Student Disclaimer

This website is an employment referral service for Missouri State University-West Plains students who are currently enrolled at the University. Students apply directly to the employer(s) as indicated in each listing and are not guaranteed a position. We encourage you to conduct a broad search of jobs as often as needed to obtain employment. When reviewing job listings, students should keep in mind interests and career goals, in addition to schedule and pay rate.

Job listings on this website do not represent endorsements by Missouri State University and the University is not responsible for wages, safety, working conditions or other aspects of off-campus employment. It is the responsibility of the student to take the necessary precautions when interviewing for and accepting employment. Job seekers are encouraged to exercise good judgment when considering a job.
