Can I require the student to complete an application form?
Clearly stating your expectations during the interview and hiring process may alleviate work place conflicts and confusion in the long run. Departments, both on and off-campus, have the right to use a FWS job application form. Some departments on campus already use an application form and find it helpful during the hiring process.
Starting with the 2011/2012 award year, the Financial Aid Office will provide departments with a FWS applicant assessment form which asks general information, like a list of references, past employment history, and a statement on why the applicant is interested in the position. It’s included on the Job Acceptance form and you can decide whether or not you use it. Its completion is not mandatory, rather it’s meant to help you during the hiring decision.
