Jobs For Grads
Graduate students are eligible to work on-campus while enrolled at Rutgers. The work does not need to be related to your field of study. However, international graduate students must maintain legal F-1 or J-1 status while engaging in on-campus employment. J-1 students sponsored by Rutgers University should complete the On-Campus Employment Authorization form to obtain approval from the Rutgers Global – International Student & Scholars Office.
WHAT IS AN ON-CAMPUS JOB?
- On-campus employment includes work done as a teaching or research assistant as well as jobs in the university library, residence halls, dining facilities, laboratories, and administrative offices.
- On-campus employment must either be performed on the school’s premises (including on-location commercial firms that provide services for students on campus, such as the school bookstore/cafeteria) or at an educationally off-campus location affiliated with Rutgers. Employment with on-site commercial firms, such as a construction company building a school building, that do not provide direct student services is not deemed on-campus employment.
- Rutgers Global-International Students & Scholars office provides on-campus employment workshops for international graduate students
TIPS FOR GETTING AN ON-CAMPUS JOB
- There is no central hiring office for student jobs. You must visit each individual office and ask for information there. Be sure to ask about application deadlines or any required meetings.
- Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the job and the time commitment.
- Have confidence – Approach academic departments to inquire about current openings.
