Student Employees Recruitment and Hiring Process
The University of Arizona Libraries accepts and encourages student employee support. While LORM does not coordinate the Libraries’ recruitment and hiring of student employees, we have added links here for your convenience in addressing their recruitment, hiring and management.
Student Employees, whether work-study, international, undergraduate or graduate students, are part-time, temporary employees who are currently enrolled at The University of Arizona with the primary goal of achieving a degree. Note that student employees are nonexempt staff who work hourly and would be subject to overtime or compensatory time for hours worked over 40 in a week.
