Student Job Description

Welcome to the Student Job Description page, where you will find the necessary tools and forms for constructing  a well written job description. You can also take a look at all of the positions available on campus based on labor department.  All student work positions are required to have an updated job description on file with the Labor Program Office.


Students work in over 125 labor departments, each of which is supervised by at least one faculty member or professional staff person selected by the department head.  Additionally, most departments have labor mentors, individuals who are not directly charged with supervisory responsibilities, but who actively participate in student training and development.  Many departments also have students serving in supervisory / leadership roles.  The Dean of Labor provides general oversight for all work areas to ensure consistency of administration, training and assessment, but departments vary widely in the nature of work performed, method of supervision, degree of autonomy, etc.  Students are encouraged to experience a variety of work environments to maximize their learning opportunities and expose themselves to different work styles.
