EMS For Employers


How EMS Works

Thank you for your interest in using Colorado Christian University’s Employment Management Services (EMS)! EMS functions quite differently than most college career offices, but we believe these distinctions enable us to best serve employers like you. We want to earn your trust so that we become a source of talent that you come back to year after year.

Please contact the Director, Diana Harrison, at dharrison@ccu.edu two items listed below. You will then be directed to the next steps in the process!

  1. A brief description of your organization
  2. Either a copy of the job description(s) or list of jobs available

 Notices for All Employers:

  • Churches and Christian Ministries: Church/Ministry Statement of Faith and Lifestyle Covenant must show alignment with the CCU Statement of Faith and Lifestyle Covenant (page 2 highlighted section specifically).
  • Employers or Opportunities may be declined due to the following: EMS is currently oversaturated with similar organizations, oversaturated with similar posted opportunities, CCU does not have the program(s) required to qualify for open positions, or the industry does not align with CCU or EMS values.
  • EMS does not accept the following positions: unpaid positions, positions that pay less than minimum wage, full-time positions paying less than $40K/year (exception: schools), positions that require salary to be raised by employee are on a review basis only, canvassing, door-to-door sales, private in-home services, phone marketing, or organizations that have not met payroll at any time in the last 24 months.


How quickly will someone return my inquiry?

Our EMS staff will return your inquiry within 1-2 business days.

Can I advertise my positions to other departments at CCU?

Once an organization has been approved, we will post a position without the name of the employer so that students can view the opening, we call this a "Blind" post. Once a student or alumni meets with our staff and is determined they are qualified for the position the organization and contact information will be given directly to the candidate. Why does EMS do this? Simply, we want to ensure you only interview candidates that meet or exceed your job qualifications and this is how we can do just that!

*Once a position has been filled, we ask that you let us know so that we can remove it from our job opportunities.

What is your average pay for part-time positions?

It depends on the type of jobs, skills, and experience needed for the position. On average, our employers pay between $14-$17/hr for entry-level, part-time positions.

Do I have to pay these candidates?

Yes, EMS only accepts PAID positions. One of our primary objectives is to provide opportunities for students to earn income that will help them pay for school and decrease their student debt.

Once I hire a candidate, what is your role between our organization and the student?

After a student is hired, we bow out of the process. You know how to run your organization better than we do, and we leave you to do so. After approximately 90 days we may ask for an update on the student’s performance.

How does the interview process work?

After we send a candidate to you, we let you reach out to the student directly to set up an interview. High quality candidates won't last long. We strongly suggest contact the candidate as soon as possible to set up a future interview date and time. If we are helping you fill a large quantity of openings, we may schedule a date and time when you can interview candidates here at the EMS office.

How does the referral process work?

After we have received your inquiry, our team will market the position and choose one or more qualified candidates. We will send those candidates directly to you with a resume.
