How can I get a job?

Many Bowdoin students take part-time jobs on campus, and most find that it enriches their College experience, helps them to manage their time, and provides an important source of income for incidental expenses. The Student Employment Office (SEO) runs the First-Year Job Placement Program and can provide you with a job upon your arrival at Bowdoin (eliminating the hassle of having to conduct a job search). Visit the Student Employment website, or contact seo@bowdoin.edu or 207-725-3386 for more information. Be sure to bring with you to campus appropriate documentation to complete your mandatory Federal and State employment paperwork. Information about the documents to bring can be found at: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-9.pdf (see page 4). You will not be allowed to work without completing your employment forms through the SEO. If you would rather wait until you arrive on campus, you can search for available jobs and apply online via the SEO website.
