As the locus for one of the University’s primary strategic goals, Global Programs is an area of growth and opportunity for students seeking to gain global experience and competency in international education. Global Programs is seeking multiple Orientation Leaders (both undergraduate and graduate) to work with the Student Engagement and Intercultural Learning (SEIL), team during International Student Orientation. These student leaders will help Penn State welcome our incoming international students by facilitating information sessions, guiding students to events/social gatherings, and assisting with moving students from temporary housing to permanent on-campus housing. Orientation Leaders are a key component to a successful orientation and transition process. International Orientation Leaders can work Summer 2018 orientation (June 21-24) and/or Fall 2018 orientation (graduate orientation: August 5-8, undergraduate orientation: August 9-15). You must be enrolled as a Penn State student in the Spring 2018 and Fall 2018 semesters to be considered. Please indicate in your cover letter for which orientation(s) you are available (availability for Fall orientation is mandatory). A complete application will include a 1-page resume and a 1-page cover letter. We encourage both international and domestic students to apply! International students offer a great perspective on the international transition process and experience, while domestic students offer a valuable American perspective on college life in the United States. Ideal applicants will demonstrate strong teamwork skills, strong leadership skills, genuine concern for new students, flexibility in a fast-paced environment, strong communication/interpersonal skills, and a willingness to welcome and assist new international students who may not speak English as their first language. A successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to work with a diverse group of students and champion Penn State’s commitment to the inclusion of students of all backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs. Previous experience studying abroad or working with international students is a plus.
