The Office of Student Employment is pleased to announce that we will be celebrating the 2nd Annual National Student Employment Week at WVU April 9 -15, 2017! 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. All supervisors are encouraged to take this opportunity during National Student Employment Week to thank their student employees and let them know that they are valued. We have included some tips for recognition.
