Job Title: Senior Interviewer
Date: 2/28/2018
Employer: Office of Admission
Address: 70 Wyllys Avenue, Middletown, CT 06459

The Senior Interviewer position is a professional internship with the Office of Admission. We seek mature and responsible candidates with the ability to represent Wesleyan honestly, enthusiastically, and articulately. The position is open to all members of the Class of 2019 in good standing. Applications are due in the Office of Admission by 12 noon on Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

Senior Interviewers conduct admission interviews with prospective students, co-lead information sessions with the admission deans, interact with families and students, attend admission events on and off campus, sit on panels for our Open House programs and during WesFest, and a select few will be given the opportunity to read admission applications in January and February. You are also expected to engage in other office related tasks such as data entry, answering phones and emails, scheduling interviews, etc. SI's are paid $10.50 per hour; pending budget reviews a modest increase is possible. We expect that you will work 7-10 hours per week and every other Saturday during the fall semester from 8:30am-1pm. There are also occasional lunchtime meetings, either paid time or lunch provided, not more often than every other week.

Training is mandatory and will take place at the end of the semester, May 21-23, and successful candidates will be granted extended stay in your current housing.

Summer Opportunity:
We hire six Senior Interviewers to work full-time during the summer, from mid-June through September 1. There is no summer-only option, you must work both the summer and fall. Summer SI's work M-F, 8:30am-4:30pm and receive $14 per hour and fully subsidized on-campus housing. It is possible that two summer SI's may start in mid-July if you have commitments or opportunities at the beginning of summer, and unpaid time off is available by request with sufficient prior notice and given the needs of the office. Being a summer SI offers greater exposure to working in higher education and the opportunity to work more closely with the deans on specific projects. Because summer is a very busy time in the office preference will be given to those who are able to work at that time. Any changes in your summer availability after your application is submitted may impact your candidacy.

Students studying abroad:
We will hire all twenty Senior Interviewers this spring. Students studying abroad will be asked to apply from abroad and will be interviewed via Skype. You are eligible to apply for the summer internship if you are not on campus this semester.
