On-Campus Student Employers 

Student employees are essential for the operation and success of the University of Missouri. We strive to provide access to positions, create meaningful experiences, and identify opportunities for consistency.   

Handshake: Posting Non-Work-Study Jobs 

Faculty and staff are encouraged to work with their HR contacts to post part-time student positions on Handshake, the online employment website for students.
