Hire a student: Campus employment program is alive and well at York University

Student Financial Services is issuing a call for position requests for Summer 2013 College Life at York (CLAY), York Engaged Students (YES), Research at York (RAY) and Work/Study programs.

There are numerous on-campus employment opportunities for York undergraduate students to earn extra money, gain valuable experience and contribute to University life.  The Work/Study family of student employment opportunities encompasses the following categories:

  • The RAY program enhances the research culture of the University and the undergraduate student academic experience. Students can gain valuable research experience from faculty or senior/graduate students while receiving compensation at a competitive rate.
  • York University’s Work/Study program provides on-campus part-time job opportunities for eligible full-time York University students. The program is available at both Keele and Glendon campuses and offers a broad range of jobs from many different Faculties and departments.
  • CLAY focuses on enhancing the student experience within the college system.
  • The YES program supports high-profile contributions and engagement activities on campus that are focused on such things as peer mentoring, ambassadorship and advising.

Undergraduate students are eligible to apply for summer positions if they:

  • are Canadian citizens, permanent residents or protected persons;
  • are Ontario residents;
  • are registered full-time in the summer (minimum 60 per cent course load or 40 per cent for students with disabilities) or have been registered full-time in the Winter 2013 term (as indicated above) and will be returning full-time in the Fall/Winter 2013-2014 session;
  • demonstrate financial need, via the Student Financial Profile;
