Position Description

In addition to general workplace expectations, the College establishes position descriptions to set expectations for specific positions. All student employee positions must have a job description per Federal Work Study guidelines under the Department of Education. Each position description contains the following information: department name, position title, assigned work hours per week, WLS Levels, itemized description of duties, list of learning opportunities, and outline of basic and desirable qualifications.


Position descriptions are prepared by each department in consultation with the Labor Program Office. Copies are centrally maintained for all departments, and a new draft must be submitted whenever a department upgrades an existing position description or creates a new one. Departmental job descriptions should be reviewed annually in consultation with the Labor Program Office. All students should be familiar with their position descriptions to understand the position’s expectations and opportunities. This aids in establishing exceptional work habits and in developing language for resumes and position interviews on campus and job interviews off campus.
