Hire New Student Process

  • Coordinate with the Department Head to receive approval for the position.
  • Use the instructions in the Hire Student Worker article to enter information in Workday. These steps will differ depending whether or not the student has previously been hired for any WPI position.
  • Review and approve the information entered. The request will then go to the HR Partner for approval.
  • A Workday account will be created for student’s first job once all approvals are completed.
Note:
An I-9 form task in Workday and ID verification must be completed within three business days of the student’s hire date.
