Employment Q&A's

Do I have to be certified in First Aid, CPR and AED to apply?

Are there other employment opportunities on campus?

Yes, there are numerous opportunities for student employment on campus. They can be found using Ashland University Career Connect.

Do all parts of the application need to be filled out to be considered for an interview?

No, we understand incoming freshman may not know their student ID number, mailbox number or times of availability.  We simply need a reliable way to contact you on the application.
