Employment Information

Employment at Hekman Library is competitive. Self-motivation, attention to detail, and excellent customer relations skills are valued. We are looking for many different types of skills and experience, so give us a good description of who you are and what you can do. 

The best time to inquire about employment is during the month of August, then followed by the month of December. However, more than fifty students are employed, so vacancies occur at all times of the year. 

Your application will be routed to everyone on the library staff. Someone may contact you. Generally, we do not keep applications on file, so submit a new application in a few months if no one contacts you.

Thank you!
