70 jobs will be available in October
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (Aug. 22, 2016) — More than 200 on-campus part-time jobs will soon be available to help Northern Kentucky University students pay college costs. Education at Work (EAW) plans to open an on-campus contact center in partnership with NKU and Paycor, a cloud-based Human Capital Management platform provider based in Cincinnati.
“We know that it can be difficult to be a student today, and that one significant obstacle to student success is often financial,” said NKU President Geoffrey S. Mearns. “We are pleased to partner with Education at Work and Paycor, organizations that share our commitment to removing those barriers. This partnership will allow our students to thrive in an organization that challenges them academically, while helping them gain professional experience and graduate with less debt. It is another example of how we work each day at NKU to put our students first and to help them succeed.”
Paycor will bring the first 70 part-time jobs to the campus in October. At completion, the new campus contact center will house two clients and over 200 on-campus jobs for NKU students.
As Paycor representatives, students will build professional experience in client and technical back office support. Each EAW student employee will earn a competitive hourly wage, plus the opportunity to earn up to $6,000 in tuition assistance per year through EAW’s tuition assistance program.
EAW is an affiliate of USA Funds, an Indianapolis-based nonprofit organization that supports Completion With a Purpose, enhancing student success in college and careers. Since Education at Work’s inception in 2012, $271,946 in tuition assistance and $1,135,329 in wages have been awarded to NKU students who have worked at the organization’s headquarters in Cincinnati or on a client site. To date, EAW student employees nationally have earned more than $2.3 million in tuition assistance and $11.3 million in wages.
