Student Jobs

Working in the Library

Thank you for your interest in student employment at the J. Paul Leonard Library. The Library is a pleasant work environment and is very popular with students seeking campus employment. We have a limited number of positions available each semester. Therefore, we encourage you to apply for other campus positions. For complete descriptions of available Library positions and other campus employment, please visit SF State Career Center.

Types of Jobs Available

Work Study Jobs (WS)

Work Study is a form of Federal Government Financial Aid and does not apply to International Students. You may earn up to, but not more than, the total Work-Study award on your Offer Letter. You must be enrolled full-time at SF State to be employed in a Work-Study position (12 units - undergraduates, 8 units - graduates).

Student Assistant Jobs (SA)

The Student Assistant program is NOT a financial aid program. It is funded by the State and provides part-time, on-campus positions available to students who are enrolled at least half-time at SF State (6 units - undergraduates, 4 units - graduates).

Work Eligibility Requirements

You must be able to provide eligibility documents before you can be hired.

These forms are available at the Office of Financial Aid (One Stop Student Services Building).

To Apply

Fill in the online application (please include the Job Number). Each job closes at "midnight" on application deadline date. Late applications will not be forwarded to hiring supervisor.

So, what happens after you apply? All applications received by midnight on the application deadline date are forwarded to the hiring supervisor. Due to the large number of applications received for each job opening, students will ONLY be contacted for an interview. The hiring supervisor will screen, interview, select and hire applicant.
