Student employment opportunities with Cornell Dining

Cornell Dining is one of the largest employers of students in Ithaca, and we'd love to have you join our family, or we look forward to welcoming you back if you've worked for us in the past! 

No experience is necessary, we offer great pay and free meals during your shifts, and flexible scheduling to work when and where best fits your needs. There are special benefits for students who can be on campus early, before the semester begins. 

Returning students who can begin work between August 13th and 24th can move into their residence hall rooms early (if they'll be living on campus this year), receive a complimentary meal plan from August 13th to August 24th, enjoy a complimentary meal with each shift worked, and earn a bonus of $25 in BRBs for each day worked from August 13th to 24th. [Note: the deadline to sign up to move in early has passed, but students living off-campus can still apply for the program.]

New incoming students, both first-year students and incoming graduate students, can't start working until August 26th, but those who agree to work for Cornell Dining may still move into their on-campus housing early and receive a complimentary meal plan from August 13th to August 24th.

Explore the student jobs we have for Fall 2021 and if you'd like to join us, apply now!

Cornell Dining's student team is entirely student run, so you'll have the opportunity to advance with us and develop leadership skills as a training captain, supervisor, or manager. 

We hope you'll join us in Cornell Dining's mission: Nourishing the Future.
