Student Employment

Add Value to Your Resume

 Thank you for your interest in employment at the University Libraries:

  • University Libraries  is looking for students who have work-study awards to fill open positions beginning September 2014.
  • Due to the high volume of applications received each semester, you will not be contacted unless you are selected for an interview.
  • If an opening occurs, the department supervisor reviews submitted applications and schedules interviews.
  • The Student Employment Opportunities page includes information on all the departments that hire students along with an idea of job responsibilities.
  • Only one application is necessary to be considered for any Library Student Assistant opening in the University Libraries.

Additional Application Instructions:

  • If you have been awarded a work-study award as part of your financial aid package (see your financial award letter), please indicate that on the application. Learn more about WMU Work Study Financial Aid awards.
  • Update your application by turning in a schedule for each semester/session you would like your application to be kept on file. Frequently supervisors need specific time slots staffed so your availability (day and time) is extremely important.
  • If hired, you will need documentation for the Form I-9. To prevent any delay in processing your hire paperwork or starting your job, please have your documentation available.  International students who do not have a Social Security card will need to check with the International Admissions & Services office in Ellsworth Hall and follow their instructions to obtain one.

Download your application and submit it by mail, fax, or in person.
