In coordination with The Edge, all student workers will be required to upload an existing resume or complete building a resume via The Edge Career Connector to prepare for their future. Students will be provided with directions on how to begin this process when they complete their Student Employment Authorization Form from the Financial Aid Office. A member of The Edge team will review all resumes submitted and approve those that are deemed acceptable. Those students whose resume needs refining will be contacted by an Edge team member to schedule a one-on-one meeting for further assistance.

Federal Work Study and College Funded Work Study Job Programs

Federal Work Study is federally funded and is awarded to students demonstrating financial need. Students having no financial need may participate in the College Funded Work Study Program. These student wages are paid from R-MC department budget allocations.

Students may work up to 20 hours per week during the school year. Hours are flexible based on the student's schedule. The average student works 10 hours per week. Students are paid monthly and checks are written to the students - the money earned is not automatically applied toward tuition. All jobs are classified into four categories: unskilled, skilled, highly skilled and paraprofessional.

Students who have never worked on campus must provide ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS as are required by law for verification of new employee Identity and authorization to work in the United States. To see a list of all acceptable documents go to Accepted Documents.

All students who work for R-MC are required to have a Social Security number for payroll purposes.

Student Employee grievances should adhere to the policy on Student Complaints in the Academic Catalog (p.174) and The Student Handbook (pg. 13).
