Frequently Asked Questions
How can I apply for jobs?
Go to Workday and search “Jobs and Career Hub”, then select “Student Employment” and click on NU Find Student Jobs.
Why is my application automatically rejected?
Work-study jobs are only available to students who have been awarded work-study funding as part of their financial aid package. If an ineligible student applies to a work-study job, their application will be automatically rejected. If you are not eligible for work-study, you should use the filters to limit your job search to non-work-study jobs only.
Students may also be rejected from a job if they are not qualified, or if another candidate was more suitable for the position. Hiring managers make the final hiring decision.
Finally, applications from incoming students will be automatically rejected until after August 15. On August 15, incoming students become eligible for student employment.
If you believe your applications are being rejected in error, please contact us.
When can new students apply for jobs?
Most incoming students will have access to Workday on August 15. Please return in August to apply for Fall semester positions. If you still do not have access by August 15, we recommend double-checking that you have submitted all required documentation for enrollment in the University.
Thank you for your patience.
How can I view my paystubs?
How can I update my withholdings/tax elections?
The W-4 is defaulted to 0 withholdings for student employees at Northeastern, but you can make changes if you wish. Go to Workday and search “Withholding Elections” in the search bar. Select the ‘Update’ button to be brought to the menu where you can change the number of withholdings or exempt yourself from income tax (if you think the exemption is applicable).
