Private Households

Thank you for your interest in recruiting Mizzou students! To recruit students for part-time jobs in your home, such as personal attendants, babysitters, or tutors, we ask that you complete the following job request form.  The MU Career Center will post your position to Handshake, a new recruiting platform we recently released. Rather than having you create and manage an employer profile and job vacancies, the MU Career Center will now manage these for you!
