Student Employment Essentials (SEE) Training

What is Student Employment Essentials (SEE) Training?
Student Employment Essentials Training consists of two one-day, professional seminars that will teach you the skills critical to the success of every student employment professional as well as to your university's student employment program. These "hands-on" workshops immerse participants in all aspects of running a successful student employment office and provide a framework for you to sharpen existing skills and acquire new ones.

Expert trainers will provide you with well-researched, practical information you can apply immediately. The value is unbeatable, registration may be low as $189 (depending on location), and you'll get a wide range of the most important student employment information, access to an expert, lunch, the opportunity to share information with colleagues, a training manual, and a Certificate of Completion.

Training sessions are offered in each of NSEA's four regional organizations, Western, Midwest, Northeast, and Southern - throughout the year.
