Job Opportunities for SBU full-time Students
Looking for full-time students at Stony Brook University who are native speakers of Japanese and are enthusiastic, creative, responsible, punctual, caring, open-minded, and interested in teaching Japanese to American children and adults. If you'd like to work, follow the following steps:
Step 1: Application
Please e-mail the director (Eriko Sato) with the following information. Then, the director will arrange an interview.
- Contact (email and telephone #)
- Major and academic standing (e.g. psychology, junior, etc.)
- Experience in teaching
- Future professional goal
- The reason why you are interested in this job
- How long did you live in Japan and how long have you been living in the US?
- Which region(s) in Japan did you live? (e.g. 10 years in Osaka; 7 years in Kyushu)
- How many semesters can you work for this program at Stony Brook?
- Do you have a social security card?
- Do you live on campus?
If you do not have a social security card, receive a letter that shows that you’ll be hired in the Pre-College Japanese Program from the director, and bring it to Visa and Immigration Services (http://www.stonybrook.edu/iaps/international/contact/). You will receive the instruction on how to apply for the social security card. It takes a few weeks to obtain the card after you apply for it. For more information about Social Security Card, visit: http://www.stonybrook.edu/iaps/international/ssa_info.shtml
Immediately after you receive a social security card, bring it to the registrar's office in the administration building on campus so your social security number can be added on the Solar system.
Step 3: Work, prepare I-9 & tax documents, and add hours on Solar
After you work, prepare I-9 and tax forms:
I-9 and tax forms:
Fill out the following documents, which are available on the wall at the Human Resource Services at Room 390 in the administration building (http://www.stonybrook.edu/hr/contact/):
- I-9 (employment eligibility verification) http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-9.pdf (You may want to fill in the date at the HR, because the date you add hours on Solar must be the same as the date you put on I-9).
- W-4 (Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate: Federal) http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw4.pdf?portlet=3
- IT-2104 (Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate: State) http://www.tax.ny.gov/pdf/current_forms/wt/it2104_fill_in.pdf
Add hours on Solar. See page 9 at:http://www.stonybrook.edu/finaid/pdfs/StudentEmploymentHandbook.pdf
Take the completed I-9 and tax forms to Human Resources (HR) at Admin 390 along with the supporting original identification documents for I-9 within 3 days after you add hours on Solar. Tell them that you are hired in the Pre-College Japanese Program as a student assistant (STATE), added hours on Solar, and need to have your I-9 verified and submit it along with tax forms. A staff member at HR will make a copy of your identification documents and return them to you right away. International students will have to bring their I-20 form also.
Step 4: Direct Deposit
After you receive the first check, apply for direct deposit within two weeks. http://www.stonybrook.edu/hr/misc/dd/state.shtml You’ll need to bring the paystub and your bank statement.
