In Here to Career, campus employers serve as mentors who instill the knowledge and competencies needed to ensure a successful career after graduation.
As on-campus student employee supervisors, it’s important to understand the key competencies for career readiness.
How we interact, train, assist and develop our student employees not only impacts the student, but the department they are working in. On-campus student employment can connect students to a future opportunity, foster working relationships and allow the student to participate in a collaborative, unique culture.
All of these initiatives ensure that these campus experiences fulfill our program mission to create college educated and career ready students.
Watching the students grow throughout their time here is really fun to watch. Many of them start out as timid freshmen and blossom into outgoing seniors."
