Week set aside to recognize Purdue student employees
April 9, 2015
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The National Student Employment Association (NSEA) and Student Employment Services in the Division of Financial Aid, encourage employers within Purdue’s campus community to recognize their student employees’ contributions in the workplace during National Student Employment Week on April 12-18.
“This week of recognition is set aside annually for on- and off-campus employers to show their appreciation for their students' efforts by acknowledging the important role that student workers fulfill at their job site,” said David Reseigh, assistant director of outreach services in Purdue's Division of Financial Aid. “Student employees are reliable individuals with many talents and skills, and it is important to recognize them as a valuable asset by saying ‘Thank You’ to them for their efforts."
Purdue offers a variety of programs such as Federal Work-Study, co-operative education and internship opportunities to bring student workers and employers together.
"Both campus employers and local non-profit agencies can benefit from hiring Federal Work-Study eligible students as the government subsidizes the student's wage, sometimes up to 100 percent for some specific job programs," Reseigh said.
For more information about National Student Employment Week or the services offered to Purdue students and employers, contact Student Employment Services in Schleman Hall, Room 302, at 765-494-5056.
