Student Employment Workshop

All first-time student employment applicants are required to complete the Student Employment Workshop which explains all the important steps in the application process, your responsibilities as a student employee, and compensation.

If you previously held a student employment position at NSU and you have completed the Student Employment Workshop on or after July  1, 2014, you DO NOT need to complete another Student Employment Workshop. If you would like to apply for other positions, log in to SharkLink and apply for additional positions through JobX.

New Students: In addition, new students must be enrolled for classes for the first semester during which they wish to work in order to register for the Workshop. Registration for the Workshop will open as follows:

Fall July 1
