For University Employers

For many years the student employment programs have helped to meet our students' educational and financial needs, while strengthening and supporting our campus departments. Many university departments rely on student workers to lend vital support to the successful day-to-day operations of UMass Lowell. Our Student Employment Office (SEO) collaborates with all departments, employers, community partners, and students, in order to provide a safe and enjoyable work experience for all.

Looking to hire student workers? Our newly upgraded JobHawk system is available to better assist you with your student staffing needs. JobHawk allows you to quickly and easily post your available jobs. Additionally, the site allows you the flexibility to review applications/resumes, contact applicants directly to set up interviews, and hire suitable candidates.

There are many resources available to help you effectively hire and manage student employees as well as navigate the JobHawk system:

The University Student Employee Wage Structure (pdf) is to be used as a guideline when posting open positions.


In July / August, the SEO offers several options for you to learn best practices for hiring/managing your student employees. These options include scheduled supervisor presentations & a live supervisor webinar. Please note: Supervisors must participate in one annual training in order to hire student employees.
