Each year Auburn University celebrates National Student Employee Appreciation Week, during the second full week of April. While part-time jobs offer students career enhancing opportunities, students as employees 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 Student Employee Appreciation Week. Student Employee Appreciation Week enables us to thank Auburn students for the contributions they make as employees to the University and the surrounding community.
