Student Employees: What Do They Need To Be Successful?

Thursday, February 23 | 4:30PM–5:30PM | Galleria North, Ballroom Level
Session Type: Professional Development
IT departments have a long history of hiring students. The department, institution, students, and users benefit most from this practice when student employees are woven into the fabric of the IT community as full participants with job descriptions, performance reviews, training and professional development, and a clear path for growth and promotion. What are the key issues in training and keeping student employees? What can we do to make sure they succeed at what we ask them to do? Bring your best practices and lessons learned to this lively session.
