Student employees are an integral part of the daily operation of Smith College. The Student Employment Office, part of the Office of Student Financial Services, offers employment opportunities that support educational and personal goals and help students achieve both professional and personal development.
Students with Work-Study Have Priority for All Jobs
Students with "Federal Work-Study" or "Smith Campus Job" in their award notification have priority for all jobs on campus.
Students who are enrolled less than half-time (fewer than 8 credits) are only eligible to apply for casual positions through the Office of Human Resources.
Non-Work-Study Waiting Period
Students without work-study must wait until October 1 in the fall, and two weeks after classes start in the spring to apply for on-campus jobs.
Requests for Non-Work-Study Hire
After the non-work-study waiting period or for special requests, employers must request a non-work-study hire. Employers must provide a reason why the student is best suited for the job. Exceptions will only be granted under very special conditions. The position must be reopened the following semester to work-study students.
