Are you a problem solver? Do you enjoy helping others reach their goals? Are you a quick learner, comfortable with new technology? Then the library might have a job for you.
We are looking for some stellar student assistants to work in the library during Fall 2018.
General duties will include answering basic library questions, greeting patrons in person and over the phone, assisting with library equipment, checking in and out library materials, and maintaining order of library collections on the shelf. In addition, student assistants may monitor the online chat service, provide basic reference and technology assistance, and assist with closing the library. Specific duties will vary depending upon which floor assistants are assigned to work, but students will receive training for all tasks.
The right candidates will demonstrate a commitment to customer service, attention to detail, and the ability to work independently and as part of a team. Dependability and flexibility are also required. Candidates should also demonstrate good written and verbal communication skills and have some computer experience. The library uses an Integrated Library System, so the ability to learn new technology is required.
To qualify, you must be an undergraduate student in good academic standing. We are currently accepting applications for the Fall 2018 semester. Student assistants may work a maximum of 19.5 hours per week. Assigned weekly hours will vary depending on student availability and library coverage needs. Most student assistants work between 12-15 hours per week.
