Free time, sleeping late and home cooked meals are a few things students enjoy during summer and then miss when school starts. Among this list of underappreciated summer luxuries is the consistent income of a summer job.
To maintain an income to supplement weekend activities or just to get more involved at Trinity, students can apply for a variety of on-campus jobs.
â€œJust about all the departments have student workers,â€ said Maria Soto, human resources coordinator. â€œThe jobs are mostly clerical in all the departments, [including] art and art history, alumni relations, the business office and education.â€ Students employed by the university work 10 hours per week.
Soto says these jobs help students develop skills they can use in the future.
â€œThey get some knowledge of the corporate world that they can take with them, depending on
what area they will be pursuing,â€ Soto said.
Students of any class year can apply for jobs. Some require specific skills; however, others do not. Once hired, students must fill out an I-9 and W-4 form. Positions are posted on the human resources website, and students interested in applying should visit inside.trinity.edu/human-resources/employment-opportunities/student-positions.
