Onboard Students

As you shift your onboarding and training program to being remote, be sure to think through health and safety considerations. Establish clear expectations, structures, and relationships. Seek relevant development workshops for both you and your students.

The Hiring Students Toolkit helped me be more confident and effective working remotely with student staff this summer and helped them feel more engaged and connected to our office. With these resources and workshops, I’m looking forward to hiring a new student to support our office this fall
