The Emory WorkLife Resource Center is excited to introduce a new program called the Emory Employee-Student Job Network. The new program is a joint collaboration between the WorkLife Resource Center and the Emory University Career Center. It is designed to exclusively help Emory faculty and staff looking to hire Emory students to help them with work-life responsibilities such as babysitting, pet care, house sitting,lawn care, etc.
In the past, these types of arrangements were often met through informal means or online LISTSERVs and personal referral. Programs similar to this exist at other universities but tend to focus on mainly babysitting services. The program at Emory provides job opportunities to students interested in other types of part-time work. Having a program in place like this assists employees in finding part-time child care options and fill gaps in schedules where child care centers and after-school programs cannot. It will also help employees find reasonably priced help for things such as lawn care, house sitting and pet sitting. And for Emory students, it will be a way to put a little extra cash in their pockets.
Employees interested in hiring an Emory student for a work-life job can post their position on the job database at the Career Center for students to review and follow up. With the current state of our economy, this program will be useful to everyone and help create a central place to find such a linkage.
The WorkLife Resource Center will be promoting this job network with the assistance of The Emory University Career Center to help increase knowledge to both employees and students. This service is available to both Emory University employees as well as Emory Healthcare employees.
While this is a great opportunity for everyone at Emory, it is still important to always take proper safety precautions. Tip sheets have been created to help both employees and students at Emory and can be found at the Emory University Career Center and at the Emory WorkLife Resource Center.
If you have questions about this program, you may contact The Emory WorkLife Resource Center at (404) 727-8000 or The Emory University Career Center at (404) 727-6211.
The Emory Employee-Student Job Network serves only to link Emory employees and Emory students for the convenience of managing work-life responsibilities. Neither Emory University nor the Emory University Career Center screens or recommends students who are available to provide services nor makes any endorsement as to the students’ qualifications. Emory University and the Emory University Career Center only guarantee that candidates are currently registered Emory students. In addition, Emory University makes no representations to Emory students as to the nature of the needed services or the potential employers other than that they are current Emory faculty, staff or students. Hired students are considered employees or contractors of the person requesting the services and not employees or contractors of Emory.
Students and employees acknowledge that, for the benefit of participating in the Employee-Student Job Network, they release, covenant not to sue, and forever discharge Emory and its trustees, officers, and agents of and from any and all claims, losses, demands, rights, and causes of action of whatever kind or nature, including but not limited to negligence, unforeseen bodily and personal injuries, damage to property, and the consequences thereof, resulting from participation in, or the services obtained from, the Employee-Student Job Network.
