Career Services helps students find part-time work, summer, seasonal jobs, and internships.

Approximately 20,000 students are employed by MSU on campus each year in academic departments, research and support centers and residence and dining halls. Students may pursue a wide range of positions, including clerical, technical, research assistance, project management and service roles. Local, off campus employers also have a variety of part-time, seasonal and internship positions. Jobs and internships can be found by going to the MySpartanCareer (http://careernetwork.msu.edu/services-locations/myspartancareer.html) job posting system. Once you set up your profile and upload your resume in MySpartanCareer, click on the Jobs/View Jobs tab to see all current job postings. You’ll want to focus your search by selecting filters like position type (e.g., work study, part-time, internship, etc.). Look for on-campus jobs by searching for the Keyword “MSU” (and don’t select any other filters). Each job listing will contain a description of the position and contact information. If you get stuck or need help getting started, career advisors in the Career Services office in room 113 of the Student Services Building can assist you with your search for part time work and internships.

While Career Services helps students find jobs, MSU Student Employment in Human Resources manages the on-campus hiring process and all MSU student employee records. MSU Student Employment also develops policies and procedures for MSU student employees and acts as a liaison between student employees and campus hiring units.

Work Study: Positions that require a work study award are indicated in both MSU and off-campus listings. Work study awards are a form of financial aid and students must qualify by applying through the Office of Financial Aid.
