Employing Students this Academic Year

Posting Your Position Online

Open student positions can be posted online through PeopleAdmin. For instructions on posting a job go to the SEO website and in the Supervisor Tool Box, select “Using PeopleAdmin”.

Postings will be made visible to students on September 9th. The week before classes begin and during the first two weeks of school, students that have received financial aid will have the chance to apply for posted jobs on campus. Students that have NOT received financial aid must wait to apply until October 1st. The intent is to assist students receiving work study to obtain a job that best meets their needs. (Yes, it is okay to ask a student if they receive financial aid.) If you are rehiring a student that has worked for you previously, or for research purposes, financial aid status is not relevant.

Employment Eligibility

Student employees MUST complete the federally mandated I-9 and W-4 forms in order to work. Once these forms have been completed (this only needs to be done once!) the student will receive a blue employment card indicating that they are eligible to work for the College. Blue cards, once issued, are valid until the student graduates. Students that have NOT received their blue card CANNOT work or be paid until their employment forms are completed!

Reminders:

  • All student employees are limited to working no more than 20 hours per week in on-campus jobs during the academic year, with the exception of full-week recesses.
  • An Electronic Personnel Action Form (“EPAF”) must be completed for all students hired to work during the academic year. Even if the student worked last year – or over the summer – an EPAF still needs to be submitted to our office.
  • Students must submit the hours that they work in the pay period in which those hours were worked.

Join the Friends of International Students Host Program!

Dear Faculty and Staff-

International Student & Scholar Services invites you to become a host for an international student this fall.

• The program provides a terrific opportunity for you to meet people from around the world, and to connect with a student in an individual way.
• It’s a friendship program. Contacts between student and family are arranged on your own terms.
• To date, the Class of 2019 will include more than 70 international students, including some U.S. students who live abroad.
• In September, we also will welcome over 12 international exchange students.
• Most of the students participate in our program, so we will need many new hosts.
If you are interested in exploring the possibility of serving as a host to an international student, please let us know.

TO REGISTER: Please contact Carolyn Dahm, ISSS Administrative Coordinator, by email at isss@middlebury.edu or by telephone at 443-5858. (Your email reply will go directly to the ISSS office mailbox. In either your email or phone message, please provide your name, email address, and phone number.)

Please share this information with friends and family who do not work at the College.
We invite all who are interested to become a part of this wonderful program!

Windows 10: What’s Happening?

win10

With Microsoft offering free Windows 10 upgrades to current owners of Windows 7 and 8, Information Technology Services (ITS) has received questions about this new operating system and our plans for the future.  ITS currently recommends that individuals do not install Windows 10 if they are prompted to do so on a college-owned machine.  Until thorough testing of Windows 10 functionality with College resources has been completed, ITS will continue to install and support Windows 7 on college-owned computers.  Windows 10 will be made available on campus computers later on, after any significant issues are resolved and important supporting documentation has been updated.

As we put Windows 10 through its paces, our observations, known issues, and training resources will be gathered for convenient access.  Visit http://go/win10 for the latest information.

Interested in a peek at what lies ahead?  Check out this brief lynda.com course, Windows 10 New Features (~ 40 minutes).
