Hiring Managers

Employing Students 101

The University of Dayton is committed to employing students — and making the process as simple as possible for supervisors like you.

The hiring process begins when you post an available position in Handshake. Once your position has been reviewed and approved, you will be able to review students' resumes online. Before your chosen student(s) can begin work, they must complete required paperwork. This paperwork is different for domestic and international students.  If you do not have a user account within Handshake, you can email for instructions on how to get started. A Supervisor Handbook is also available to provide you with assistance. 

To terminate student employees, please use the Report a Student Termination Google Form under Related Links. Personnel Action Forms (PAF's) should be used for pay increases. Also if a student performs a one-time job over a one-day period, then a PAF can be completed for a one-time check. However, the student MUST have a Form I-9 and tax forms on file with Student Employment before performing the one-time job. If a job will be performed over a period of several days, then the position must be posted as it does not qualify for a one-time check.  

Paper time sheets for students should only be used when a student has missed the deadline to submit time through Porches.
