Student Employment

The Wells College Student Employment program is designed to provide financial assistance and hands-on work experience to the student through part-time employment. Internship positions (completed for school credit only) are also available for those interested. The available positions provide students with the opportunity to earn money or college credit, assisting with their college expenses while integrating classroom education with actual work experience.

The student employment program involves a part-time campus or community service job, which provides students valuable work experience to assist in their future goals. Sometimes jobs will be directly connected to a student's major, sometimes not; but in all cases, placements give students experience in a work situation that can be put on their resume. A student's supervisor is a potential reference when seeking employment after leaving Wells.
