Dear grad students,
The Communications department is looking to hire someone who is dedicated to student success and who is interested in helping advise undergraduate Communication students. Those hired will learn Degree Works, attend MAC classes, and learn all COMM major program and general education degree requirements in order to assist undergraduate COMM students in reaching their academic goals. They will be mentored. Those hired will be able to make their own schedule weekly between the hours of 9am-5pm for 30 minute appointments.
They need someone who is detail oriented, who is comfortable in stressful situations, has strong interpersonal communication skills, someone who can negotiate conflict, and who is energetic. This person must have a B.A. or B.S, although it does not need to be in COMM. They would prefer to hire someone who envisions being there longer than one or two semesters, but that is not a deal-breaker ;o)
You must be able to prove you are able to legally work according to the State of VA hiring rules if you are a TA or an RA because of the 29-hour per week law.
If interested, please send a resume and cover letter to Dr. Cathy Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org. They have had psyc graduate students in this position before, so they are definitely open to hiring from outside their department.
The pay is $20 an hour.
