Date: 10/17/19
Employer: Office of Admission
Address: 70 Wyllys Ave., Middletown, CT 06459

Last year, the Office of Admission welcomed over 13,000 visitors to campus! Tour guides are often the first, and sometimes the only, interaction a family will have with a Wesleyan representative while here. Are you up for the challenge?

The Tour Guide position is an opportunity for students of all majors to support the recruitment efforts of the Office of Admission. We seek 12-18 new guides who are mature, dependable, energetic, articulate, positive, outgoing and eager to share their Wesleyan experience.

In addition to giving informed tours of Wesleyan University each week, you will be expected to:
- Attend new Tour Guide training (Jan 21-22)
- Act in a professional and respectful manner while in the office and on tour
- Dress appropriately while on tour
- Attend tour guide staff meetings once per month
- Participate in Admission office events (Open House, WesFest etc…)

The position is open to students in the class of 2021, 2022 and 2023 who are in good standing with the University. Compensation will be based on campus workstudy pay rates, although you do not need to be eligible for workstudy to apply.

- Applications are due on Sunday, November 3 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
- Anyone offered an interview will be contacted by November 20.
- Those offered a position will be contacted before the Thanksgiving recess.
- New guides will be required to return from winter break early for paid training (Jan. 21-22).
