We encourage all campus positions to be posted through either JOBNET or the Student Employment -TempJob Listserv.

I'm an international student. Can I apply for a non – Dartmouth job?
In almost every case, the answer to this question is "no". Students who are not in U.S. or U. S. Permanent Residence status should not accept employment without confirmation that their status in the United States allows work. Students on a Dartmouth sponsored F-1 or J-1 visa may only engage in on-campus employment with Dartmouth College as the employer, unless they have received separate work authorization from the Office of Visa and Immigration Services (OVIS) and US Citizenship & Immigration Service, and the work is in their field of study.
Can I apply for employment solicited through random e-mail?
SEO does not ever recommend that you respond to emails about off-campus employment that you did not personally solicit. Additionally, you should never share any personal information (i.e. social security number) with or send money to anyone you do not personally know. It is a good practice to investigate any company that offers you employment, by using the Better Business Bureau or asking which state the business is registered in. You can use the online look-up tool offered on the New Hampshire Secretary of State's Corporate Division website. The Federal Trade Commission website contains lots of helpful information you can use if trying to determine whether or not an 'opportunity' is really a scam.
Are there any other things I should know?
SEO acts only as a referral service and makes no particular recommendations regarding potential employers or employees. Neither Dartmouth College nor the Student Employment Office makes any representation or guarantee whatsoever about any positions listed through the SEO TempJobs listserv, nor does Dartmouth College or the Student Employment Office assume any responsibility for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of off – campus employment.
How do I advertise as an employer?
Non-Dartmouth employers who wish to list a position through our TempJobs Listserv should review the information we provide.
