Position Description

In addition to general workplace expectations, the College establishes position descriptions to set expectations for specific positions. Each position description contains the following information: department name, position title, assigned work hours per week, WLS Levels, itemized description of duties, list of learning opportunities, and outline of basic and desirable qualifications.

Position descriptions are prepared by each department in consultation with the Labor Program Office. Copies are centrally maintained for all departments, and a new draft must be submitted whenever a department upgrades an existing position description or creates a new one. All students should be familiar with their individual position descriptions so that they understand the position’s expectations and opportunities. This aids in establishing good work habits and in developing language for resumes and position interviews on campus and job interviews off campus.
