Best Practices

  • Select “On Campus Student Employment” for campus jobs. If you are posting a research or internship position for students on campus, you can multi-select those fields.
  • You may select from any of the application methods: apply via 12twenty, apply via an external link, or have students apply directly to you via email. If you would like to review applications in 12twenty, select “Apply via This Site.”
  • You may edit the documents students are required to submit with their application, but a resume is always required.
  • Designating an interviewer is optional, but you must designate a primary job contact. Select the “Use My Information” button to autofill the contact information associated with your 12twenty account, or provide a colleague’s information. You can choose whether or not to make each contact field visible to student applicants.
  • To ensure your posting is visible to students, the CCD recommends selecting all of the student groups for eligibility.

Review Applications

  1. If your job posting directed students to apply via 12twenty, you can log in to the platform to review applicants:
  2. Select Job Listings on the left sidebar menu and then select your posting.
  3. Go to the Applicants tab to see and review a list of applicants for your posting.

Because students can select which notifications they receive on 12twenty, the CCD recommends communicating with candidates about their application status outside of 12twenty.
