Local Employers may post part-time job opportunities on our website for FREE through the JMU Off-Campus Part-Time Job Program.

In order to assist our students with finding part-time job opportunities to support the growing cost of tuition, Student Employment posts off-campus part-time jobs on our Job Announcement Website. This is a free service for local businesses in the Harrisonburg Community and surrounding areas. Students will view the positions on the Off-Campus Job Announcement Website and contact you directly. We do not place students in jobs! Please review the following information before you post a part-time position.

If you are seeking JMU graduates for full-time employment or internships, please visit the University Career Center department.

To post a position, follow these easy steps:
  1. Fill out the Job Posting Form to post your opportunity on the Off Campus Job Announcement Website
  2. Hire JMU students
  3. Fill out this Remove Job Form to remove your job posting from the Off Campus Job Announcement Website or the position will automatically be removed after 4 weeks.

What we'll require from you:
  • Number of student's hired
  • Start date
  • Pay rate
  • The approximate number of hours per week the student works
  • Referral Source:  Please indicate how you heard about our job posting service or a name of the person and/or employer if you're referred by someone.

The Student Work Experience Center will follow-up with anyone desiring to post any childcare, babysitting, or personal assistant or related position before a decision is made whether or not to post the position on our job posting site. 

We do not post the following types of positions

  • Full-time positions
    *There is an exception during Winter and Summer school breaks*
  • Positions that require a college degree
  • Positions that require an initial investment
  • Positions that are payed solely through commission

    **Please note that the Student Employment website only posts part-time jobs. If you are interested in posting a full-time job or internship outside the Harrisonburg/Rockingham County area, then please visit the University Career Center's website
