It's important to recognize that Kennesaw State University student employees provide important services throughout our community and are a vital part of the college work force. Whether it is through the exposure to new environments or the enhancement of interpersonal skills through work experience, these part-time jobs serve as excellent resume builders. While not all jobs relate directly to students' ultimate career goals, the basic job skills and work ethics that are learned will contribute enormously to their overall career development and will prepare them for future internships and employment opportunities.
