All on-campus job listings are now listed in Handshake. To create a new position listing, log in to your Handshake account, go to “Jobs” on the main menu, and select ‘New Job” from the upper right hand menu to begin the process of entering the job information. Students can receive an application at the Center for Career and Professional Development and interested candidates may apply directly to the department. Please notify us once the position is filled, so that we can remove the listing.
Mention the length of time that you have been associated with the candidate and in what capacity. Discuss the candidate’s potential and highlight the candidate’s positive characteristics. Give specific examples, if possible, of his/her best work.
The Center for Career and Professional Development offers a credentials file service which holds confidential and non-confidential letters of recommendation for students and alumni. The letters are kept for forwarding to potential employers or to graduate or professional schools. This system allows you to write one letter per student and the Center for Career and Professional Development will send it to numerous employers, at the student’s request. Please suggest that your students activate such a file.
Students can be paid to work under one or more of four programs:
Students must complete a free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which may be obtained in community libraries, high school guidance offices, or at Adelphi’s Office of Student Financial Services (Levermore Hall, lower level). You may also file the FAFSA online, and by doing so you will receive results faster than using the paper FAFSA.
Students who do not receive federal work-study as a part of their financial aid package may ask a financial aid counselor to review their financial aid package once they decide they want to work on campus. Students who do not receive work-study may be able to find a campus employment position or graduate student employment.
Yes they can! International students cannot receive federal work-study, and many of our international students have a visa that restricts the time they can work off campus, so the only practical jobs for them are on-campus through campus employment or graduate student employment.
Yes, even if they are part-time, graduate students can work under campus employment or graduate student employment. They may also apply for federal work-study by filing a FAFSA form.

The department may transfer funds from an operating budget or can request campus employment funds from the person in charge of the budget for that area or department. Campus employment is one of the best ways for students to feel connected on campus and aids retention. If you believe that you have meaningful work for a student in your department, but you are not sure how to fund it, please contact our director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
