Student Employment at WNHU

Success Starts Here

At the University of New Haven, our students come first, and their personal and professional development is our primary focus.

As a result, students are responsible for the operation of WNHU through paid positions that closely mirror those found at professional stations.

Jobs are posted in the fall semester of each academic year, and students are encouraged to apply for these valuable opportunities.

Positions are filled at the beginning of second semester in January, and existing members of the student leadership team work directly with our new “hires”, mentoring them through their training period.
