Hire a UWGB Student


Handshake is UW-Green Bay's preferred method for advertising job openings to students. The Help Center for Employers addresses many aspects of using the system, including: account creation, posting jobs and reviewing applications. The Student Employment Office (920-465-2556 or studentemployment@uwgb.edu) reviews part-time and seasonal opportunities for current students; Career Services (920-465-2163 or careers@uwgb.edu) reviews internships and jobs that require a degree or certification.

On Campus 

Human Resources & Workforce Diversity (920-465-2390 or hr@uwgb.edu) processes student job appointments. Submit All employment forms as soon as possible and prior to the student performing work. Late, incomplete or inaccurate paperwork may delay creation of a student appointment and pay.

No additional paperwork is required to hire a student through the Federal Work Study program. Hourly positions automatically draw from any available work study funding unless the supervisor requests otherwise. The supervisor and student are responsible for monitoring award balances.

UW-Green Bay does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, or other factors prohibited by law in any of its educational programs, activities, admissions or employment policies.

Off Campus Work Study

Please contact the Student Employment Coordinator (920-465-2556 or studentemployment@uwgb.edu) if you are interested in a partnership or need assistance hiring a UW-Green Bay student through the Federal Work Study program.

Due to the need for periodic site visits, off-campus work study partnerships will generally be limited to nonprofit community service agencies within a 20 mile radius of the main campus; 10 miles of the additional campuses in Manitowoc, Marinette and Sheboygan; or 5 miles of a major roadway (e.g., I-43 or US 41) connecting the locations. Exceptions to this policy may be made at the discretion of the Director if an extenuating need or circumstance exists.

Regular Off Campus Employment

Follow your organization's HR policies when hiring a UWGB student. We do ask that you provide The Student Employment Office with the following information of any UWGB student hired: name, start date, wage rate, approximate hours/per week, and the number of weeks the student is expected to work in this fiscal year (July-June). If you posted your position in Handshake, the Student Employment Office may contact you via email or phone to gather this information. You may also report hires in Handshake or send details directly to the Student Employment Office (studentemployment@uwgb.edu).
