Employment / Jobs in the Library Media Center
Library Student Assistants must be current Glendale Community College students.
Employment opportunities depend upon the availability of job openings, funding, and the times when students are available to work. Students are hired from both budgeted funding and Federal Work Study (FWS) awards. Students do not need to have a Federal Work Study Award or be receiving other financial aid to qualify for employment. Both current budget and Federal Work Study jobs are posted in Career Services. FWS must start at Career Services to get a referral before applying with the library. Students can visit, http://www.gc.maricopa.edu/fws/ to see if the library is hiring FWS.
The library accepts application for student positions throughout the year; however, most positions are filled in August and September. Other months to apply are January and May. We suggest students apply in early August for the fall semester and December for the spring semester. Students interested in working in the Library Media Center can obtain an application at Access Services or the Circulation Desk in the Library Media Center.
Positions in the library involve working in an active public service environment and may require evening and weekend hours. Students should plan for a 2 hour minimum for each block of work time.
