Student workers play a critical role in Clark University’s campus operations, from staffing the ITS Help Desk to hosting tours, providing critical office support, and much more. On-campus employment is also a great way for Clarkies to prepare for their career goals and gain real-world experience while still in college.
Beginning April 10, Clark will recognize the hard work, energy, and dedication that our student workers bring to their jobs during National Student Employment Week.
“Working on campus is an important part of a student’s career journey. Regardless of their job — whether they are a proctor in a building, a Help Desk technician, or a social media assistant — they are learning valuable, career-building skills such as time management, professionalism, and communication,” says Julie Bolduc, director of Clark’s Office of Student Employment. “Hopefully, they are also learning about their motivations and preferences, including what type of work environment is important to them.”
The Office of Student Employment has planned events throughout the week — and every time a student attends, they are entered into a raffle. A number of local businesses contributed generous raffle prizes, including Holy Poke, Nu Kitchen, the Piercing Emporium, Six Flags, Table Talk Pies, The Hanover Theatre, Wegman’s, and Central Rock Gym. Events include:

National Student Employment Week (NSEW) is celebrated every second week of April, and is dedicated to highlighting student employment practices across colleges and universities that help undergraduate students develop invaluable practical skills and, importantly, pay for their tuition expenses. Sponsored by the National Student Employment Association, NSEW is designed to honor students and their employers and to encourage university/college campuses to develop career-enhancing opportunities, increase participation, and celebrate their employed student body.
