The Office of Admissions is looking to hire multiple Front Desk Student Assistants to start working this summer quarter. This is a student-hourly position.
The Office of Admissions serves approximately 55,000 callers and 10,000 visitors per year. Student Assistants serve as a point of contact for prospective students and families, providing general information and resources regarding educational opportunities, student life, and more. Student Assistants work to create a welcoming environment for prospective applicants and other visitors. In some cases, you will be the first person that visitors meet on campus, and their first impression of the University of Washington.
Direct job duties include answering the Office of Admissions phone, welcoming individuals who come to our office, supporting admission counselors in their outreach work, and supporting processing staff in their daily work. This job is flexible around class schedules and offers the opportunity to work year round, including during all school breaks and the summer.

hours to up to 15 hours, depending upon the current office operating schedule and the student’s course schedule.
Typically, the office is open to the public from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
