Student Employment Essentials (SEE) Training

What is SEE Training?

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 immerse participants in all aspects of running a successful student employment office and provide a framework for you to sharpen existing skills and acquire new ones.

Expert trainers will provide you with well-researched, practical information you can apply immediately. For $189 per day, attendees will receive a broad range of important student employment information, access to experts in the field, the opportunity to share information with colleagues, a training manual, and a certificate of completion.

Training sessions are offered in each of NSEA's four regional organizations- WASEA, MASEA, NEASEA, and SASEA - throughout the year.

NSEA Membership is not required.
