National Student Employment Week- April 9- April 15, 2012

Each year Auburn University celebrates National Student Employment Week (NSEW), during the second full week of April. While student employment offers students career enhancing opportunities, they in turn make substantial contributions to the operation of the University and the local community. The Career Center encourages Auburn Univeristy departments, colleges and offices as well as Auburn/Opelika area businesses to celebrate student employee contributions during National Student Employment Week. NSEW enables us to thank Auburn students for the contributions they make as employees to the University and the surrounding community.
