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:
- Go to studentjobs.byu.edu
- Click on “Student login”
- Click on “Apply for a Job/View Job Postings”
- Browse through all the jobs
To see all jobs posted for the Harold B. Lee Library:
- Press on “Department”
- This will put all departments in alphabetical order
- 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
