FAQ: What Every Applicant for a Student Job Should Know

We are now accepting applications only for the term and positions listed in red above. Other positions may become available. Supervisors may not know until early into the term exactly how many people they will need. Some of them may not hold interviews until later in the semester. 

Common questions:

  1. What is the status of my application?
    Your application was sent to the supervisors of the position(s) you applied for.
    The supervisor will call you if s/he is interested in interviewing you.
  2. When will I be called for an interview?
    Supervisors will contact you to arrange an interview if your schedule matches the vacant positions they need to fill. Supervisors will probably contact everyone they wish to interview by the third week of the term. If you have not heard from us by then, you should consider applying elsewhere.
  3. Why wasn't I selected for an interview?
    You didn't provide contact information, so we couldn't get in touch with you.
    You graduated.
    You're not a college student.
    Your available times to work were too limited.
    You didn't include your current class schedule.
    We were not actively hiring for the position you applied for, or the position was already filled.
