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 and design many of the Creighton web pages to view. And don’t forget, that personality behind Billy Bluejay is a student worker.



Brendan Gernes, Senior Arts and Sciences student, has been selected the Creighton Student Employee of the year.  Mason Harmon is his nominating supervisor.  Brendan has worked in the Office of Development Phonathon for the past 4 years.  Following his graduation in May, he plans to do a year of volunteer service in South America.

All nominees will receive a letter of commendation from Fr. Hendrickson.  Brendan will receive a $1000 scholarship at a luncheon in his honor.  Runners up Serenity McAndrews (SPAHP)  and Catherine Pedigo (University Archives)  will receive $250 scholarships.

National Student Employment Week April 09 - 15, 2017

Recognizing Student Employee Contributions

"Each year colleges and universities across the country recognize the importance of the student work experience during National Student Employment Week. Student employment offers students career-enhancing opportunities, the ability to develop skills relevant in any career, and better preparation for the job market upon graduation. Of course, a primary motivation for most students is the need to help pay for their education. Many students are able to earn a significant portion of their college expenses, thus avoiding the debt burden so common with college graduates today. On their campuses, student employees perform invaluable services with enthusiasm, dedication, and initiative. Indeed, most schools depend on the contributions of this reliable workforce for the efficient operation of the entire campus."

" It is appropriate to set aside a special week to draw the awareness of others, both on campus and off, to the contributions student workers make in the multitude of roles they fill."

Job Skills training info for supervisors

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:

  •  Confidentiality
  •  Customer Service
  •  Dress Code/Attendance/Reporting work hours
  •  Work Accuracy

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”.
