Student Employment in the Midst of COVID-19

If you missed the webinar, you can view it here.

NSEA is hosting a free webinar to support universities in the midst of COVID-19. Join us for a panel of five student employment professionals who are willing to share their knowledge and best practices regarding what their universities have done/are doing to support their student employment programs in the midst of uncertain and ever-changing circumstances. For some student employment professionals, this may be their first time balancing both federal regulations with university policy along with the demand to quickly adapt, inform, and educate both student employees and supervisors in the midst of a crisis. This panel is designed to provide support to professionals who are seeking ideas and resources, while also providing a space to ask questions that may be specific to the challenges their university is facing.

The panel will take place on April 22nd from 2:00-3:00pm EST and will be over zoom.

Building Partnerships with Off-Campus Employers

When we think of student employment, we often think of on-campus work, but we can’t forget that many of our students work off-campus in part-time roles as well. Given this, building and maintaining partnerships with off-campus supervisors and employers is an important part of our work. In this webinar, you will learn some new strategies for making connections with off-campus employers and how to maintain those relationships for the benefit of our students.

Making Connections: Reflective Conversations - Elizabeth Wormsbecker & Renee Houston, Ph.D

The University of Puget Sound

Student education is a shared enterprise and supervisors of students, whether in an employer-based internship program or an institution with on-campus employment, are in a unique position to mentor and contribute to students’ learning and success. Through intentional reflection on their experiences at work, students can recognize their growth and build on skills, realize that their work matters, exhibit energy to identify opportunities to utilize their talents, and feel validated by recognizing the impact they have.

A program of brief, structured, reflective conversations between students and their supervisors can be simple and flexible enough for integration within a variety of work environments and can even be adapted for new environments and ways of working required during this global pandemic. The University of Puget Sound was the recipient of the NACE 2019 Career Services Excellence Award in the small schools category for the Compass Puget Sound program that supports student and staff development by engaging in a series of structured, reflective conversations. We will introduce this flexible reflective conversation program and provide advice on processes for creating your own version of reflective conversations that fit your particular environment.

Reflective conversations fit into work with students in a variety of ways and make an incredible difference in what the student gains from their experiences. Beyond supporting student development, these conversations encourage students to recognize the importance of their contributions in the job or internship and increase their level of engagement in their employment. We’ve seen reflection have an incredible impact on students’ experience and also benefit departments who’ve adopted regular and intentional reflective conversations
