Find a Part-Time Job On or Off Campus in 4 Easy Steps

Step 1: Develop a Resume for a Part-Time Job

Most positions posted in Hilltop Careers, especially part-time on-campus jobs, will require you to submit a resume. We recommend you upload a resume to your profile before searching for positions. Whether you apply for an on-campus or off-campus job you will always need a current resume.

Refer to our Resume Guide and video for tips on creating a resume.

Step 2: Login to Your Hilltop Careers Account

Login to your Hilltop Careers account, set up your profile, upload your resume, and begin viewing part-time job postings. We strongly encourage you to read these instructions on setting up your account, creating a profile, and uploading your documents before logging into Hilltop Careers for the first time. 

All current students already have an account in Hilltop Careers. Incoming students that have indicated their intent to attend St. Edward’s University and have paid their deposit fee, also already have an account. As explained in these instructions, please click St. Edward's University Sign On when you visit Hilltop Careers. If you have trouble logging in, call 512.448.8530. 

Step 3: Must Have Required Documentation for Employment

Please read the REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION information for working on-campus or off-campus.

Required Documentation to Work On-Campus

Remember that work-study positions are typically posted on line beginning on July 1st.

New students working on campus for the first time must show proof of their identity and eligibility to work in the United States.  If you already have a job offer to work on-campus, you can save yourself time and paperwork by completing an I-9 form during orientation in the Student Financial Services office (Main Building 204). To complete your I-9 form you will need to present documentation that verifies your citizenship status and eligibility to work in the US. 

Please click here to read I-9 instructions. Further details can be found at I-9 Central.

Note: Original documentation required (no copies of documents are accepted) and documentation must be unexpired
