Jobs On Campus: Finding One

How do I get a job at Biola?

On-campus employment is handled by the Biola University Student Employment Office, located in Metzger Hall upper floor.

  1. Determine your class schedule for the semester and the hours you are available to work.
  2. Review the list of jobs available, online at
  3. If you wish, meet with Student Employment Office staff for help in identifying positions that will best match your skills, interests and time frame.
  4. Fill out an application for the jobs that interest you. A link to the standard student-worker application is available at the bottom of every job posting in Classifieds. Not every position uses the standard application, however; be sure to read the job description carefully and follow their instructions.
  5. Deliver your application to the department that is hiring.
  6. If the department is interested, they will contact you for an interview; again, some departments have different processes so you should read the department's information carefully.

If you’re hired, you must fill these out before you start work:

  1. Student Hiring Authorization Form (signed by your supervisor)
  2. W-4 Federal Government form
  3. An I-9 employment verification form that satisfies federal immigration requirements. All hires are required to complete the form.
  4. When turning in these forms to the Student Employment Office, also bring proof of eligibility to work (Social Security card, valid Driver's License, passport, or visa documentation).
  5. International students (F-1 visa) must bring their I-20, passport, visa, and Social Security card.

Once these form have been completed, the Student Employment Office will issue you a golden slip that you will need to take to your supervisor. This golden slip will be proof that you have finished your hiring paperwork and are ready to start work.
