Student Hiring

Summer 2024 and Fall 2024 Applications for Part-Time, Hourly, Student Assistant Positions at the CDL NOW OPEN!

Coming Soon:  Fall 2024 Applications for Student Internships at The Playing Field (TPF)

 

As part of the CDL’s Teaching mission, we are devoted to training and working with undergraduate and graduate students who are eager to apply their knowledge of child development to the field.  We have three different student positions to offer: CDL Student Assistant, CDL Intern, and The Playing Field Intern (funded by the Oscar Rennebohm Foundation as part of a paid HDFS internship experience).

Please see the CDL-2024-Calendar-for-EC-Interns-SAs for more details about the hiring timeline, orientation, and spring/summer/fall sessions.

New student applicants are hired by considering the following factors:

  1. Your availability to work at the CDL meets the work schedules offered for the position(s) you are applying.
  2. Your ability to continue working at the CDL for more than one semester/session.
  3. You have prior experience working with young children that matches the needs of the CDL classrooms.
  4. You have already taken the courses required for childcare licensing to work in a childcare program.
  5. If you are applying to an infant classroom, priority will be given to candidates who have completed HDFS 501/464:  Infant/Toddler Dev & Group Care prior to the session for which they are applying.

*Note: HDFS majors are prioritized over non-HDFS majors if everything else is equivalent.

*Current CDL or TPF Interns and current CDL Student Assistants (SAs) who have received positive evaluations by their supervisors this semester will be prioritized over new applicants applying for the same roles & schedules (as continuity of care is important for the children and families).  Your availability must also meet the needs of the program (see schedules below).
