Student Employment Overview

  • Student employment is a WIN for both the student and the employer.   The student employee benefits from the additional financial resources and an opportunity to develop skills for future employment.  The employer benefits from a creative and motivated workforce.

    Student employment provides students with career-enhancing opportunities, the ability to develop skills relevant to any majors, and the necessary preparation and assistance for competitive job markets.  While you may think working as a student will take time away from your academics, studies show that students who work 20 hours or less per week statistically do better in school on average than their non-working peers (Noel-Levitz, 2010). Also, students who are “connected” to campus report a higher satisfaction with their college life, graduate in higher numbers, and graduate more quickly.
