Work Study: Get Started!

Work Study: Get Started!

Welcome to the work-study program! To get started please review the steps below.

After you completed the training and review the resources, you will ready to take your annual quiz.

Once you have passed your annual quiz with 100% you will be ready to begin searching for and applying for jobs.

You will login to the JobX student portal to search for positions that may interest you, and apply for consideration.

Once hired you will meet with your employer’s HR Officer to complete four
benefits enrollment processes:

  • I‐9 Verification
  • Federal Payroll withholding (for federal taxes)
  • NC Payroll withholding (for state taxes)
  • Direct Deposit Enrollment (may not be required for off‐campus positions)

You will need to provide certification documents for the I‐9 process. You can find a full list of acceptable documents here.

On or before the first day of work:

  • If you are working on-campus you will meet with your supervisor to complete University‐required training on the TIM system, which you will use to log your work hours for payroll purposes
  • If you are working off‐campus you will be trained on job‐specific systems.

You will also be provided with any required training on topics such as confidentiality,
workplace safety, or material handling. Supervisors will also use this time to help you become better acquainted with your workplace and duties. This usually includes:

  • Tours of the workplace
  • Introduction to coworkers
  • Training on workplace equipment
