HIRE A STUDENT FAQ PAGE

FOR STUDENTS

Are there any restrictions on who can apply for a job through www.hireastudent.net

No. While this is a job board targeting students living west of Greater Boston, this is a free country so literally anyone, including grandmothers from the country of Spain, can apply for a job posted on this website.

Does www.hireastudent.net screen employers? 

No we do not screen employers. If you are a student please be sure to do your own research on an employer before applying for a job.

What is the definition of an employer? 

Thank you for asking. There is no such thing as a dumb question. An employer is the person or organization that hires you and gives you a paycheck. When we say organization we are referring to the legal company, partnership, non-for-profit, sole proprietorship or other organization that needs employees.

Can I post my resume on www.hireastudent.net for any and all employers to consider? 

No but we will add that functionality within the next few months but only for students 18 years old or older.

FOR EMPLOYERS

Do I have to be a business to post a job on www.hireastudent.net

Of course not. You can post a job for a volunteer for a political organization, babysitter at a private residence or for an administrative assistant at a professional partnership on this website. The only caveat is that the post be for a real job that a student would put on his/her resume.

Must I post a salary or pay rate per hour on my job post? 

No but it is strongly recommended. If you are unsure of how much to pay we recommend you offer a range of pay and add the caveat “based on experience.”

Can I extend my job post if I am unable to find a student? 

No but you may of course submit a new posting. For employers who are always seeking new employees we recommend you purchase either our silver or gold package.

What do I do when I fill the job? 

It’s simple. Log in to your account and select the job then note that it is filled. The job posting will be taken down instantly. In such circumstances don’t forget to come back later to start analyzing your data (average # of applications, time to fill etc.) from your dashboard.
