The Student Employment Office maintains an online system called JobLink to connect you with employers on campus. Through JobLink, you will find the following information:

  • How to search for open jobs on campus
  • How to apply for a job
  • How to confirm if you have an I-9 on file in the Student Employment Office
  • Student Employment Handbook

Please note that all incoming first-year and transfer students will not have access to JobLink until two weeks before the start of the semester.


JobLink Tutorials

  1. Log in to Blackboard: https://learn.rochester.edu
  2. Click on the tab for Services, followed by the subtab Jobs and Internships.
  3. On the Jobs page you will find the link to log into JobLink.
  4. If you’re a first-time user, you will need to confirm your profile.

  1. Hover over My Account and click My Profile.

Notes:

  • Your profile functions as your job application. Keep it updated.
  • Some fields cannot be updated because they are pre-populated by the Student Employment Office.
  • The Additional Information section allows you to remove your profile from employer searches. This way, employers will not be able to see your information if they are seeking candidates. However, if you specifically apply for a job, they will still be able to access your profile.

  1. Click Job Search at the top.
  2. Once you’ve found something that interests you, you can save the search (this allows you to easily run the same search in the future).
  3. You can also create a job agent (this feature will email you if a job is posted that matches your criteria) by clicking Email Me New Jobs. To access job agents, hover over My Account and click My Activity.

  1. Click the job title and then Apply For Job.
  2. Review your profile and complete a cover letter if desired, then click Save.
  3. To view jobs you’ve applied for, hover over My Account, click My Activity, and click the Referrals tab.
  4. JobLink allows students to upload multiple resumes, cover letters, and other application materials. Remember it is best to submit a resume that speaks to the job you are applying for.
