How do I review applications?

Employers can choose to have application notifications emailed directly to them. All applications can be reviewed once the employer is logged in through the dashboard on the hireBING website.

How do I take down a job listing that has been filled?

When a job is posted, an expiration date may be added. Once this expiration date is reached, the posting will no longer be available. An employer may expire the job at any time, or have someone at the Fleishman Center expire the job for them.

Who will be applying for the jobs I post?

Depending on your specifications, any undergraduate or graduate student can apply. Refer to types of positions regarding specifics.

How many hours can we employee a student?

This is dependent on the type of position you are hiring for. In general:

  • Graduate and undergraduate Federal Work-Study: Determined by the amount awarded (No more than 40 hours/week)
  • Student Assistant (graduate or undergraduate): 29 hours/week, combined across all assignments
  • On-campus, part-time job: Refer to specific organizations regarding hours
  • Graduate Assistant: 20 hours/week
  • International students (despite the type of position): 20 hours/week
  • Research Assistant: 20-29 hours/week

What is the expected pay rate?

This is also dependent on the type of position for which you are hiring. The pay rate for student employees is based on the individual student’s experience and the level of skill required for each position. Pay rates for all SUNY campuses are based on on an established pay scale starting at the New York state minimum wage. The typical pay rate for most student employees will range between $10.40 and $15 per hour.

Students who are hired for Federal Work-Study receive 100 percent compensation from their financial aid package. In other words, if you hire a work-study student, your department will not have to pay the student out of the departmental budget.

Student Assistants and Federal Work-Study students can be paid a minimum of $10.40 per hour and a maximum of $21.89 per hour.

How should I evaluate my student staff?

Student employment supervisors also have a unique opportunity to play a critical role in supporting students in their success by offering a venue to develop professional skills that may not be part of their individual classroom curriculum. The Student Employment Team has developed an evaluation form to help supervisors of student employees identify and assess career-readiness skills the students’ progress toward developing these competencies. We ask that the students be evaluated by their supervisor at least once at the end of each semester. Download the student staff evaluation form and learn more

Hiring international students

Binghamton University enrolls more than 2,500 international students on non-immigrant visas; these students are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents. International students, who usually spend two years or more in the U.S., often demonstrate the initiative, flexibility and experience to adapt to new situations. Their outstanding Binghamton University education and their multilingual abilities make them a special asset to U.S. employers. They stand to gain from the employment they receive from you, but in return, your organization benefits greatly from their unique skills, global perspective and new approaches to challenges.

Given the complexity of federal laws governing the employment of non-U.S. citizens, employers may be uncertain about hiring someone who is not a U.S. citizen, intending citizen or permanent resident. However, federal regulations do permit the employment, within certain limits, of international students in F-1 and J-1 status.

International students are limited per U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regulations to working no more than 20 hours per week while classes are in session.
