A Good Job Book Discussion Group

A Good Job: Campus Employment as a High Impact Practice

by George S. McClellan (Author), Kristina L. Creager (Author), Marianna Savoca (Author), George D. Kuh (Foreword)

Carefully designed campus employment opportunities can have numerous benefits, including career exploration and preparation, learning, and increased engagement leading to increased retention. The authors make the case that employment can and should be a purposeful and powerful component in any higher education institution’s efforts to support student learning, development, and success.

This book makes the case for campus employment as a high-impact practice in higher education and is an excellent resource for anyone interested in capitalizing on the developmental and learning potential of student employment on campus.

The book group will be facilitated by a group of colleagues who are piloting the use of e-portfolios in campus jobs and campus internships as a way of promoting career discernment. The goal is to help students reflect on their work experiences, understand their academic and other growth, and develop a digital showcase for themselves and also to help guide supervisors in providing meaningful feedback.
