USC Undergrad Admissions Office – Graduate Assistant Opportunity
January 17, 2017

The USC Undergrad Admissions Center has an open graduate assistant position for this spring.  (The position is 15-20 hours per wk., must be available to work on Fridays and some weekends.)  This is an exciting opportunity to help build a new program from the ground up.  The program is called “Tommy’s Tours.”  It will provide opportunities for elementary and middle school students to take volunteer led tours of USC’s campus.

The Admissions Center is still working on the job description, but in a nutshell, the graduate assistant will:
1)  Review research that has already been gathered and help generate a proposal for the program to pitch to the university.
2)  Recruit, select, and train a group of volunteers (undergraduate students), who will lead the tours.
3)  Help manage the volunteers on an ongoing basis.

Because this is a new program, the Admissions Center is looking for someone who is excited, passionate, and highly committed.  This person will be expected to pick up the reigns right away by brainstorming ideas, offering feedback, taking risks, experimenting, leading others, etc.  This is NOT a job where knowledge will flow in one direction only (i.e., from supervisor to assistant).  Instead, the assistant will be heavily counted on for his/her knowledge, skills, and initiative.  The assistant will also be expected to perform his/her duties with little oversight, especially during busy times.  In addition to creating and implementing a new program, the assistant will gain exposure to many of the operations in admissions.  Additionally, he/she must be willing to perform routine responsibilities, such as answering phones, responding to student inquiries, and completing administrative tasks.

Please contact fieldwork coordinator, Laurie Markham, if you would like more information, including directions to apply.  213-740-2362.  Lmarkham@rossier.usc.edu.
