Student Employment posts off-campus part-time jobs to assist students in securing part-time employment regardless of their financial aid eligibility. Additionally, the program is centered on creating real-world experiences for students that will not only increase self-knowledge, but develop marketable skills that will provide a solid foundation for securing career options beyond graduation. Jobs are posted on the Off-Campus Job Announcement website. Please check on a regular basis for jobs including but not limited to: childcare positions, tutors, administrative assistants, servers, and many more!
The JMU Student Work Experience Center (SWEC) acts only as an intermediary between employers posting job opportunities and candidates searching for part-time employment opportunities. All hiring and compensation for work performed by student employees is handled directly between the student and the employer.
All job postings are posted at the discretion of SWEC. We will not post jobs that appear to discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, age, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, disability, or gender. SWEC also reserves the right to refuse to post jobs that do not support the interests of the university.
Although SWEC works hard to verify the authenticity and/or legitimacy of the positions that are posted, we do not guarantee or take responsibility for (a) the truthfulness, accuracy, quality, safety, morality, desirability or legality of employer information and position listings, (b) the ability of employers to offer job opportunities, or (c) the hiring, recruiting or other practices of any employer. Students are urged to perform due diligence in researching employers when applying for or accepting private, off-campus employment.
