On-campus employment is limited to no more than 20 hours per week while school is in session. Full-time employment (working more than 20 hours a week) is acceptable only during official school breaks such as Winter break, Spring break and Summer.
There are a few resources for Vanderbilt students to find on-campus employment.
Hire-A-Dore is a database for Vanderbilt related job opportunities. PLEASE NOTE: HIRE-A-DORE ALSO INCLUDES POSITIONS THAT ARE OFF-CAMPUS. J-1 students are not legally allowed to accept these jobs without employment authorization. They are generally classified as “other”, but be mindful when searching for employment on this site.
Additionally, if you have trouble logging in to Hire-A-Dore on your first attempt, contact Student Employment, and they will be able to help you.
Student Employment is another resource for helping Vanderbilt students find work.
Their office is located at 2309 West End Avenue, Nashville, TN 37203
The phone number is (615) 343-4562
Off-Campus employment authorization is called Academic Training or AT. You will find more information on Academic Training by clicking on the link at the top of this page.
Volunteering must be a legitimate, advertised volunteer position in which you do not receive any type of compensation including financial.
