Hiring Students (St. Petersburg)

Many campus offices hire student employees to do a variety of jobs. These roles help students to build their skills and prepare for future career success. Over 75% of new students at USF plan to work during their college experience, and over 50% plan to pay for educational expenses through on or off campus employment. 


USF St. Petersburg campus departments interested in hiring student employees should complete the student employment supervisor/processor training annually via Canvas.
