All student supervisors need to make sure each of their student employees is officially on the department’s payroll before allowing students to begin working for fall semester, according to Molly Walsh, financial aid. All new student employees must submit a completed referral form to financial aid before their first day on the job. New student workers who have never worked on campus before must fill out a Form I-9 and a Form W-4 before receiving a referral form and before they may begin working. Completing the Form I-9 includes providing proof of identity and eligibility to work in the United States by providing original, unexpired documents such as:
- Social Security card and picture ID;
- Birth certificate and picture ID;
- U.S. passport.
If a student has been working during the summer and will continue in that same job for the fall the student does not need to submit a new referral form. Also, if a student was rehired on the rehire roster last spring, the student will not need to submit a new referral form for the fall. To verify whether a student may begin working in the fall, contact Walsh at 7311 or email@example.com.
The fall/spring academic year hiring period begins on August 15, according to Molly Walsh, financial aid. Over the next weeks, hundreds of students will be checking the online job board to find a job for fall semester. Listing job openings on the online job board is the most efficient way to ensure departments get the most qualified applicants for available positions and ensures equal job access for all students.
Student job listings are needed as soon as possible. Departments hiring student employees this fall are asked to submit job openings prior to August 15 through the jobs tool web site at https://appstwo.up.edu/studentjobs. All fall job postings will go live on August 15 for students to view. You may contact Walsh at 7311 or firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as positions are filled and she will remove them from the job board.
