A position description is not just a requirement – it is an essential tool in setting up your expectations for the job and the expectations you have of your student employee. 

Position descriptions should establish job funtions, qualifications and learning outcomes.

Position descriptions also contain legal guidelines and compliance notices about EEO, the ADA, and Affirmative Action.  While no job description will cover every contingency, a well-planned description helps keep hiring on track. Please create your position description using the position description template provided. The following sample position description is available for your reference.
