Prospective Student Employees

Welcome to Shepherd University! Our student employees are an integral part of our daily operation. Through the Student Employment Office, employment opportunities are offered which support students’ educational and personal goals and help students achieve professional and personal development.

While working on campus, students have the opportunity to build their resumes, gain experience in the work place, and earn extra income. Inside Higher Ed reported that students who participate in a work-study program are more likely to graduate than their similar counterparts who don’t participate in the program.
