Passionate. Supportive. Adaptable.
Penn Student Agencies offers undergraduate and graduate students transferable job experience and training at the University of Pennsylvania. Our 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, which is why all agency leadership positions and the PSA C-Suite are occupied by students! Students interested in running one of our businesses should start early, as Managers and Executive 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.
We hope that PSA will be a place for professional development and a tight-knit social 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!
