Position Descriptions

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I work at CLUE if I am no longer a student?

-No, CLUE is only hiring UW undergraduate students (those who will be students for the school year hired).

What is the application/hiring timeline and process?

-We hire the bulk of our positions in spring quarter for the next academic year. 

There is a Catalyst link to be filled out and materials to submit to a drop box.

We will look through applications and select the top candidates to interview. We will notify everyone about whether they received an interview or not. Interviews will be conducted during spring quarter after the application closes. We will then notify interviewees if they are hired or not. If hired, we will collect some information/paperwork to have the candidate begin shadowing current tutors.

If a position becomes available throught the year, we will post and take applications at that time but that would be an exception. 

Can I apply for more than one subject?

-Yes, but you need to submit separate applications for each subject. You cannot be hired to work more than one subject. If you are selected to interview for more than one subject, you may find out if you were hired for one subject before interviewing for the second subject. You will need to decide if you prefer that first subject and drop out of interviews for the second subject or decline the first subject and interview for the second, not knowing if you will get the position. 

How do I know if I qualify?

-Read through the position description to see what the required courses and requirements are for each of the positions.

How much do I get paid?

-That depends on your level of education. Full-time undergraduate students are paid $13.87, full-time graduate students are paid $18.90
