Announcement: On-Campus Student Employment

Career Services at SUNY Potsdam has moved its on-campus employment posting system from BearTracker to Handshake. Students will receive an invitation and will be advised that Handshake will be the platform where all on-campus employment will be advertised. Having one platform for posting opportunities to students allows for equity and ease of access to High Impact Practices, such as campus employment and internships. If you have questions related to this process, please contact career@potsdam.edu

Students: You will receive an invite to join Handshake in October. Positions will be share on our Facebook Page as Career Services becomes aware of them: Facebook Page

Faculty and Staff: Please read below for instructions on how to post student on-campus jobs in Handshake. Please be advised that BearTracker will not be available as of the end of the day on September 3, 2018, so you will need to complete the steps below before that date. 

  1. Click Here to be connected to the SUNY Potsdam On-Campus Employment company profile.
  2. Post Jobs
    • You'll notice we've pre-created divisions for each department/program
    • Start posting jobs - make sure you’re choosing only your division when you create the posting!
    • Set saved searches in the Jobs page to just show your division, so you aren’t seeing others’ applicants. 

Important Note for Federal Work Study: Keep in mind the following related to Federal Work Study Jobs

  • When posting jobs, please make sure you navigate to the “Basics” tab and select “yes” after “Work study Job?”
  • Students who are eligible are the only students who will see these jobs
  • Wait for Students to Apply – You will receive email notification when a student applies for a job posting
