Student Employment

Student Work Experience

UW-Eau Claire places a strong emphasis on quality work experiences.  Over 3,400 student employment opportunities are available on-campus each year. A third of these positions are paraprofessional positions with job categories that include: instructional support, research, tutor, peer counselor, technology support, university outreach, and artist.

There are many reasons why students should consider working part time on-campus.  Studies show that students who work part time in college (20hours/wk or less) actually perform better academically and are more likely to stay in school than students who do not work at all.

Benefits of Student Work Experience include:

  • Developing marketable job skills
  • Applying academic skills in the "real" world
  • Connecting with the university
  • Increasing income to help offset college expenses (and reducing debt)
  • Boosting future career search by establishing references and gaining experience
