The 2010 census data paints a bleak financial picture for recent graduates, and as the recession lingers, it's clear that many of the students enrolled at your institution will be graduating into a very difficult market. There has rarely been a better time to conduct an aggressive rethinking of your on-campus employment opportunities.

We reached out to Brett Perozzi, the associate vice president for student affairs at Weber State University and a key thinker and innovator on this issue, to learn more about how on-campus employment opportunities can be structured well to enhance student learning and prepare students well for entry into their future careers.

Perozzi offered us advice on these four items:

  • Being intentional in who you involve when planning employment opportunities across a division
  • Defining learning outcomes for your on-campus employment opportunities
  • Offering targeted training programs that focus on the learning outcomes and on career development
  • Assessing the effectiveness of your on-campus employment programs
