Each year colleges and universities across the country recognize the importance of the student work experience during National Student Employment Week. Student employment offers students career-enhancing opportunities, the ability to develop skills relevant in any career, and better preparation for the job market upon graduation.
Of course, a primary motivation for most students is the need to help pay for their education. Many students are able to earn a significant portion of their college expenses, thus avoiding the debt burden so common with college graduates today.
At the University of Findlay, student employees perform invaluable services with enthusiasm, dedication, and initiative. Indeed, our departments depend on the contributions of this reliable workforce for the efficient operation of the entire campus. It is appropriate to set aside a special week to draw the awareness of others, both on campus and off, to the contributions student workers make in the multitude of roles they fill.
By celebrating this week, we hope to increase employer awareness of the services that student employees provide; increasing employer base and positions available for students, and providing open recognition for their outstanding work.
April 5 to April 9 2021
National Student Employment Week is April 5 through April 9. To help supervisors recognize their student employees for all they do for us on campus, Student Employment is helping to sponsor a gift for the student employees on campus. This year, Student Employment has selected a 24 oz water bottles with “My Boss Thinks I'm Awesome" decal and is available for all supervisors to order for their student employees. The water bottle will also include some candy and a card inside. Each bottle will cost the department 1.70 each and the Student Employment office will sponsor the remaining cost.
Bottles will be ready for pick up during National Student Employment Week and you will be notified by email when they are available to be picked up. Please complete the order form below to take advantage of this year's student employee appreciation gift. All orders must be submitted by March 10. No orders will be excepted after the deadline.
