Celebrate Your Student Employees


National Student Employment Week takes places on April 13-17, 2020.

Show your appreciation for all the hard work and support your student employees provide for you and your office! Since we are unable to celebrate in person this year, we have provided a few ideas to show appreciation to your student employees during this week. Or use your own creative ideas.
