For the newly promoted student employment administrator, SEE Training offers all the information you need to hit the ground running. For the experienced administrator, SEE Training offers a chance to gain powerful new insights and perspectives on the essentials of student employment.
A National Student Employment Associations’ survey indicates that the majority of professionals in student employment have been at their jobs only 1 to 3 years, and many were thrust into the position from their work as financial aid administrators, career counselors, or personnel administrators. With little preparation, and new to the field of student employment, many feel ill-equipped to run the programs of which they find themselves in charge. Now you have a resource.
Student Employment Essentials consists of two one-day, professional seminars that will teach you the skills critical to the success of every student employment professional as well as to your university's student employment program. These "hands-on" workshops will immerse you in all aspects of running a successful student employment office and provide a framework for you to sharpen existing skills and acquire new ones. Both sessions are designed to stand alone; it is not necessary to attend one before attending the other.
Who should attend?
Student Employment Administrators
Financial Aid Advisors
Human Resource Coordinators
Student Affairs Professionals
Business and Agency Representatives
Anyone interested in student employment issues
Attend this professional workshop and learn the foundations of effective student employment
programs. Our expert trainers will provide you with well-researched, practical information you can apply immediately. And the value is unbeatable—for the small cost you'll get a wide range of important student information, access to an expert, lunch, the opportunity to share information with colleagues, the training manual, and a Certificate of Completion.
What you'll get from each track:
Review of Fair Labor Standards Act, IRS rules and ADA compliance
Crucial information on interviewing students for jobs
Regulations concerning employing international students
FERPA, I9s and W4s
Department of Education guidelines for Federal Work-Study
Tools for setting up, promoting, reporting, and maintaining a successful Job Location & Development Program
Marketing techniques to bring in more jobs and more students
Methods for training supervisors
Help in setting up FWS Community Service program, developing jobs, and maintaining employer relations
Steps for reporting the FWS Community Service requirement, calculating earnings using program models from other schools
With both sessions, you will also receive an extensive training manual with examples and resources from universities around the nation. These are small "hands-on" sessions, & space is limited.
