Student Employment

The Student Employment Office (SEO) was created to provide a “one stop resource” for Delaware State University students concerning all matters of student employment on the campus of DSU.  We are dedicated to helping students locate jobs on campus and ensuring that students maximize the value of their employment experiences. We believe that having an on campus job helps students become more involved with DSU community, provides valuable work experience, and helps build transferable skills and habits that will benefit future career options. 

The Student Employment Office, an integral part of the Office of Career Services, is based on a philosophy of providing valuable work experience for degree-seeking students through the performance of jobs on or off campus and providing employment venues that assist with financial support to the student’s academic studies. Student employment on or off campus gives students the opportunity for practical experience in the world of work comparable to emerging occupations. Practical work offers knowledge, skills, and abilities attractive to future employers and complements their academic credentials. Financial assistance in the form of on and off campus work should be responsive to the student’s class hours and schedule. However, a student’s financial need should not override relative merit and qualifications when departments make hiring decisions.

For the 2016-2017 School Year, students must attend a one (1) Student Employment Orientation and both Fall and Spring career fairs to remain eligible to work on campus at DSU. Fall Career Fair, Thursday, October 27, 2016 and Spring Career Fair, Tuesday, March 23, 2017.
