We welcome employers and community organizations to post internships, off campus part-time jobs, and full-time employment. There is no cost to post your position(s).

Note: For the protection of our students, we no longer post positions from individuals for work performed in a private residence. This includes nanny, babysitter, tutor, or companion work.

To submit an internship or job posting, click here.

The posting should include the following:

  • Position Title
  • Position Description
  • Pay (if any)
  • Skills needed or qualifications
  • Important dates (starting)
  • Required documents (resume, cover letter)
  • How to apply information and contact information

If you have any additional questions, you may email [email protected].

The Career Development Office reserves the right to approve any internship or job that does not support the interests of the university. We will not approve any jobs that appear to discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, veteran status, marital status, or mental or physical disability.

The University of Saint Joseph does not perform background checks on students applying for jobs. Therefore, employers are urged to request reference information from students to establish credentials and overall fit between the employer and job applicant.

Students who decide to accept off-campus employment must note that Financial Aid will not be affected by this decision. Additionally, an off-campus position does not count within the 19-hour limit that students can work at the university each week. For additional information regarding this disclaimer, please contact the USJ Career Development Office at 860.231.5893.
