Employing Middlebury Students this Summer

You may be thinking about employing a Middlebury College student to work in your department this summer. What a great opportunity for both you and the student! The student can learn important skills (or enhance those they already have) that they will use throughout their life – customer service, time management, conflict resolution, verbal and written communication skills, and so on.

The Student Employment Office Web page has been updated to reflect this summer’s procedures and policies: http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/business/seo/summer

Please familiarize yourself with these policies so you are well informed and can provide information to the student(s) you hire.
