Each year over 2,600 Creighton students help meet their educational expenses by working here at Creighton, both through the Federal Work Study program and University funded employment.
Student employees serve in a wide variety of positions from intramural referees at soccer games to research assistants in Health Sciences labs. The person who answers the phone when you call a campus department is often a Creighton student. The friendly face you see when approaching a receptionist’s desk is often a student worker. They escort you to your car when it’s late at night, watch over your toddler in the Child Care Center, put your library books back on the shelves, sort your mail and monitor the safety cameras in the parking lots. They file your chart when you are seeking treatment in the Dental Clinic or the Medical Center. And don’t forget, that personality behind Billy Bluejay is a student worker.
This office is excited to announce that a series of student job skills training modules have recently been developed and are available for student employees through Creighton BlueLine. This will be a great tool to make your training process more comprehensive. You can direct your students to complete the modules during their job orientation process.
Currently there are 5 modules. More are in the works. Topics so far include:
The Course in BlueLine is called “Student Employment Job Skills training”.
You as the supervisor will be able to track which of your students have completed the on-line training. You will need an invitation from BlueLine directing you to register as “Instructional Assistant” for the course “Student Employment Job Skills Training”. You will not have any teaching duties; this step gives you access to the system so you can begin viewing your students’ training completion. If you would like an invitation or have questions about BlueLine Call 402-280-3428 or email Kathy Craig.
If you would like to brush up on your job skills, you can self-enroll in the Student Employment Job Skills Training course on BlueLine. https://blueline.instructure.com/enroll/KB8KFF
