Job postings for the Ignite work-study program are now live, advises the Office of Career Development and Experiential Learning.
The program has transitioned to a wage subsidy model and is now open to all UWindsor students (some restrictions apply; view the Ignite website for details). New this year, supervisors will pay their students from their own departmental student casual wage accounts and will be reimbursed a subsidy of up to $1,250 or $2,500, depending on the length of the position.
Ignite funds part-time jobs on campus for students. Positions offer opportunity for financial benefits and aim to provide participants with expanded opportunities to build skills relevant to their career development.
Job proposals will be vetted and scored by an evaluation committee to determine which positions will be awarded funding. Successful positions that receive funding will be notified the week of August 20.
The deadline to submit a job proposal is July 27. All job proposals must be submitted through mySuccess — log in as UWindsor faculty/staff with your UWin ID at https://success.uwindsor.ca. Posted opportunities will be visible to approved students on September 4.
Program co-ordinator Sydney Murray encourages any faculty or staff member interested in posting an Ignite position to attend an information session on July 5 or 13 to learn about the program; register online. If you have any questions or concerns related to the new changes, please contact Murray at Sydney.Murray@uwindsor.ca or 519-253-3000, ext. 2577.
