Fitchburg State University is launching a new website that will connect local businesses looking for part-time help with the university’s educated and motivated students.
The service will be free for students as well as businesses, and local employers are invited to submit their open positions by visiting studentjobs.fitchburgstate.edu and creating their free profiles.
University President Richard S. Lapidus said the jobs portal has been in the works for several months.
“Many of our students balance their studies with part-time jobs, and we’ve found that a large number of them go home on the weekends to work,” Lapidus said. “We wanted to create a resource that would let them earn money while still taking part in the fullness of campus life. The portal will also give local businesses the opportunity to benefit from our talented and hard-working students.”
At studentjobs.fitchburgstate.edu, businesses may submit their part-time job openings for review by the university. Once posted, students can search for jobs or upload their own information for businesses to review.
Employers interested in the jobs portal should contact Director of Career & Advising Centers Erin Kelleher at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-665-3151.
