All students working or wishing to work must read the Student Employment Guide for Students
in entirety to familiarize themselves with the current policies and procedures and the JobX website. You are expected to be familiar with college
policies and procedures as a student employee. Please feel free to write email@example.com with any questions or if you need clarification.
Jobs are currently open ONLY to students who have been awarded work-study for 2012-2013. Non-aid students will be able to
apply for jobs on JOBX after October 1 and two weeks after the start of classes in the spring.
Non-aid students who obtained jobs last year are also not automatically eligible to keep them and the jobs must be re-advertised for
students on aid.
The maximum number of hours for any student, on aid or not, is 12 hours a week or one
'full-time' position. First Years work a maximum of 10 hours per week. NOTE: Work during breaks and Spot Job work count against your work-study allotment. The only time earnings are exempt is
during J-Term. Students receiving a stipend for positions such as STRIDE, HCA, etc. are not
eligible for a second job. This policy attempts to offer all students an equal opportunity to work, especially in these difficult economic times. The base
pay rate for 2012-2013 is $8.50 an hour. Off-Campus Work-Study and America Reads pays $9.00, but upperclass students are limited to 10 hours a week
instead of 12 because of the higher rate which brings you to your earnings limit sooner. The same applies to any job that pays a higher

and agencies (Federal Work-Study required) and are not eligible for other campus jobs until their sophomore year.

JobX is our web-based method of advertising
student jobs for upperclass students. This program aids Smith College's goal of giving students with Work-Study in their aid packages priority
for all jobs. The college is now offering many students College Work (CWORK)in their aid packages, and because that is campus funding and not
federal, those students will not be able to work at America Reads/America Counts Tutoring or Off-Campus Work-Study. Only those with Federal
Work-Study (FWS) are eligible for such positions. Please check the type of work-study you've been awarded on either your award letter or on

on-campus, off-campus at Smith pre-approved non-profit agencies, or tutoring under the America Reads/America

close to campus if students need additional earnings.Treat your application to any job seriously and think about visiting the Career Development
Office's webpage for assistance on resume writing. To check if
