What to do once hired/Onboarding
New Student Employee Onboarding
Welcome to Student Employment at Roosevelt University. Please only sign up for a New Student Employee Onboarding session after you have been hired for an on-campus job and if you have never worked at Roosevelt University before. All student employees must complete New Student Employee Onboarding before they can begin working. A work authorization email from the Office of Career Development will be sent to your Roosevelt email account and to your supervisor once you have completed New Student Employee Onboarding and are authorized to begin working. Once you have completed New Student Employee Onboarding, you do not need to schedule or attend another Onboarding session if you are rehired again or hired into another Student Employment position.
New Student Employee Onboarding provides new student employees key information about their on campus job, such as, how to report their worked hours, where to obtain paychecks, and reviewing various university employee policies.
Scheduling and Registering for New Student Employee Onboarding
As part of the University’s response to the impact of COVID-19, The Office of Career Development has transitioned into a virtual office. All appointments will be conducted via Zoom or by phone for the Fall 2020 semester, including New Student Employee Onboarding. The Office of Career Development will be physically closed to all visitors. If you are scheduled to meet with one of our staff for any type of appointment, you should be provided instructions prior to your appointment taking place which will inform you of how you will virtually meet with our staff.
To schedule your New Student Employee Onboarding Session, please log onto Roosevelt University’s EAB/Navigate Website. Once you have logged in, you’ll want to schedule an appointment with the Office of Career Development and the service you are looking to fulfill is “Onboarding” with Nick Wong at the Chicago campus (Please remember for Fall 2020, we are meeting with students virtually via Zoom). A list of available times should appear for you to select from. Once you’ve scheduled your meeting, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on what to expect and have prepared for New Student Employee Onboarding. If your schedule does not allow you to meet at any of the listed times, you may email email@example.com. Within your email, please list 3 to 5 different dates and times (E.g. Thursdays at 2:30pm) that you are available and we will do our best to accommodate and confirm on when we may meet with you.
If you have completed New Student Employee Onboarding before then you do not need to attend another session, even if you are being hired into a different office/department within the university. If you would like to make updates to existing tax withholding forms (W-4) or your direct deposit allocation, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
