Pay a temporary employee you've already found

Short-term hires are engaged through the MITemps program, managed by our vendor partner, nextSource. This provides a cost-effective, efficient way of onboarding and managing this population of the MIT workforce.

How to use MITemps

  • Onboard a short-term hire in VNDLY. To comply with onboarding requirements, you must submit your request at least 3-7 business days in advance of when you need the worker to start.
  • Learn about the process for working with MITemps.

Extending or ending employment of a temporary employee

  • For temporary employees employed through a vendor partner, MIT managers work with the company to end, extend, or otherwise change a temporary employee's assignment with MIT. The company will communicate directly with the temporary employee.
  • If the individual is authorized to work onsite, DLCs must end authorized access at the end of the temporary employee's engagement.
