The Undergraduate Admissions Office is looking to fill a spring internship position reporting to the Visitation Team. Responsibilities for this position include, but are not limited to, learning, developing, and running daily operations for the Life@State prospective student shadow program, where prospective students shadow current students in Penn State classes. Role will include communicating with hosts on a daily basis, helping to train the hosts for the event, as well as answering questions of prospective students and their parents. Additional duties will include assisting with the planning and logistics of Accepted Student Programs and additional programming throughout the spring semester. The intern may have to staff events and help with other office functions, as necessary. Availability Monday and Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., is highly preferred. We are seeking one candidate to work about 20 hours. This position will be from January 8, through April 27, 2017. Please keep in mind Penn State students holding multiple paying positions at Penn State cannot work more than 40 hours/week total. Candidates interested in receiving credit for their internship experience may do so with the approval of the UAO and their academic department. Regardless of whether credit will be received, this internship will be paid at a rate of $10 per hour. Preference will be given to candidates with tour guide experience or experience working with parents, families, and prospective or first-year students. Please include a resume and predicted work schedule (weekly calendar, not just a class list) in order for your application to be reviewed.
