We have a number of student staff positions available during the summer and the academic year. Please review the list of job descriptions below to see which positions fit your interests and use the link at the bottom of the page to submit your application.
To be eligible for a position in the Thrive Center, you must have completed two semesters of coursework before fall 2019 AND you must currently have a 2.5 cumulative GPA or higher from the University of Arizona. You are also expected to maintain a 2.5 GPA or higher through this semester (spring 2019) and during your employment with Thrive Center next academic year.
We prefer to hire students with federal work-study, but if you do not have work-study, or are not eligible to apply for federal financial aid, you may still be eligible to earn a position.

Our application process is simple. Just answer the questions in our online application, and upload a resume and letter of interest to complete your application. Then hit submit.
For many students, this application will be their first time applying for work. Excellent! If you have never created a resume or letter of interest, the office of Student Engagement & Career Development offers a number of resources to help you get started.
You can submit your application materials using the link at the bottom of this page.
After you apply, your application will be reviewed and you may be invited for an individual and group interview. You will register for both interviews at the same time.
We use a multiple-mini-interview approach for our individual interviews. This means you will meet with three different staff members, for about 7 minutes each, answering questions or working through a scenario that will help us understand your fit with Thrive Center. Interviews are 30 mins total, with a 15-minute overview session before.

If you are invited to interview, we will provide you with additional details and guidelines to help you prepare. Whether this is your first time interviewing or not, we highly recommend reviewing the resources available to you as a student through Student Engagement & Career Development.
