Student Employment and Payroll

Charmaine Giles '10 at Reunion

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

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. Services include helping students to identify on-campus job opportunities and helping on-campus employers advertise positions to students. Since students best know their interest, skills, and schedule, the SEO does not place students in job positions, but is a place to bring your campus job questions.

Another function of the Student Employment Office is to link employers with potential student employees. On-campus employers can contact the Student Employment Office if they need assistance in filling a student job. 

Student Employment Office is located in the basement of Parrish, room 28, just down from the Office of Student Engagement.

  • Tuesday 9:00-9:50 am and 1:15-4:15 pm
