Penn Student Agencies has two main recruitment periods:
Fall Semester Start
PSA recruits for open positions vacated by graduating Seniors over the Summer Months. The main on-campus recruiting period typically takes place in late August during NSO and Move-In. This year due to the COVID pandemic, PSA’s recruitment efforts will be virtual. We encourage those interest to follow our social media pages for updates.
Candidates who go through this recruiting period typically will start working for PSA in September. PSA typically offers between 40 to 60 positions for our Fall New Hire Cohort. Due to the ongoing pandemic and business operations, we expect this number to be reduced this year.

Applications Due by: September 11th, 2020 at 5:00PM EST
Interviews Offers Extended by September 13th, 2020 on a rolling basis until positions are filled.

Spring Semester Start
PSA recruits for newly open or anticipated soon-to-open positions in November. The main on-campus recruiting period typically takes place in late in the weeks leading up to Winter Break and the first week back in the Spring.
Candidates who go through this recruiting period typically will start working for PSA in January or February. PSA typically offers up to 15 positions for our Spring New Hire Cohort. However, due to the pandemic’s impacts on the Fall semester we expect this number to increase to roughly 30 to 40 positions.
Please check back in November for Spring Semester Deadlines and Important Dates!
