Student Job Experience

The Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards regularly employs students to work alongside our staff. Having students helps ensure different perspectives are at our table and gives students the opportunity to have job experience. We know that students coming into our office can be intimidated and nervous, employing students helps relieve anxiety and promotes community.

We have three different opportunities for students to gain experience:

  1. Student Workers: These students are typically undergraduate students with a need for employment. Job expectations will include welcoming students at our front desk, filing electronic documents, answering phones, and providing assistance to our staff as needed. A person who is friendly, hard-working, and punctual would be a great candidate for this job. If you are interested in applying please go to One Stop and apply for a job.
  2. Practicum students: These students are typically graduate students wishing to have more experience in higher education. This is an unpaid internship designed to give you more experience and learning within the field. We focus more on giving you opportunities to learn and grow alongside our team. If you are interested in this opportunity please email hsamawi@utk.edu.
  3. Graduate Assistantships: These students are required to be graduate students who do not have another graduate assistantship. While this is an opportunity to learn, this is a job with higher expectations of performance. Job expectations will include 20 hours a week, working directly with students through educational conferences, maintaining excellent documentation, and more independence of duties. A person who is organized, hard-working, strength-based, has excellent verbal and written communication skills, and team-oriented would be a great candidate. Limited spots available each school year – if you are interested in this opportunity please email hsamawi@utk.edu.
