Searching and Applying for Jobs
Search and apply for jobs on the Jobs at St Thomas website.
Applying for Jobs:
- To apply for jobs, you will be required to create a profile and upload a resume to complete your profile.
- The resume you upload will be associated with ALL positions for which you apply.
- DO NOT upload a cover letter. All uploaded documents are applied to ALL positions to which you apply. Once uploaded, the document cannot be removed, only replaced.
- When you apply to a job, as part of the application you will have the opportunity to provide a cover letter specific to the position.
Student Employment Application
- Complete all required fields.
- Although not required, please provide your Student ID#. This helps hiring officials to determine eligibility.
- You will be required to copy/paste a job-specific cover letter into the application.
Candidate Application EEO (Equal Employment Opportunity) Information Form
- This form is voluntary, however, you must click “Submit” in order to submit your application, even if you decide not to provide the EEO information.
- Once this form is submitted, you will be directed to a page that includes the job summary and a confirmation message highlighted in green, indicating the successful submission of your application.
Job Search Tips:
- Visit the Career Development Center. They can help you create a resume and cover letter. They can also help you identify any gaps you may have in your experience and how to address them or determine other types of experience you can include (ex. volunteering, class projects, student organizations, etc.) to showcase your skills. Knowing how to develop a strong resume that showcases your experience and strengths is a skill you will need your entire life!
- Apply to multiple job postings. The job search can be a competitive process and many postings have only one opening available.
- Check back often. Departments continue to post jobs throughout the year. If you don’t find something you like, continue to check the website for new opportunities.
- Network. If you are interested in working in a particular department, inquire if they are hiring. Leave a copy of your resume so they have your name and contact information if a position opens up.
- Informational Interview: Talk to a student that is currently working in an area or position that interests you. Ask them about the position and what skills they believe to be important in order to be successful in the role. This information can be useful when writing your resume and cover letter or preparing for your interview.
