After reviewing all position proposals, a memorandum form will be sent to every employer confirming the approval or denial for funding of their position.

You, as the employer, will be coordinating follow-up interviews and selecting the best candidate for your position. Being approved for Work Study does not guarantee that your position will be filled, as it is dependent on the number of student applicants we receive and what their interests are.

Once you have decided on the student for the position, confirm your decision by contacting the student and workstudy@laurentian.ca. The student then needs to complete paperwork for the position, which is sent to them once approved for Work Study. Once all the completed employer and student forms have been submitted to Work Study, you will be notified that the hiring process is complete and the student can begin to work.
