Job Location and Development

JLD For Employers

The Job Location and Development (JLD) program is a federally funded program, which provides part-time and seasonal/temporary jobs postings to all currently enrolled Southern Miss students regardless of financial need. All job opportunities the program is made aware of are posted in the online job database which is powered by Handshake.

 Each year, local employers, such as yourself, help us generate over $500,000 in additional income for our students! We hope to continue this partnership as we continue to increase part-time off campus employment for our students.

There is no charge for posting jobs through handshake.

Build your employer Brand 
Job Location and Development assists students with making connections between their academic and job experiences. One of the ways that we achieve this is by being committed to partnering with you, the employer, to meet your recruitment needs. 
Let students get hands-on with your brand, meet you in person, learn from you and share it with their friends. Whey they do, they’ll understand your values and why your company excels. After all, today’s Southern Miss educated students are tomorrow’s future leaders.
