In order to be fully hired into the University, the hire process must be completed. This hire process consists of the completion of a student employment application, a background check, and online onboarding, which includes employment documents, an electronic I-9 and a short orientation video.

  • All new student employees are required to have an employment application on record through PeopleAdmin. To create an application, click  here .
    • Click ‘Create an Application’
    • Select ‘Student Application’
    • Enter the information for the application. Please note that a social security number is not needed to complete the application.
    • At the end of the application, click ‘Submit’.
    • Disregard the error message that says that the application has not been applied to a posting.
  • Once the application is complete, a background check will be initiated by Student Employment staff. The University uses a third party, by the name of Hire Right, to process all of its background screenings.
    • An email from Hire Right will be sent to the FAU email address on record. This email will contain log-in information and a link to a secure site. This site will require the provided log-in information as well as a name, Social Security number, address, and date of birth. Once this information is submitted, Hire Right will complete the background screening.
  • After the background check has been completed and is designated as meeting standards, the hiring department will be instructed to begin the hire process in Workday. Once the department completes the hiring process, you will then be sent an email from Workday to start the on-boarding process.
  • The onboarding for International students includes the Understanding of International Student Employment Eligibility. This form must be printed, completed, and signed by the International Student and Scholar Services office. The completed form must be then uploaded into the on-boarding portal during the onboarding process. This form can be accessed  here .
  • Onboarding also consists of entering demographic and contact information, as well as the completion of employment forms. Once onboarding is completed, it will be reviewed and approved by Student Employment staff and the onboarding process will be completed. Students may begin working once onboarding has been approved.
