Managing Student Assistants

This workshop teaches participants how to get the best performance from their student workers.  Attendees will learn how to improve the quality of student assistants I their department.  Through a variety of exercises and discussions we will cover writing job descriptions, “selling” your job to prospective student assistants, financial aid basics, interviewing techniques, the importance of training, coaching & counseling and staff retention strategies.  While this course is primarily designed for academic libraries that employ work-study and regular students, I have also adapted it for Brooklyn Public Library’s professional intern program.  (Full Day)
