Student Employment Services hosts 3 special events each year. In the fall, we host a Student Job Fair where students can meet and talk to campus employers as well as off-campus businesses in the area. Each April, we host National Student Employment Week at JHU which is a celebration of the thousands of students who work throughout the university. In the spring, we host the annual Student Employment Awards Ceremony where we name the JHU Student Employee & Supervisor of the Year. Winners go on to a regional then national competition.
Throughout the year, we also take part in special events sponsored by other departments such as Orientation, Multicultural Affairs, Center for Student Success, and others. To learn more about these exciting events, see below.
This weeklong celebration honors the tens of thousands of students nationwide who work while attending college. Here at Johns Hopkins, we have nearly 4000 students who work in departments and labs throughout the university.
All departments are encouraged to participate. Here’s a list of ideas on ways to celebrate National Student Employment Week in your department.

Student Employment Services takes great pride in helping to prepare tomorrows leaders by providing our students with part-time work experiences that fosters leadership development and allows for the integration of classroom learning with the work experience.
Nearly 4000 JHU students work on-campus each year, without whom, the university could not fulfill its mission. The award ceremony provides us the opportunity recognize and honor these outstanding students as well as the faculty and staff who supervise them.
The annual Student Employment Awards Ceremony takes place each April in conjunction with National Student Employment Week. All nominees, their co-workers, and the person/s who nominated them are invited to attend. Winners are announced and go on to compete in the regional then national competition. Cash prizes and awards are conferred along the way.
The student job fair is held each September during the second week of classes. It offers Homewood students the opportunity to meet perspective employers, both on-campus and off. Student can also learn about completing the I-9 Form, which is something that you must complete if they plan to work on-campus.
Departments from the Homewood campus, JH Medical Campus, and others are on hand to meet and talk with students about job openings.
Many employers conduct interviews on-the-spot, so come prepared. Below are some tips to help you be ready:
- Dress is Business Casual
- Bring 10 copies of your JHU Student Job Application
- If you have a resume, bring at least 10 copies
- Bring your class schedule so that you know ‘exactly’ when you are available to work
- If you have work-study, plan to stop by the Student Financial Services booth
Note: Work-study is NOT required for campus employment. As a matter of fact, the majority of students who work on-campus do NOT have work-study.
