The Career Pathing Program is an enhanced Student Employment Program. The Program came about as a result of a collection of research. Northwest conducted its first Student Employment Satisfaction Survey in 2003. The survey results, along with research conducted by a Marketing Research Class Project, initiated the development of the Career Pathing Program. The Career Pathing Program addresses the needs of students to advance the development of student skills and build connections in the workforce.
Student employees have the opportunity to advance to a new level of pay and responsibility once they have completed the specified criteria.
|Level I||Student Employee||Starting Salary||$7.65|
|Level II||Student Assistant||Increase of $0.25||$7.90|
|Level III||Student Associate||Increase another $0.25||$8.15|
|Level IV||Student Manager||Increase another $0.25||$8.40|
The Student Employment Satisfaction Survey was implemented to enhance student employment at Northwest by gaining insight into the attitudes and opinions of current on-campus student employees.
The Student Employment Satisfaction Survey is conducted annually. The participation of the survey has continually increased over the years since it has begun. In November 2006 nearly 80% of all student employees participated in the survey.
Some of the conclusions of the first survey conduced in November 2003 were:
From this came more information from the Marketing Research Project.
The objective of a Marketing Research Project completed by seven Northwest students was to gather information on other training/compensation based programs at other colleges and universities. The research was conducted in Spring 2004. There were 38 out of 41 peer institutions that were contacted by telephone and participated in a survey.
The Career Pathing Program addresses these concerns while giving the Student a chance to develop their skills in the workforce, while building valuable connections. Also, it gives the opportunity for each student to grow and receive a pay increase for all of their hard work in a particular position.
