Job Posting Guidelines

We post on-campus and off-campus jobs on our website. The jobs must be part time (35 hours or less per week) or temporary (e.g. yard worker, movers, etc.). They must pay hourly (not solely based on commission) and at least minimum wage, which is currently $11.50 for Washington State.

The job location must be in Whatcom or Skagit counties during the school year.

Full-time positions may be posted if the job is only during academic breaks (Winter break, Spring break and Summer break).

Jobs that appear to discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, age, national origin, disabled or Vietnam Era veteran status, sexual orientation, disability, gender, gender identity or expression, marital status, or genetic information are not eligible for posting to this website. The Student Employment Center reserves the right to refuse to post jobs that do not support the interests of the University.
