Student workers complete tasks that would ordinarily be completed by a temporary worker or a full-time entry level position.

The types of tasks student workers perform can be a mile wide or a mile deep. Some of the most common tasks include:

  • Office services
  • Marketing and business development
  • Accounting
  • Human resources
  • Information technology
