand.
