FWT registration will occur online through the WorkLink system. All FWT jobs must be registered by November 22, 2013. (See FWT Handbook for more on the registration process and related policies.)
Access WorkLink: your username is your Bennington College email address. If you have not already set up a password, or have forgotten it, select “Forgot my Password” and WorkLink will send a new password to your email, which you can then change.
Once your logged into WorkLink, follow the shortcut to “Field Work Term.” Select the “Add New” and complete the online form. Students must complete a new form for each job they are registering. Detailed directions are available in the Document Library of WorkLink.
There will be workshops held in the fall explaining how to register online. Students can also stop by the FWT & CDO anytime for help.
Information Needed to Register
For every FWT job registration you must provide two things:
- Site and position information. Organization name and address, supervisor’s name, job title, telephone number, email address, job description, and your title. You will need to provide this for every job you have during FWT.
- Fit with your education at Bennington. Explain your learning objectives, what you will be doing, and how this fits into your educational goals at Bennington and how you will assess your personal success.
You will need to speak with your faculty advisor regarding your plans before registering. S/he will need to approve your plans online no later than the November 22 registration due date, so best to input your registration into WorkLink as early as possible and ensure s/he has time to approve your plans.
