Guidelines and Safety Measures
If you plan to pursue a local job, please follow the College’s guidelines below for assessing the integrity of the position and accepting employment. Mount Holyoke is not responsible for safety or other aspects of off-campus employment.
- Research the organization or individual to whom you are applying.
- Use caution and common sense when applying for any position off-campus. Don’t put yourself in a vulnerable situation. For example, you should not go alone to any residential address to apply for a job. If you feel uncomfortable, do not pursue the position further and contact the Student Employment Office.
- If a job is offered by an individual, ask for references and the name of the last person to work for her/him.
- Make sure that you and your employer have agreed upon the rate of pay, the hours required and the job requirements before you begin work. If you are unsure about any of these, ask the employer to put them in writing.
- Be sure to discuss how and when you will be paid before you begin work.
