For employment that is non-need based (not part of work-study programs).

Centralia College Student Job Center retains the right to refuse any employer or any job posting by any organization. SJC makes no particular recommendations regarding employers. We make no representations or guarantees about positions posted by this office. We are not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of non-need based, off-campus employment. Students are urged to perform due diligence in researching employers when applying for or accepting private off-campus employment.

All hiring and compensation for work performed by student employees is handled directly between the student and the employer. SJC does not perform background checks on students applying for jobs, nor on employers posting job opportunities. Employers and students are encouraged to request reference information from each other as needed to establish qualifications, credentials and overall fit between the employer and the student applicant.

We will not post jobs that appear to discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, age, national origin, disabled or Vietnam Era veteran status, sexual orientation, disability, or gender, gender identity or expression, marital status, and genetic information. Those organizations requiring candidates to invest, purchase/rent supplies, pay a fee as a condition of employment, or are commission–only are excluded from posting positions. Private, in-home positions such as yard work, tutoring, childcare, etc., will not be approved for safety reasons, nor will positions related to the adult entertainment industry. If desired, you may request a resource list of local and regional employment companies/businesses that may be able to assist you.

While jobs posted on our Job Board are intended to reach college students, employers must expect that jobs may be viewable by the general public.
