How To Find A Library Student Job

How to Find a Student Job

All library student positions are required to be posted online at studentjobs.byu.edu

Most job openings occur within the month preceding the start of a new semester. During these times, because job listings may only stay open on the website for 4-8 hours, we recommend that you check the website multiple times a day.

Below are instructions for creating and using a jobs.byu.edu account:

  1. Go to studentjobs.byu.edu
  2. Click on “Student login”
  3. Click on “Apply for a Job/View Job Postings”
  4. Browse through all the jobs

To see all jobs posted for the Harold B. Lee Library:

  1. Press on “Department”
  2. This will put all departments in alphabetical order
  3. Scroll down to all listings in the “Lee Library” department

This will bring up all jobs associated with the Harold B. Lee Library (as well other on-campus libraries).

Increasing Your Chance to Be Hired

The following are helpful tips to get a student job at BYU

  • Have a class schedule that allows for blocks of time available for work, such as:
    • 8:00AM – 12:00 noon M-F
    • 1:00-5:00 PM M-F
    • Blocks of 2+ hours together between 8:00 – 5:00 M-F
  • Check the job board daily
    • Be sure to read and follow application instructions
    • Revise resume to highlight qualifications that pertain to each specific job
    • Make sure application reflects the job you are applying for accurately
  • The library hires the most students between August 1 and 15, and at the end of other semesters
