National Student Employment Week April 13-17

April 14, 2009

Student Employment Services would like to encourage employers to take this opportunity to thank their student employees for all of their contributions.

National Student Employment Week is celebrated across the nation during the first part of April.

Honor your student employees

As a part of this week, Student Employment Services encourages campus employers to recognize the work done by their student employees. Employers honor their student employees during this time in many ways:

  • taking the student employee out to lunch or coffee
  • luncheons or department banquets
  • certificates
  • thank you letters

The 2009 CSU Student Employee of the Year, Kate Quillin, is pictured above.

Students may register to win prizes

During the week of April 13-17, students may register on RAMweb for prizes donated by local employers.

More student employee recognition ideas

  • Treat Day - full-time staff bring in treats for student workers or take students out for an ice cream cone, coffee, or snack
  • Letters of Appreciation or Letters of Reference
  • Take photos - post student worker photos on the department bulletin board along with what great things they do for your department
  • Coupon booklets - design coupons for free soda, home-baked goodies, etc.
  • Notes home - send a note home to the families of your student workers to tell them how much they are appreciated, what they do, and how terrific they are
  • Certificates - buy or make low cost certificates and make up serious or silly awards and present them to your student employees
  • Friendship plants - take cuttings from an office plant and give to each student employee as a "live" connection to the office
  • Office decoration - make a banner or signs to hang in the office during National Student Employment Week, or decorate with a fun theme
  • Office pot luck meal - host an office pot luck with the student employees as guests of honor
