Work In The Music Department
The Department, on occasion, may have openings for student positions within the department: office workers, music libraries, and ushers/stagehands. Ushers/stagehands put in the majority of their hours on evenings and weekends according to their availability.
Due to budgetary constraints, we attempt to hire the majority of our student workers from those who have been awarded work study money. If we cannot acquire enough employees with work study eligibility, we will consider hiring those students in the Student Assistant category so that all positions will be filled.
Please apply for jobs using Handshake. We ask that you also submit our Student Application Form. It should be uploaded to Handshake at the time you apply, or emailed to email@example.com. We will also accept via fax to (920) 424-1266 or mailed to the UW Oshkosh Department of Music, Attn: Student Employment, 800 Algoma Blvd., Oshkosh, WI 54901.
Please fill out the application above for all positions. See Handshake for full job descriptions.
