rabat-onlyFEATURED POSITIONS:

There are two Intern Positions currently available on campus…one with Admissions, another with Enrollment Management!  Details are below!

Are you dependable, smart, mature, fun, and could use a 20 hour a week part-time job on campus? Then you need to apply for the Admissions Intern position!

The position covers the full academic year (holidays off the same time the school is closed, time off is available by request).  It is a fantastic fit for a hard-working student who needs to earn a little extra income but not have his/her grades suffer. The hours will be set by the student on his/her start date but must be regular. Also, though any student may apply, a student in Freshman or Sophomore standing would be preferred. The job is 20 hours a week at minimum wage ($7.25/hr) and may consist of the following duties:

-Secretarial duties such as answering the phones, greeting students, and setting up appointments
-Data entry into the online Banner system
-Handling and entering of student application information
-Working within a dynamic, fun team to come up with advertisement and event ideas and bringing these ideas to fruition
-Providing campus tours as needed
-Other duties as assigned

The job includes several extra perks such as opportunities for networking, gaining professional computer skills, gaining professional intra-office skills, and having flexible hours for academic or personal needs per request (e.g., Finals Week).

Again, we are looking for a dependable, smart, mature, and fun student, and if you think you qualify, please fill out the attached application and email it to Teri Douglas (tdouglas@cbu.edu).  Any questions should also be sent to this address. You will also be required to request and submit 2 letters of recommendation to the Undergraduate Office of Admissions, at least one of which will need to be from a CBU professor. The letters can be emailed directly from the professor(s) or must be sealed and signed over in an envelope that can be hand-delivered to the office by the student. The letters do not have to be long; they simply need to reflect the recommenders’ opinions on your fit for this position and your general professional acumen. Both of these materials (application and letters) must be submitted by February 27th at 4pm.
