Job Descriptions

Job descriptions for all student positions must be filed with the Student Employment Office. These descriptions outline the responsibilities of each position and the required experience and skills. They also form the basis of the College's Student Wage Program.

Supervisors are responsible for drafting new job descriptions in conjunction with the Student Employment Office. To create a new student position complete the New Student Job Request Form.

To view student job descriptions in PeopleAdmin:

  6. Click on the job title to view that position’s information.
  7. To look for another position repeat steps 3 – 5.
Changing a Job Description

Position descriptions are updated when there are substantial changes in the scope and practice of a job. The College reserves the right to change position descriptions with notice to the student; normally, a College initiated change would be policy driven. It is recommended that the supervisor review position descriptions annually, preferably coinciding with student performance evaluations.

To make minor job description changes (that do not warrant a change in wage level) during the posting process:
