Student job fair offers opportunities for on-campus employment

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa students interested in on-campus employment for the fall 1998 semester are invited to attend a Student Job Fair from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, Aug. 28 in the Main Lounge of the Iowa Memorial Union.

The fair, sponsored by the University of Iowa Office of Student Financial Aid, will feature more than 50 employers offering on-campus part-time hourly positions and work-study positions at both on-campus and a limited number of eligible off-campus sites. More than 1,700 students attended the 1997 fair, and many received job offers or interviews that day.

The fair is an excellent opportunity for students interested in working to find out about the variety of jobs available on the University campus and at qualified off campus work-study sites, said Cindy Seyfer, assistant director in the Office of Student Financial Aid.

Staff from the Office of Student Financial Aid will be available to answer questions regarding employment options and to issue the necessary payroll paperwork for students who are hired that day. Students should bring a University I.D. card or driver's license for identification purposes for the payroll paperwork. In addition, students who will be employed for the first time on campus will need to complete a Form I-9, which requires a photo I.D. (UI or driver's license) and a birth certificate or Social Security card for identification purposes.

For more information about the fair, or about part-time or work-study job opportunities, contact the student employment area of the Office of Student Financial Aid at (319) 335-1460.

The Student Job Fair is one of a series of activities taking place during "A Hawkeye Hello!" This annual event has been extended from one to two "Weeks of Welcome" and is designed to welcome new students and help them become acquainted with campus and welcome returning students back to campus.
