Hiring Students for Part-time Jobs

To assist our UT families (faculty and staff), the Center for Career Development & Academic Exploration will post childcare and tutoring positions on Handshake, a job search platform searchable by UT students.

Families and caregivers should first reference Tips for Employers when wanting to hire UTK students for part-time employment in Knoxville and surrounding areas.

The center makes no recommendations to families concerning the nature of students providing services. In addition, the center makes no recommendations to the caregivers as to the nature of the families other than that they are currently employed by the University of Tennessee. The UT families and caregivers acknowledge that the University of Tennessee is not responsible for, and will be held harmless against, any injury, loss, or other damage arising from or related in any manner to the UT families’ and caregivers’ use of Handshake for job postings.

Employees are encouraged not to personally employ students or staff whom they advise, supervise, or instruct per policies FI0125 and HR0122.
