Welcome to the SEO

The Bates College Student Employment Office (SEO) provides students with opportunities to enrich their growth by acquiring part-time positions on or off campus. Many jobs teach students the basics of working in an office environment which includes being able to: organize books, packages and files, coordinate meetings and events and learn different computer programs. Students gain skills that they can take with them after Bates and into another professional setting.

To get started, follow the Student Employment Flow Chart.
