JSU Student Employment Center

Welcome to the Jackson State University Student Employment Center

Employed, institution-wide, students are a vital part of Jackson State University’s workforce. The Student Employment Office provides learning opportunities for students by providing professional development through meaningful work experiences. Students work in positions covering an array of University functions, including research, administration, agricultural sciences, athletics, and tutoring. Student employment represents an important financial human resource to assist students to earn funds to offset the cost of their educations, while providing valuable work experience in a diverse array of work situations. Our goal is to provide students with a centralized information system of employment resources on and off campus, offer work experience that will enhance the student’s educational and occupational goals, and provide students an opportunity to gain valuable job experience. Ready to work? Let’s get started!
