Prospective employers contact supervisors for references, therefore, it is advantageous for the student to be a conscientious, dependable employee.
With approximately 2,300 Regular Student Employees and almost 250 Federal Work-Study Employees working on campus, student employees play a significant role in the day-to-day functioning of Western Illinois University. Student employees perform a wide range of duties from general office assistance to those duties requiring highly specialized training in such areas as computer programming and accounting. The wages paid to Regular Student Employees and Federal Work-Study Employees account for over 2.4 million dollars of the WIU payroll. Student employees cannot be used to displace regular, non-student employees.
