Graduate Student Employment and Training (GSET) Program

GSET is NYU Tandon's on-campus employment program for graduate students, designed to support our philosophy of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship.


With more than 400 positions available, GSET is a valuable resource that can help you find the right employment on campus. You'll have the option to work as a tutor, a lab assistant, or in an administrative capacity at NYU Tandon. 

The GSET program bridges the gap between academia and the professional world by helping graduate students:

  • Establish professional skills
  • Enhance problem-solving abilities
  • Create strong foundations for successful careers
  • Learn about business ethics
  • Understand cutting-edge technology
  • Develop an entrepreneurial spirit

Most of our on-campus employment opportunities allow for up to 20 hours a week of work and pay $20 per hour.


Eligibility

To be eligible for the GSET program, you must be a full-time graduate student at NYU Tandon with no current employment. After your first semeseter, you must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 to retain your GSET position.


How to Apply

Speak to your academic advisor, check NYU's CareerNet or visit WayUp for a listing of available positions and application instructions. Please note: It is each department's individual responsibility to allocate any open positions they have posted.


Securing Your Position

Once you have received a letter of appointment from a department offering you a position, you will need to promptly log on to the Wasserman Center for Career Development's On-Campus Employment page to complete all necessary forms.
