Student Employment

Are you interested in working at the Children’s Center? Each semester we hire up to 90 students to work with us here at the Children’s Center. Many are Child Development majors, but that is not a requirement as we also hire for the kitchen and office. You can submit an application at any time, but we hire in the weeks before the main semesters begin. As soon as you know your school schedule, submit your job application and we will see if your availability fits our needs. Interviews are arranged in August and January. The Associated Students Children’s Center supports the academic and personal endeavors of the Sacramento State community through its commitment to serve the needs of families and promote educational experiences in the area of early childhood education. Check out our Children’s Center Student Staff Manual.

Due to high volumes, not every applicant will receive a phone call.


We currently do no have any non-student employment opportunities.
