UW Departments

Campus departments should follow the steps outlined here to create an employer account, connect with the University of Washington, and post positions.
*UW departments, please note – if you are posting on-campus jobs for students, please categorize them as “on-campus student employment” rather than “job” or “internship” to ease the search process for students.
