Hire an Employee on JobX

Please note, all hire requests need to be validated by a Swarthmore College administrator.
If a student is not eligible to be hired because requisite information or documentation is missing, the hire request may be prevented. In this case, please reach out to Kristin Moore, Director of Services, Financial Aid,, 610-328-8392, for assistance.
