Students interested in employment with the college must complete an application and return it to the Office of Human Resources (HR), along with a copy of your class schedule for the semester you will be working.
Human Resources does not provide assistance in finding employment; students will need to inquire with departments across campus to secure a position. A list of departments that typically hire students is provided here: Student Employment Process
"Being a student assistant/work-study student can be a rewarding experience. You'll work on campus, preferably in the area of your major. You'll be working with quality people and learning a 'hands on' education as well. It's great for references, friendships, and maturity. Plus, you get paid for it!" - A quote from a college work-study student here at Tyler Junior College.
