Student Employment Opportunities

With a variety of Dining Services options available for customers at APU, we also offer diverse options for student employees to work on campus. Dining Services supports employees’ academic and financial goals and needs by providing campus-centered employment, and by making an effort to fit the employee in a position that will align with various career skill sets.

Several dining venues are open outside the traditional work week, allowing us to offer more shift alternatives than many campus employers. We are also one of the largest employers of students on campus. Additionally, positions may open throughout the year. Any undergraduate student registered for at least 9 units, or graduate student registered for 3 units, may apply. Special requirements apply to International Student applications.

Ready to apply? All departments at APU use Handshake for the application process. Visit Handshake to register and log in. Once you are in the portal, search for Dining Services and follow the instructions to apply. Contact if you haven't heard from us within a week of submitting an application.

If you have any questions about the application procedure, stop by the Dining Services employment office, located behind Marshburn Library on East Campus, or email
