Purdue honors student employees April 10-16

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Purdue University community will recognize student employees for their contributions during National Student Employment Week on April 10-16.

Student Employment Services in the Division of Financial Aid at Purdue and the National Student Employment Association promote the week as a way to acknowledge the important role that student workers fulfill in their job positions. Employers are encouraged to recognize their students’ efforts during the week and let them know that they are valuable and important to their job site.

David Reseigh, student employment coordinator in Purdue’s Division of Financial Aid, said it is important to remember that student employees are reliable individuals with multiple skills, and, by using their earnings to contribute to their cost of education, they are investing in themselves.

It is important for both on- and off-campus employers to recognize the contributions of these talented student workers, Reseigh said. Student workers possess a wide range of job skills and knowledge from their coursework that make them a great benefit to their employers, he said. Federal work-study eligible students benefit both campus employers and local non-profit agencies as the government will subsidize a student’s wage, sometimes up to 100 percent in some specific work programs.

Purdue offers a variety of resources – including federal work study, job location and development, co-operative education, and internship opportunities – to bring student workers and employers together.
