Community Part-Time Hourly Employers
This page is dedicated to community employers who wish to advertise part-time hourly jobs on the University Jobnet system and hire University students for these positions through their own payroll. These community job opportunities are very important to students as they seek to maximize educational resources and minimize loan indebtedness.
Establishing Rate of Pay
The employer determines the hourly rate of pay based on job duties and qualifications and the current job market. A review of the most recent Part-Time Hourly (PDF) and Work-Study (PDF) Wage Surveys may be helpful in establishing the pay. The student's experience and background for the particular job should be used as criteria in setting the exact hourly wage. Iowa minimum wage is $7.25 effective January 1, 2008.
Posting Jobs on Jobnet
Jobnet is the University’s on-line advertisement system for posting student jobs. All job qualifications must be in accordance with the University of Iowa Non-Discrimination Statement. Select Advertise, View, and Update Listings to post a job. Job opportunities advertised on Jobnet must be part-time (30 hours per week or less) and paid by the hour.
Full-time and salary or commission jobs are not advertised on Jobnet. Exception: Jobs that are full-time for the summer only will be posted during the summer posting period. The employer's geographic location and the job location must be within 30 miles of Iowa City.
Jobnet is updated daily, Monday-Friday, with new jobs being reviewed and posted within two business days. Jobs are posted for one month. Employers should call 335-1460 or email email@example.com to remove the job if it is filled before the month. Employers may also request that the job continue to be posted if it is not filled within the month.
