UWindsor employees wanting to hire students for the 2015/2016 academic year can now submit their job proposal requests for the Work Study Program, which funds approximately 300 on-campus, part-time positions for students who have demonstrated financial need.
Employers’ job proposal must be submitted through the mySuccess system by September 30. The deadline for hiring a student is November 15, and confirmation of hiring forms will be accepted until November 29.
According to student loan and financial aid director Marian Doll, the program offers positions that are conveniently located on campus, flexible, and with a wide variety of opportunities to choose from.
“I believe that our students truly benefit from the on-campus employment experiences offered by the University of Windsor, including the work-study program,” says Doll.
Fourth-year political science students Aleena Tan, who has participated in work-study since 2013, found that combining work with her academics has allowed her to gain valuable experience, acquire necessary skills and prove herself as a valuable employee.
“It is my hope that this work experience will benefit me going forward as I enter my final year of studies and as I prepare to seek out full-time employment,” she says.
Approved students who have applied by September 11 will receive their authorization to participate in the program on or before October 2.
Winter start students can also be accommodated provided that they apply by the October 15, and the confirmation of hiring deadline will be extended to January 30 only for employers intending on hiring a winter start student.
