The form for requesting student employees requires a significant amount of information, and some of the terms may be confusing. Below, the Office of Human Resources has defined several of the terms used in the form to ease any confusion.
Keep this short and avoid titles or terms that are gender specific.
The department defines where the student will be employed (i.e., Hobart Athletics) and what account number the job will be charged to. Location defines where the job duties will actually be performed (i.e., Sport & Rec Center).
The Job Supervisor is the person to whom the student employee reports to and receives performance evaluations from. You must provide all contact information (title, office building, phone, fax and e-mail) for the supervisor.
The person(s) who is/are authorized by the student’s supervisor to approve and sign timesheets in the absence of the supervisor.
Create a summary statement of the main tasks of the job or expected outcomes in a few sentences.
Above all, it is important that supervisors KEEP JOB DESCRIPTIONS UP-TO-DATE! You should review job descriptions at every opportunity- new appointment, performance review and salary/wage review.
