Now’s a great time to nominate for Student Employee of the Year (SEOTY)!

The Student Employment Office is seeking nominations for the 2020 SEOTY competition. Take advantage of the break between semesters to submit a nomination for your outstanding student employee. The National Student Employment Association adjusted selection criteria for the program, so the form has changed from past years.  Nominees will now be evaluated according to eight career readiness competencies the National Association of Colleges and Employers identified (communication, digital technology, problem solving, professionalism/work ethic, intercultural fluency, career management, leadership, and teamwork). A special ceremony to recognize nominees and award winners will be held April 13, 2020.  Submissions are due February 14, 2020.  Please contact Allen Voelker (Student Employment and Scholarship Coordinator) at voelkera@uwgb.edu or 920-465-2556 with any questions.
