Parents can assist students in finding employment and academic balance and in succeeding in the workplace.
Ensure Student has the Necessary Documentation.
Please refer to our Required Paperwork for New Student Employees Checklist to see what documentation is needed to start working at Dartmouth.
The required documents must be the original copy. We cannot accept photocopies, pdfs, or faxes. Students must fill out this paperwork within three days of beginning employment.
This paperwork cannot be completed until the student has secured a job.
Explore Employment Opportunities
Encourage your student to explore employment opportunities while maintaining balance with their academics. Students work an average of eight to ten hours per week, however balance is the key, and individual work commitments will vary from student to student.
Talk to Your Student(s) About Their Work
By exploring career paths now, many students are able to identify future goals. While maintaining employment provides positive financial benefits, the experience also assists students as they explore the myriad of options ahead.
Parents may reach us at the Student Employment Office or by calling (603) 646-3641.
