Before the beginning of each semester, student part-timers are hired by various departments. The hiring process for this semester was done on March 2nd. All students can apply for positions if they meet the qualifications which are: to have a 2.0 GPA or higher, have acquired more than 6 credits, and have taken less than 8 semesters so far. A number of students apply for these jobs because they don’t affect class time as much as part-time work outside the university.
However, since there is a limited number of positions, there's a low chance to be selected. For these reasons, many students wonder about the criteria and how to get employed. Also, among those who who have had positions before, most get re-hired, so it seems that job experience is very important.

An anonymous student in the College of Social Science said, “I’ve applied for the same department for two years but I saw some cases that someone who has a relatively low GPA or someone who worked for the department got selected.” Jeong Min-ji in the Office of Student Affairs said, “My department selects the ones who meet the minimum qualifications and sends the list to all departments. The final selection is actually up to each department. There is a tendency that departments select those who have work experience in their department because they have the knowledge and ability regarding the tasks." For this point, there needs to be a compromise between students who regard this as unfair and the departments which need to improve equal opportunity.
