Information about Student Employment
The CDC compiles a list of jobs on campus that is released to students on the first day of each semester and in March for Summer break. Many offices require that you complete the standard student employment application. Other offices require their own applications, or request a cover letter and resume. Please see specific job descriptions for instructions. Submit your applications as soon as possible directly to the contact listed in the posting. Do not submit your application to the CDC.
Note that some offices, such as Residence Life, Student Activities, OIT, and the Bookstore, hire a large number of students throughout the year. Contact these offices directly if you are interested, or watch for their promotions.
PROFESSIONAL FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
The SMCM Professional Fellowship Program, funded in part by the SGA, is open to rising Juniors and Seniors (those with more than 55 credit hours). These 25 internship-like experiences include a high level of responsibility and autonomy and pay $10/hour ($2800 per year). Details on the application process, as well as descriptions of the specific positions for 2012-2013, are available here. Note that applications are due on September 4th!
The Federal Work Study program is administered out of the Financial Aid Office on campus. If you have been told that you are eligible for work study funds, please contact Denise Merican with any questions (email@example.com, 240-895-3000, Glendening 131). You might also consider inquiring with those offices where you would like to work.
OFF CAMPUS JOBS
Local employers are encouraged to post part-time positions in Op-Net. Other places to look include Southern Maryland Online and Indeed.com (search for Lexington Park or California, MD). The CDC also maintains a babysitter wiki as a courtesy to faculty/staff with children and students looking for regular childcare opportunities.
*Please note that full- and part-time professional (non-student) positions are maintained by Human Resources.
