Job Title: Tour Guide
Employer: Admission
Address: 70 Wyllys Avenue
Qualifications/Description: The Office of Admission is hiring tour guides for Spring 2014! Admission Tour Guides represent Wesleyan to prospective students and their families as they decide where they will apply and where to attend college. Do you remember your Wesleyan tour guide? Often, a tour guide is the first, and sometimes only, student these families will meet and are critical in forming their impressions of campus and Wesleyan students. Applications are due on Friday, November 8 by 5pm, but you can definitely submit them earlier (and it would be appreciated!). If you are interested in applying, please fill out the application attached to this email. Once you complete the application, you can return a hard copy to the Office of Admission front desk, or e-mail it to Senior Assistant Dean of Admission Dave Thomas at The position begins at the start of the spring semester 2014 and we conduct training just prior to the start of classes. You would need to be available to give approximately 1-2 tours a week (more can be made available if you'd like), and attend meetings (1-2 times per month) as scheduled. Work study and non-work study students are welcome to apply, although work study students will be given preference. Also, we want tour guides to reflect Wesleyan students and the diversity of backgrounds, thoughts, and interests, and encourage all students to consider applying. Strong preference will be given to members of the classes of 2016 and 2017. If you have any questions, please contact Dave at We look forward to reading your applications!
