Passionate. Supportive. Adaptable.
Penn Student Agencies offers transferable job experience and training to undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania. Our Student Executive Leadership would like to emphasize that you DO NOT have to be business-oriented to join our team and excel!
PSA values growth and rewarding dedicated students, that is why all Business Management positions and the PSA Corporate Team are occupied by students! Students interested in running one of our businesses should start early, as Managers and Leadership are often hired internally.
Additional promotion opportunities are available for students at all experience levels. We continually nurture our community by hiring passionate, ambitious, and adaptable students.
Our hope is that PSA will not only be a place for professional development but also a tight-knit community of like-minded students. Additionally, we gladly employ both Federal Work Study and Non-Federal Work Study students which means our positions are accessible to anyone looking for an employment experience!
