UPDATE: We are no longer accepting applications for this position. Thank you to everyone who expressed interest.
Are you a problem solver? Do you enjoy helping others reach their goals? Are you a quick learner, comfortable with new technology? Are your communication skills on fleek? Can you please explain to us librarians what “on fleek” means?
Last year the library embarked on an exciting endeavor to expand not only our physical footprint but also our services. In Spring 2016 we will open a new service counter on the upper level dedicated to providing quality reference support for our library patrons. To meet this goal we are looking for two student assistants to work at the new Information/Reference Desk.
Duties will include answering basic library questions both in person and online, answering the reference desk phone, and answering questions related to library equipment, and to the resources in the new information commons. Student assistants will also be trained to work circulation desk duties on the lower level of the Library. There may be times when back up is needed either in Reference or Circulation, so cross training is important.
The right candidates will demonstrate good written and verbal communication skills, have experience with computer software, be dependable and flexible, and value good customer service. If this sounds like you and you are available to work during the available time slots, please pick up and submit a REFERENCE Student Assistant application in the library. Then, send your résumé to JoanTaylor@clayton.edu and ThomasJacksonJr@clayton.edu.
