The student employment program at Missouri Southern State University is a valued and necessary function for making it a successful University. Over 400 students are hired each year to assist our academic, athletic and support areas to accomplish the mission of the University. Student workers are provided quality, professional and meaningful work experiences while supporting their overall success at Missouri Southern. Additionally, there are off-campus opportunities where students can find employment within the Joplin Community.
Human Resources supports the student employment process by providing answers to employment related questions, payroll processing, time sheet distribution and student employees' address changes.
On-campus student employment opportunities for Missouri Southern students are showcased on Hire a Lion through the Student Employment Office. For questions about the student employment process, students may contact the
Student Employment Coordinator.
