Job Posting Instructions
The SEO reviews all job postings. You will receive a confirmation email if/when the job is approved. At that time, the job will be visible to students.
Students will apply directly to you following the instructions you provide in the job posting.
The SEO is not involved in screening/choosing candidates, interviewing or hiring for jobs posted in the JLDP job database.
To edit or remove a job posting, please email .
Because the JLDP is federally-funded, the SEO is required to report certain employment statistics about students who are hired through the JLDP. The SEO does not report any specific information about the positions or the employers. However, SEO staff will contact all employers to determine if they have hired any Rutgers University students. The information required by the SEO is student's name, start date, hourly wage, and number of hours expected to work each week.
The SEO reserves the right to reject job postings that do not compliment and reinforce student educational programs or co-curricular goals, or that are not in compliance with federal or University Policy.
The following types of jobs are prohibited:
- Volunteer positions
- Employment opportunities that require an initial investment by students
- Employment opportunities that are commission-based with no hourly rate of pay
- Positions placed through a staffing/hiring agency
- Employment opportunities that occur at a private residence
- Employment opportunities that consist of payment for participation as a research subject.
Employers must have formal payroll systems in place. All students must be paid by check or direct deposit through traditional payroll systems.
Employers must issue appropriate documentation of students' annual wages to each student every calendar year, such as W-2 forms.
Students cannot work more than 20 hours per week during the academic year, which runs from September through May, and cannot work more than 40 hours per week during semester breaks.
Employers who do not follow the JLDP policies may be prohibited from posting jobs in the future.
