Job Search

Search For, Save, and Apply For Jobs



Searching for Local Jobs- Click on “On-campus” at the top of the Jobs tab. Or just search by the location of Iowa City. Additionally, you can click on “All Filters” and then “+More” and scroll down until you see “Labeled by Your School” and enter Student Employment. Keep in mind this will narrow down your search and there will be fewer listings. **Most on-campus jobs are posted in early January and early August!




Not Finding Opportunities that Interest You?- If you can't find the jobs/internships you are looking for, search for specific employer you are interested in (a specific sports team, art museum, accounting firm, etc.) and favorite those employers so when they do post, you will receive a notification.


Recommended Jobs & Employers- Favoriting jobs and employers will help the system recommend more of the types of positions that you are looking for.
