Looking for student leaders for a Tele-a-thon in mid-January ($10/hour)

  • earn $10 per hour
  • if interested, email Joelle Carter by Fri, Dec 7, 2012

The Division of Enrollment Management is continuing to coordinate efforts to reach out to WKU undergraduate students regarding their college experiences over Winter term.  In an effort to learn more about students’ experiences during the fall, we will be making phone calls to their homes during the holiday break. From January 7, 2013 – January 22, 2013, we will contact students during designated time periods to discuss their academic goals and campus involvement.  We will also highlight campus resources that can assist them based on the individual conversations. Our goal is to keep them engaged and excited about returning to WKU over the break.

We believe that peer to peer interaction is the best way facilitate this project and invite student recommendations from you for participation. Our office will provide training, scripted information and support for the duration of this project. Further, students will be compensated for their time at a rate of $10 per hour.  The phone calls will be made from the WKU Office of Admissions teleconference center.  We will probably hire between 8-10 students for the duration of the project.

We are specifically interested in students who are performing well academically; involved in leadership organizations; and/or able to reflect about a challenge or success they have had as a WKU student and how they have utilized campus resources to overcome those challenges and achieve their successes.  If you have students in mind, please direct them to email me at joelle.carter@wku.edu by December 7th. I will provide more details about training and payroll.

Thanks so much!
