Student Hiring Process - There are two types of student employment hires

New Hire: A new hire simply means the student does not currently have an on-campus position and must submit Federal and State tax forms; the student and the supervisor must also complete and submit their respective portions of the I-9.* All of the aforementioned paperwork is to be submitted to Courtney Rousseau in Internship and Career Services - AU315.

Existing Hire: An existing hire means the student currently has an on-campus position; the supervisor need only complete the eHire form in the my.butler portal

You may verify if the student is a New Hire via the eHire form in my.butler. This process is explained in a screenshot guide below.

*Positions with the following are housed on Butler's campus but are NOT considered to be Butler University student on-campus employment: Aramark (Starbucks, Dining Halls), Follett (Bookstore), and RuffaloCODY (Butler Telefund)

New Hire Paperwork (I-9 with color photocopies and Federal and State Tax Forms)

As mentioned above, students who do not currently hold on-campus employment are "New Hires." You will need to submit the paper forms listed below to Courtney Rousseau, Student Employment Coordinator (AU 315) by the first day of employment - Training is considered employment.  

Please consult the Supervisor New Hire Guide to help you navigate the process. All required forms are linked to this document in a printable, pdf format.

A word to supervisors ~ Show Detail

If you wish to hire a student employee, you are responsible for completing the eHire process within the my.butler portal in addition to submitting any necessary paperwork to Internship and Career Services (ICS). Student employees are employees of Butler University and are covered by workmen's compensation. Therefore, after offering a student a position, all eHire forms and paperwork processes MUST be completed prior to the first day of work - training is considered work. Students MAY NOT begin working before that time. All questions can be directed to Courtney Rousseau, Student Employment Coordinator ( or 317-940-8425).

Please Consider Posting Your Position in BLUE ~ Show Detail

I regularly hear from and meet with students who are actively seeking on-campus employment. They often ask why more on-campus positions are not posted in BLUE (Butler Links U to Employers), and have expressed a great interest in having a centralized location to house existing jobs. When posting a job in BLUE, you can specify an end date for applications, narrow your search to students with specific majors, and have student applications emailed to you. If you would like to post a position in BLUE or learn more about how to use it, please contact me at or 317-940-8425. ~ Courtney Rousseau
