This job requires a lot of patience and tact, as well as a good manner (and willingness to to work with) the public. You must be able to work 15-20 hrs/week between 10am & 5pm Monday thru Friday. For the current summer, we want applicants who are willing to come in 4-5 days per week. You must be dependable, friendly, and able to keep calm in a hectic office situation. You must have good data-entry skills, type at least 50 wpm, and must be able to follow directions and learn quickly. You must have 6 months prior work experience, including some office experience.

This is a 20-hour/week position for Summer and Spring, and 15-hour/week position in Fall. This position is compensated with a rent credit at the current workshift rate for 15 hours/week in Summer/Spring (10 hours/week in Fall) and fulfills your five-hours/week workshift requirement. Apartment dwellers and Summer residents will receive an additional rent credit stipend for the five workshift hours (at $22/hour), as this job does not replace the workshift requirement at the apartments or during the Summer. If for whatever reason this job begins mid-semester, the stipend will be prorated. This position starts Spring 2021 and lasts indefinitely. A long-term commitment is preferred.
