Back to School Payroll?

I was just reading advertisement in disguise as an article on paying student employees put out by Intuit this morning, and had a thought.

Why not get on this bandwagon?  Student's are hard up for jobs, this much is clear.  I remember my first few jobs well... a small movie rental store, fast food, a local regional grocery store, and hawking used furniture with a friend of mine's father on the weekends.  Not glamorous  that much is certain, but I learned a lot about life as I began dipping my foot into the adult world.

The jobs that could be the most intriguing are the small businesses.  No, the jobs were not intriguing, but the opportunity to make inroads in the community, and help small business owners to support High School and College age kids is.

This could be a great opportunity to both find new payroll business, and give back to your community in a couple of ways:

  • You could be helping kids to understand what all the little numbers on those pay stubs mean
  • You could help the student to establish their employment paper trail and first real bit of data for their resume
  • You could sponsor a student employment seminar and resume review with other business owners, or even get the ball rolling on a 'students only' small business job fair.
Use your imagination, and check out what one entrepreneur at Intuit Canada came up with in the article below:
