The Student Employment Center (SEC) processes the paperwork for all student employees working on campus. There are two different processes for students to submit, New Hire or Rehire.
A “New Hire” is a student employee who has either not worked for Cabrillo before or has not worked at Cabrillo in the last three years. Once the supervisor has made the hiring decision, the student employee must fill out section 1 of the “” and email a PDF version to their supervisor to complete Section 2.
- Supervisors email a PDF of the “Student Assistant Assignment Form ” to firstname.lastname@example.org and in the Subject: New Hire: Student Name. Be sure it’s signed by your dean/admin and includes a budget number.
- Once the form has been sent, the SEO will reach out to the student and send them the instructions and form for fingerprinting. All new Student Assistants must be fingerprinted and cleared prior to starting employment. At this point we’re working with an off campus vendor to facilitate the process. Note: Students will not have to pay for the process.
- The student will also receive an email from NEOGOV in order to complete
the rest of the hiring packet. All of these forms should be completed through NEOGOV and not sent to the SEO. We will also collect the appropriate I-9 documentation.
