Students Awarded Work-Study from the Waitlist

Please be advised there are now 35 students who have recently been awarded work-study from the waitlist. These students have until January 31, 2014 to secure employment. If you are no longer hiring, please remove your job posting from the student employment website. Students are calling to say they have applied to multiple positions, but no one is responding to their application. If you need help moving your position, we are happy to assist you – please email us at stuemp@du.edu.

New Enhancements to the Student Employment Website

We are excited to let you know that shortly there will be new features and benefits added to the student employment website. Here are a few of the enhancements you will notice:

  1. New Status Icons will visually help you identify the Job Status of your positions – you can mouse over the icons provided for detailed definitions and important notes for each Job Status which will minimize confusion as to where you should move your job postings.
  2. Ability to change multiple job statuses – you can now move multiple jobs to listed, review, or storage at the same time.
  3. The "hire" option has been removed to avoid confusion, all hiring is done through webCentral.
  4. The Student view will now be sorted by Department (previously jobs were listed by the posting date). This will allow students to quickly search for jobs of interest to them.

Human Resource Trainings

Communicating with Non-Native Speakers of English:
There is still room available in this Wednesday's Communicating with Non-Native Speakers of English from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm in University Hall, Room 306. The session will be led by staff from International Student and Scholar Services and The English Language Center. Email Aimee Neu at aimee.neu@du.edu to rsvp.

Session Description:
DU is an increasingly international institution that attracts students and scholars from all over the world; and many US born and immigrated students, employees, family members and campus visitors also speak a range of language beyond US English. If your day-to-day duties involves interacting with those who are non-native speakers of English, this session will provide helpful suggestions for communicating more effectively. All faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend. This is a great opportunity for those staff that include the Inclusive Excellence competency in their performance management form.

Preparing For and Delivering Student Employee Performance Reviews:
December 6th from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm in University Hall, Room 306. Registration is through webCentral. Login, click on the Employee tab, scroll down and on the lower right under Training, click on Management and Supervisory to register. Registration questions can be direct to Aimee Neu at aimee.neu@du.edu

By utilizing the performance evaluation form and holding feedback meetings with student employees, you provide them with an opportunity to:

  • Experience the performance review process (prior to entering the "real world")
  • Recognize strengths and areas for development
  • Understand their impact on their unit/division/DU goals

Session Description: 

  • Understand the value of the performance evaluation form and process
  • Deliver ongoing performance feedback
  • Identity development opportunities for your students
  • Prepare for and conduct a performance review
