Hire Badgers: Bringing Two-Way Value to a Student Work Experience

Thursday, March 4 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am • Organized By UW-Madison SBDC
Online Event


Did you know that the UW-Madison Work-Study Program, previously reserved for on-campus and non-profit organizations, has recently been expanded to small businesses - and even covers 75% of the wages earned? Or that many UW-Madison students pursue internship opportunities as a way to develop new skills and explore career pathways while they are studying at UW? 

If you’ve ever wondered about hiring a UW-Madison student, this session is for you! We’ll discuss the differences between the Work-Study Program and student internship opportunities and help you understand more about how to make the experience a successful one for both you and the student.  

Throughout the session we’ll cover: 

  • How the Work-Study and internship programs work, and how businesses can participate 
  • How to create an engaging internship opportunity that offers interesting, meaningful work 
  • The mechanics of how to post jobs, interview, and hire 
  • An overview of who our students are and what they are interested in 
  • How to establish appropriate tasks for students and set everyone up for success 
  • Details of who is eligible to offer internships and work-study opportunities, what qualifies as an internship
