Student Employment at Swarthmore

Charmaine Giles '10 at Reunion

Student employment at Swarthmore College is overseen by two offices: the Student Employment Office and the Student Payroll Office.

New student employees, be sure you bring all required forms to campus in order to be able to apply to positions!

Student Employment Office (SEO)

The Student Employment Office (SEO) helps to connect the more than 1,200 students who work while at Swarthmore with on-campus employment opportunities. SEO does not directly place students in jobs, but rather help them identify on-campus job opportunities that are the right fit for their skills, interests, and availability. We also work with on-campus employers to help them advertise open positions to students, and welcome them to contact the Student Employment Office if they need assistance in filling a student job.

Student Employment Office Location:

SEO is located in the basement of Parrish Hall, in room 28.

Student Payroll Office (SPO)

The Student Payroll Office collects all required employment paperwork (I-9, Direct Deposit form, etc.) and provides information and training on how to be paid for student campus employment. They also assist employers by providing information on hiring student workers, salary administration, electronic timekeeping, and pay dates. We encourage you to visit the Student Payroll Office website for more information and resources for both students employees and on-campus employers.
