Student employment provides an opportunity for UNM students, both with and without work study awards, a chance to earn some additional money in a job that is built around their class schedule.

For sophomore Jeb Pinckley, a physical education major, that is what his work study job in the Media Arts program production equipment cage provides. Pinckley works Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, and his responsibilities include checking multimedia equipment in and out to students enrolled in eligible media arts classes and all Interdisciplinary Film & Digital Media program classes.

The Cage, which is located in the Center for Environmental Research, Informatics & Art Building, provides everything from film reels to digital cameras for students to use. Pinckley began working at the Cage during his first semester at UNM in the Fall 2016 semester. Pinckley said when he is not helping students or organizing equipment, he is able to use that time to complete homework.
