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 Middlebury’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.

Viewing Job Descriptions

To view student job descriptions in PeopleAdmin, follow these steps:

  • Log in to PeopleAdmin with your Middlebury credentials. 
  • Select the Student Supervisor user type (this is the field next to your name). A green notification message will display at the top of your screen to verify this update.
  • Click the down arrow next to the text that reads Applicant Tracking and select Position Management. The top of your screen should change from blue to orange and new menu options will now be visible.
  • Select the Classifications option in the top center section of your screen. Then click on Student.
  • Search for the job description that you would like to review. At this point you may select More Search Options and enter the 8-digit Supervisor ID to see all positions that report to that ID number.
  • Click on the job title to view that position’s information.

Changing Job Descriptions

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