Applying for Jobs | University of Portland

Applying for Jobs

Students must search and apply for jobs at the University of Portland; they are not assigned to specific positions. This gives each student the flexibility to find the type of position that best fits their interests, experience and class schedule each semester. 

Application Materials

All student positions on campus will require students to submit at least a resume and cover letter to complete their job application. Students are encouraged to begin working on their resume and cover letter ahead of time. See the Career Center's Handouts and Resources page for help with your application materials. Pay close attention to the job posting for specific questions, materials or requirements to be included in the application process. For example, a job posting may request answers to specific questions be included in your cover letter.

Student Job Board

All student employment job openings are listed online through the Student Employment Job Board.

Students will need to create an Applicant Profile in HireTouch using their UP username and password. The first time a student applies for a position, they will need to click on the Create an Account link on the applicant login page. For help with the account creation process, please use our Help Sheet - Creating My Applicant Profile.

Once a profile has been created, a student can apply to any position for which they meet the minimum qualifications. A student should make sure they have a strong resume and cover letter ready to submit during the online application process. If you need help with the job application process, please refer to our Help Sheet - Applying for Jobs

After the application process, the student should receive communication as to whether they will be moving forward with an interview and the hiring process or if another qualified candidate was found.
