Student Financial Services has joined together with Career Services to make it easier for students to find jobs on campus through Handshake.
Handshake is an online career management platform for Murray State students and alumni. Handshake provides access to job postings, career-related events, virtual career fairs, and more.
Students and alumni have two ways they can access the Handshake platform. The first option is by logging into myGate and finding the Handshake link in the “Career Services” box located on the “Home” tab. The second is by visiting the Career Service page. Please note that you do not have to sign in to preview positions on the Career Service page but you will have to log in to apply.
For any questions regarding Handshake, please contact Murray State University Career Services at email@example.com or 270-809-3735.
Student employment is a program which allows students to work part time to earn money while in school. The hourly rate of pay is minimum wage ($7.25 per hour) for most positions and greater for some positions. It is the student's responsibility to seek out, apply to, and secure a position - the financial aid department cannot do this on the student's behalf.
Earnings will never be automatically applied toward a student's account. Payment will either be applied to a student's bank account via direct deposit (if set up by the student) or a paper check will be mailed to the address we have on file for the student. All Federal and University student employees are paid bi-weekly. Graduate Assistants are paid monthly.
On-campus employment through any of these programs is not guaranteed. All student employees are required to perform their duties in a satisfactory manner. They are to follow their work schedule diligently and they should be prompt and regular in attendance. Departments arrange the job to accommodate the student's class schedule.
Student and Graduate Assistantship employment is at will and may be terminated at any time without cause.
