What do I do once I've determined my eligibility?

If you are eligible for student employment, you may view the open positions and begin contacting hiring supervisors. If you are hired, you will receive an email from student employment with further instructions on completing the new hire process.

If I worked last quarter, do I still need to obtain an eligibility and verification form for this quarter?

No, you are not required to resubmit forms quarterly unless you are changing or adding a position. Students' supervisors will notify student workers if they are no longer eligible to work.
