Eligible faculty and staff can begin submitting Work Study opportunities for the Fall Winter term. This year, there were some important changes to the program that helps U of T students gain valuable work experience while they study. Over 3,500 students are hired annually through the Work Study program providing meaningful Work Integrated Learning.
The University will cover 70 per cent of this cost ($9.13/hour) while the hiring department is responsible for the remaining 30 percent ($3.91/hour). Please ensure you have this funding in place prior to submitting a job.
***There may be pending changes based on new proposed minimum wage requirements released by the Government of Ontario on May 30, 2017***
All applications will be collected through the CLN instead of individual email accounts to maximize the exposure of each posting
Each job posting can have up to four vacancies
The Work Study program is a great way for students to gain experience right on campus. While students benefit from the hands-on opportunity to apply their skills in a professional setting, staff and faculty are able to increase their output and learn new techniques from students on the cutting edge of their field.
“I had such a great experience through the work study program,” says Laura Philipps, who took a position at the George Ignatieff Theatre while pursuing her undergraduate degree. “It taught me basic workplace skills and improved my confidence by placing me in a leadership role. My boss assigned me tasks that added value to the organization and presented me with new challenges.”
The results of a Work Study survey revealed comments from students such as: “It was a great way to develop some of the skills I hope to use when I graduate. I highly recommend that other students take advantage of this opportunity.” Students consistently tell us that Work Study was a program in which they could grow and make decisions about how their studies relate to their career paths.
