Become a Student Assistant

SECC boasts a productive and hard-working environment, yet one which is supportive, positive, and fun. We value integrity and accountability, and encourage our employees to grow, learn and develop professionally. Student Assistants (SAs) are important members of the SECC team who provide one-on-one and group support to U of S students and alumni in the areas of employment and career development.

Working as an SA is a wonderful opportunity for U of S students to develop knowledge and skills that can further their academic and career goals. Each SA serves as an ambassador of the SECC and the U of S at large, modeling student leadership through their work at the Centre and beyond. It's a fun, rewarding and challenging job giving students a chance to provide excellent service, engage in personal and professional skill development, and model authentic student leadership.

The SECC's 2019-20 Student Assistant posting will be live in CareerLink Feb 2019.
