Become a 2014-15 Hurford Center Office Assistant

The John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities is accepting Student Office Assistant Applications for 2014-15. We seek sharp, organized students with keen editorial eyes and a general interest in the arts & humanities. Conversely, we’re also looking for sharp, organized students with keen editorial eyes who don’t quite know what the arts & humanities are (but would like to learn).

The work is varied and changes so often that it doesn’t get boring. The most regular task is postering for our events around campus (and at Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore), so a readiness to travel between the schools is a must. In addition Office Assistants help with all the tasks necessary to run the office—xeroxing, scanning, filing, shredding documents, purchasing supplies at the book store, proof reading, filing, rearranging furniture and adjusting the set up in Stokes 102 for all its various uses, moving excess chairs to storage, organizing and updating the HCAH bulletin boards, placing supply or book orders, and so on. Office Assistants are crucial members of our team. They provide support for Center projects and for our Mellon Postdoc Fellows. While much of the work is routine, the tasks are generally short and no day is like any other. It’s the kind of job where you can come in and see what needs doing most and accomplish it in your shift.

Office Assistants get a insider’s look at Center opportunities and all the various events we sponsor.

Skilled photographers are also much in demand! If you have a portfolio to show, let us know.

Start Date: Late August—we'll have work for you even before the semester begins.

Hours Required: Flexible—let us know how hours many you’d like. Scheduled student work hours take place between 10am and 5pm. There will be times when we need additional help for an event at night or on the weekend—opportunities to be paid for additional work time.
