San Francisco Living Wage Coalition

The Living Wage Coalition has a number of openings for WordPress development, Social Media specialist, and Web App and Small Office security guru.

The Living Wage Coalition is a non-profit that lobbies the Board of Supervisors and others at City Hall to increase the local minimum wage citywide. The main WordPress position will involve making new posts, maintaining the site, adding or updating widgets, and adding video and other new functionality.

They have recently launched a new site and a new social media campaign and need someone to use google analytics and other tools to drive traffic to the site.

They need a new security policy to address increased intern participation. Their server needs a scan and there are still some WordPress related security tasks to do.

If you are especially interested in serving the community through activism, want to network with other college students or like working with non-profits contact Sam!

Tutors Needed for CNIT Classes

Tutors are often needed for our classes, to work with students, helping them individually. We have an immediate need for a CNIT 106 tutor.

Video Recording CNIT Classes

We need help recording lectures and posting them on YouTube.

Lab Monitors for S214

Student monitors are needed to supervise the open lab.

Federal Work Study

Notes for students getting Federal Work Study payments:
  • You must go to Financial Aid and check your eligibility. It is a long and frustrating process to prove your eligibility. Most students just give up and never get the money, even if they are eligible.

  • Here are a couple of official CCSF student jobs pages, which may be of some use, although they seem inconsistent:
    Office of On- Campus Student Employment
    Student Jobs
  • You need to agree to the Sexual Harrassment Policy and a few other things--you can do them online in Web4.

    Before you can file an I-9 form, you will need a Student Employment Job Offer letter.

  • You must file an I-9 form at MUB 105 between 9 am and 11 am Mon-Fri, as indicated on this page:

  • You will have to take a TB test at Student Health Services, which will require two or three visits. Details are here:

  • I have been told at Financial Aid that if you have more than 90 college units, you are ineligible for Federal Work Study. However, you can file a petition to request an exception.

  • Normally, hours are recorded online, but that process is baffling and fails often, because they change the deadlines frequently. The pay periods and deadlines are on this page. However, that page is often inaccurate, and deadlines are often changed, always making them earlier.

  • When the online process fails, you'll need this paper timesheet. The one in the CCSF forms directory doesn't allow you to record evening work hours. You must fill in all the dates, and the starting and ending dates, and the pay period number. At the top right, you must check "Credit Work Study". The "Organization" is 7212. The program is 0700. If anything on this form is not filled in, the financial aid will reject it.

  • There seems to be no actual policy about the number of hours permitted per week, but financial aid seems to reject timesheets that record more than 15 hours per week.
