Parents can assist students in finding employment and academic balance and in succeeding in the workplace.
Three major ways that parents can assist their students are:
1. Help to ensure your student has the necessary documentation and identification to complete mandatory employment forms. Please refer to our FORMS page to see what forms are required and what documentation is needed to complete the paperwork. Students must fill out this paperwork within three days of beginning employment. Please note, this paperwork cannot be completed until the student has secured a job.
2. Encourage your students to explore employment options while maintaining balance with their academics. On average students work eight to ten hours per week, however balance is the key and individual work commitments will vary from student to student.
3. Talk to your students about their work. By exploring career paths now, many students are able to identify future goals. While maintaining employment provides positive financial benefits, the experience also assists students as they explore the myriad of options ahead.
Parents may feel free to reach out to us at The Student Employment Office or by calling (603) 646-3641.
