    05.26.22  Terminate Student Jobs in eServe

    • If your department is currently employing a student worker, but this position is no longer needed, terminate the student job in eServe. There is no approval flow, the termination happens upon submission. This is especially important for graduating students: Another department may wish to hire the recent graduate as a temporary worker, but cannot do so if the graduate has an active student job.
    • If the recently graduated student will continue working in a temporary capacity with your department, please terminate the student job and rehire them as a temporary worker. (Temporary Hires on Tufts Payroll)
