Working for Recreation is much more than convenient on-campus employment! You acquire specific job training, develop skills, meet new people, and feel good about helping to build a healthy Rutgers Community. Most of all, as a Recreation student employee, we will encourage you to Do What Moves U!

Other benefits:

  • Certifications and training programs
  • Leadership opportunities
  • Transferable skills you can apply post-graduation

Recreation works with other campus partners including Career Services and Student Involvement & Leadership to provide you with co-curricular experiences including workshops, programs and conference opportunities that can provide you with the necessary competencies to succeed both at Rutgers and post-graduation.

Rutgers Recreation is fortunate to have numerous alumni willing to invest back into the program that helped them develop during their time on the banks!  Alumni lead workshops, participate in our special events and serve as mentors to our current student employees.  If you are an alumnus of our program and would like to give back to TeamRec please contact Paul Fischbach, 848-445-0466 for more information.
