Things to Consider When Creating a Student Employee Job
There are several things to do and consider before creating a job description and posting to Bulldog NetWork.
- What will the student employee be doing? Think about the tasks, projects, and responsibilities you’d like a student employee to work on. You’ll use this information to build out the job description.
- How will the position be funded? Most positions are funded directly out of departmental budgets. Is there money in your department’s budget to compensate a student employee? The student may have a Federal Work Study (FWS) award that will initially fund their on-campus job. Another way student employee positions are funded is through the Student Employment Fund (SEF) process, which occurs each spring.
- Did you know? There are three types of student employees on campus: Non-Federal Work Study Students (who make up the majority of student employees), Federal Work Study Students (who are paid through Financial Aid and their individual award), and International Students Working on Campus. More information about each type of student employee – and the specific processes and policies for each – can be found by navigating to ‘Student Employee Types’ in the menu to the left.
- How many hours do you anticipate the student employee will work each week? Typically, we see about 10 hours/week for student employee positions. During the academic year, student employees cannot work more than 28 total hours inclusive of all on-campus positions. During winter and summer breaks, student employees cannot work more than 40 total hours inclusive of all on-campus positions.
- What will the hourly rate of pay be? The minimum hourly rate is the NC minimum wage ($7.25). The average across campus is $10-$12/hour.
