National Student Employee Week
Each year, the National Student Employment Association (NSEA) declares a week in April to be National Student Employment Week. While student employment offers students career enhancing opportunities, they in turn make substantial contributions to the operation of the university.
Career Success encourages departmental supervisors, their departments, and colleges or divisions to celebrate student employee contributions during National Student Employment Week.
