New Employer Registration

The Student Employment Office in the Division of HROE welcomes employers both on- and off-campus to register for access to post local part-time employment opportunities on our 24-hour online database, Jobs for Aggies.
Posting positions with the Student Employment Office is an effective and efficient means of advertising part-time employment opportunities to the students of Texas A&M University. Employers must complete New Employer Registration online. Selecting either the “Register” of “Sign Up and Post Job” links will prompt the employer registration form, which is required to be filled out and submitted. A new account will be reviewed and activated within 48 hours. Employers are able to submit job descriptions for part-time positions prior to the employer account being activated only if they select “Sign Up and Post Job” as their registration method. No content will be visible to students until the approval process is completed. The database allows employers to enter data and information as they wish for it to appear online. After a job has been submitted, it is reviewed by the Student Employment Office before being posted for students to view to ensure compliance with equal employment opportunity standards and our internal posting criteria.

Why post student employee positions?

Although many employers may find it more convenient to hire a student employee that is the friend of a friend, employers are cheating themselves when they practice this. By posting student job opportunities in jobsforaggies.tamu.edu, employers are advertising to thousands of potential applicants. Employers receive a more qualified applicant pool and tap into resources they may not have tapped into before. Additionally, employers uphold the equal opportunity premise by posting positions for many to view.

Can a specific academic major be listed as a requirement?

Unless there is a genuine reason that an applicant be in a specific course of study, it is not recommended that employers list an academic major as a requirement. Employers have the ability to influence and challenge employees. It may be that students of an unrelated field of study have the talent and interest that employers seek. Course of study alone does not indicate ability.

Must a rate of pay be posted?

Yes. We do not allow employers to post commission-only jobs, or jobs that pay below minimum wage. Additionally, students do not want to apply for a job unless they know how much it will pay. If rate of pay depends on qualifications, a base rate can be posted. Applicants tend to look for positions with competitive rates of pay. Minimum wage jobs may not be nearly as attractive as those that pay more. 

Is it necessary to interview student employees?

Without an interview, it becomes virtually impossible to determine “fit”. Even though a student employee may have experience in a particular field or possess the skills to perform essential functions of the job, it is recommended that employers interview applicants before extending an offer for employment. In taking the time to make a more informed decision, employers will keep employees longer and find a better return on their investment.

What is an Internship?

An internship is a career-related work experience usually lasting one semester, often occurring during the summer. Internships should be a carefully monitored learning experience for the student - assignments appropriate to the student's educational level and related to their field of study are expected.

Note: If a student intern is seeking a for-credit internship, the employer and supervisor may have more responsibilities that are required for the student to receive academic credit. Please remember this when recruiting and hiring.          

Benefits of Internships

Some of the many benefits of providing internships for employers include:
  • Provide valuable experience for students that supports retention and degree completion
  • Possibility of hiring an intern with Work Study funding, reducing cost to department
  • Bring in fresh perspectives and increase productivity
  • Help develop student skill sets
  • Can market directly to learning community students in targeted academic programs

On-Campus Internship Program

Student engagement is a core area of investment for Texas A&M University. To meet this goal, Texas A&M is expanding its on-campus internship program to provide more students the opportunity to work with the university’s staff and faculty, and continue to attend classes. Participating students will be given meaning experiences through their internships that will help prepare them for their future careers.

The University has made an investment to help fund these experiences. If a hiring department can provide a quality on-campus learning experience that goes beyond the duties of a typical student employee position, can provide appropriate supervision, and pay 25% of the student intern’s wages, the University can provide the remaining wages using Federal Work Study or Texas College Work Study funds. To qualify for Work Study, students must meet all other Federal Work Study guidelines.

An internship is:
  • A meaningful work experience that is interest or major-related, and has a learning component.
  • A short-term experience, usually lasting one or two semesters.
  • Paid or compensated through course credit, scholarship, grant, or stipend.
For more information on when an internship meets the definition of an employee-employer relationship, thus being eligible for compensation and participation in the university benefits system, please see SAP 33.99.08.
