Student Employment

Student employment can be an important part of a student’s overall college experience. Not only can students enhance their academic experience through many positions, they also have the opportunity to acquire workplace skills, knowledge, and abilities while enrolled at Williams.

The COVID-19 pandemic may continue to create the need for some changes in our typical academic year hiring practices. Please take a moment to review these bullet points. Additional resources can also be found below.

  • Students are still required to complete the I-9 Form before they can begin working and it must be done in person.
  • At this time, student employees are expected to complete their work in person. All protocols and precautions for student employee health and safety must be followed.
  • The Campus Earning Expectation is once again in place for the 2021-22 academic year.
  • The limit of 10 work hours per week will continue to be observed.
