Who can apply:

Anyone currently enrolled at UW-Madison. If you will be enrolled in the Fall Semester, you do not need to enroll in the Summer Session to qualify for summer employment.

When to apply:

Most student jobs are available during Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters. If you get an interview, bring along your class schedule or a list of times you will be free to work.

Qualifications:

Previous library work is helpful but not necessary. Libraries are usually looking for skills in working with people, typing, foreign languages, computers, filing, or audio-visual equipment. You also should have flexible hours and good work habits. Most libraries prefer to hire work study students but welcome applications from all eligible students.
