The Career Services Center coordinates the Student Worker Program at HCC, which enhances the services of 50 areas on campus via over 120 student employment positions each year. The center works with students throughout the employment process, from answering application questions to conducting the student worker orientation. Center staff is also in direct communication with the hiring departments across campus, assisting supervisors in the employment process.
Want to apply?
If you are interested in becoming a student worker, you must first meet one basic requirement: be currently enrolled at HCC.
Next, fill out and return the fully completed and signed student worker application. You may return the form by either dropping it off at our office while you are on campus or faxing it to 815.235.6130. Applications are also available at the office. Feel free to fill out and return the application during a break between classes.
Applications are accepted throughout the year. However, most student workers are hired in the weeks leading up to the start of a semester. If your application catches the eye of a hiring department, you will be contacted for an interview. Here are a few things that you can do in order to make your application more visible:
• Designate which hiring departments you are most interested in working for on the application form.
• Contact your “top” hiring departments in order to let the supervisors know you applied and would like to work for them.
• Reapply at least every other semester if you haven’t been contacted for an interview. By keeping your application information fresh, we know that you are still interested and can still be contacted through the means you indicate.
If you have any questions about the Student Worker Program, stop by the office or call us 815.599.3536 or 815.599.3573.
