Applicants must be organized, responsible, and dependable individuals, who are able to work with others as well as independently. A willingness to learn is essential, with an enthusiasm for the subject. Confidentiality is required and students will be required to sign a confidentiality statement.

Applicants must have completed the course they are applying to grade for on Middlebury's Vermont campus with a grade of B+ or higher. 

Applicants should apply prior to the beginning of each semester. Those who have been hired as graders in the fall and are interested in continuing to work for the department in the spring do not need to reapply for the spring.  However, they must email Amy Holbrook to notify her of their wish to continue in a grading position even if it is not for the same course and/or instructor. All applicants must reapply each fall (even if they worked the spring semester immediately prior) as the SEO office purges applications from PeopleAdminin each summer.

The Economics department strives to place all qualified applicants; however, it is not always possible.

Student Employment requires all student positions and hiring be processed through PeopleAdmin. A link to PeopleAdmin to apply for an ECON Grader/TA position will be available during the next term.

Please direct any questions you have regarding current openings or the position to Amy Holbrook ( (802-443-5327).

Questions relating to using PeopleAdmin, completing employment forms, and time entry can be directed to the Student Employment Office.
