Be sure to read the position description and application instructions thoroughly, and follow all instructions. The two most important things you can do toward getting an interview are submitting clear availability for the times we ask for and submitting an original cover letter that follows instructions and answers the questions we ask, making sure to address the specific job you're applying for.
Think of it as a pre-interview--show us that you're a great candidate for this job! Hint: if you give us the same cover letter you turn in for every job or something you found online, that's probably not what we're looking for.

Federal Work Study
While the Cline Library encourages applications from Federal Work Study (FWS) eligible students, we hire student wage positions as well. Please feel free to apply regardless of your eligibility for FWS.
FWS is a federally funded employment program available to undergraduate and graduate students who exhibit financial need as calculated from their FAFSA information. The FWS program helps students meet their educational expenses through part-time employment.
International students are encouraged to apply for library student jobs for which they are qualified. Please be aware that some of the positions require a strong proficiency in reading and speaking English, and some also require applicants to be available for more than one semester.
International students are limited to working 20 hours per week.
For more information, please see the Center for International Education job information for F-1 Students and for J-1 Students.
If you have any questions about a job for which you'd like to apply, please contact the supervisor for that job.
Required Identification Documents
When you are hired to work any job, you must provide identification to serve as your proof of eligibility to work in the United States. For most people, that requirement is fulfilled by one of the following two options:
A state-issued driver license or state ID in addition to your original, signed, unlaminated social security card.
A United States passport (a passport card for crossing the border to Canada or Mexico is acceptable).
You will be required to provide identification to meet these requirements upon being hired for any job (on campus or off campus), so it is a good idea to make sure that you have them in your possession in advance if you are applying for work.
