Earn while you learn: jobs and research opportunities

Welcome to the Harvard Student Employment Office!

As part of the Financial Aid Office, the Student Employment Office (SEO) is a resource for job-seeking students.  The SEO maintains an online jobs database, JobX, accessible to all enrolled Harvard graduate & undergraduate students, as well as, degree-seeking candidates at the School of Continuing Education.  All students have access through their HUID and PIN and can search and apply for jobs, subscribe to JobMail, and post a resume through the site. 

The best way for prospective employers to reach Harvard students is through the jobs database where you can review student resumes, post and manage your job posting, customize a job application, and track student applicants. Both on-campus and off-campus employers may request a login and password to gain access to the SEO jobs database.  Simply follow the link to JobX.

The SEO works with faculty, the community, and all University departments to create employment and research opportunities for students. We administer the Federal Work Study Program (FWSP), a federally funded program which can provide the employer with a subsidy of between 50-90% of a student’s hourly wages.

We also provide students with funding to pursue their own academic interests outside of the classroom. Read more in the Research Programs section of our website.
