SPL to accept Student Assistant Program applications next month

Teens ages 16 and older are invited to learn about and apply to the Student Assistant Program at The Seattle Public Library.

The Student Assistant Program gives young people valuable work experience at the Library. Applicants must be enrolled in a school program, but may not yet have completed bachelor’s degrees. Students accepted into the program may participate for up to three years, or until they no longer qualify as students.

To apply, a student must complete an employment application, a cover letter, proof of school enrollment and a reference from an educator or employer (form included in the application). The application will be available online on Saturday, April 1.

Screening the application materials can take between four and six weeks following the application deadline. Throughout the application and screening process, students are welcome to log in to their online applicant profile and view their status in the recruitment process. Applicants are asked to check their status online before contacting Human Resources.

Eligible students will have until 5 p.m., Sunday, April 30, 2017 to apply. More details on how to apply will be posted on the Library Job Listings on Saturday, April 1.
