Short-term, short-notice work

Description: If you are available for short-term, short-notice work, then Human Resources would like to speak with you.

Periodically, departments on campus have large projects that require extra help, either because the project comes in at the last minute or because it is a busy time of year and they need an extra person. While these projects will not turn into a part-time job, or last long, Human Resources would like to have a list of available workers on hand for the departments to contact. Students who are interested can sign up in Human Resources and be notified via email when a department has a job starting in a day or two and lasting no more than two weeks.

1) Sign up for the email list (and complete required paperwork) in Human Resources.

2) Check your email and respond to opportunities you’re interested in/available for/qualified to do.

3) Departments will fill their needs on a first-come, first-serve basis.

4) Jobs will start with little notice and last for no more than two weeks at a time.

This will not be a placement list, so signing up for this service will not find you a regular student job on campus. This is only an opportunity to be available for work here and there, on a very short-term basis. You must be registered for classes at Southern to be on this list.

Contact Info: Stop by Human Resources to sign up
