JobX is the platform Smith College uses for student job advertising and hiring and is overseen by the Student Employment Office. JobX is primarily for upperclass students; first-year students are limited to working for Dining Services and America Reads Tutoring by college policy.
JobX will soon be upgraded and several enhancements will affect students.
Students will log onto JobX for the first time via Single Sign On (SSO) through the Smith College portal and have their own accounts. They will have their own Dashboard which will record all the jobs they apply for and are hired into.
A new Global Application will allow students to apply for multiple jobs at once without having to repeatedly complete applications. If an employer has added questions to the default application, they will simply have to answer the extra questions and attach a resume if requested. Students may also withdraw applications from jobs they are no longer interested in or if they’ve been hired and no longer need a job.
In a major change, students who have not completed all their paperwork with the Payroll Office will be able to view a job but will be unable to apply for the position until their paperwork has been submitted. Since the I9, W4, M4 and Direct Deposit forms are all mandatory before a student begins working, this puts the responsibility on the student to ensure she is work-ready before looking for jobs. It will be in the best interest of all students to do the required employment paperwork upon arrival at the college.
There will be a Print function so that students can print out a record of their employment history at the college when graduating and have it for future reference.
As always, students can sign up for JobMail to be notified when jobs of interest are posted and JobX provides multiple ways to search for jobs by specifying newest jobs, all on-campus, off-campus work-study jobs, summer jobs, etc.
