Spring Quarter Career Resources
During Spring Quarter, you’ll continue to have access to personalized career advising, opportunities to interact with employers, and hands-on experiences to help you build your resume. These resources include:
Guidance for Spring On-Campus Positions
The Provost has announced the University’s plan to support students who hold hourly Federal Work-Study or non-Work-Study jobs for Spring Quarter.
We encourage those students who have secured hourly jobs for Spring Quarter to discuss with their supervisors ways in which they can conduct their jobs or other needed work remotely. Students with hourly jobs who are able to work remotely will be paid as previously agreed upon with their supervisors based on hours worked.
In the event that students are unable to work remotely, the University will help mitigate the impact by making a payment equivalent to six weeks of pay based on projected hours indicated by the supervisor.
If remote work is not possible or the position can’t move forward as planned, Career Advancement is also happy to help students find another opportunity – please schedule an appointment with a career adviser through UChicago Handshake.
Students who are paid by lump-sum stipends should check in with their supervisor or the appropriate grant program administrator with questions about funding.
Students with research stipends may continue their research remotely, or transfer their research to the Fall.
Remote Student Employment Policies
- The online Student Employment Orientation will continue to be required for new student employees.
- Students working remotely are still permitted to work up to 20 hours per week during the Spring Quarter.
- Students who would like to petition for additional hours should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
