Work in Harrison

For most jobs, you must be a Harrison resident. We give priority to Work Study students, but we do hire non-work study students if we are unable to fill the position or if a qualified person brings a unique set of skills or experience.

Harrison Office: Are you living in Harrison for the 2017-18 school year? Do you like to hang out with fun people? Are you a dedicated student looking for a job? If so, you may be perfect for a job with the Harrison College House Office staff.

We hire for specific Assistant Manager positions who will work closely with the staff to advance into Manager positions. We encourage freshmen, new Harrison sophomores, and Harrison Juniors to apply (although all are welcome). We look for responsible, hard-working people with specific skills and/or a strong motivation to learn and carry through.

Apply here!
