  • Description

Whether a volunteer, intern, work-study student or part-time employee, students can be a valuable part of the library’s staff. With their benefits, however, come unique challenges. Kimberly Burke Sweetman, a frequent presenter of management workshops, shares practical guidance for making the most of students in your organization.

She examines the basics: building the case for student workers in your library, designing the position, drafting the job description, and preparing for the hiring process; then walks you through advertising the position, recruiting the right candidates, and interviewing effectively. Here is the practical advice you need to recruit, hire, orient and train student workers -- as well as motivate and coach them appropriately, to minimize turnover. This guide is filled with examples, checklists, forms, templates, and exercises.
