I worked at Union College (New York) (More than a year)
Super friendly office where everyone excels at their job. You hardly feel like an intern working here. They are extremely considerate of your academic obligations and appreciative of the work you do for them (interviewing prospective students, staffing open houses, attending committee meetings). The professional development is priceless and you will likely grow a lot as a candidate in your future pursuits due to the interviewing experience you get working here. Excellent way to get an inside look at a pivotal aspect of how colleges' function.
This is not the opportunity for you if you have a hard time managing your schedule and prioritizing your responsibilities. If you rely on steady compensation this may not be the best opportunity as some months you will have more hours while other months your hours can drop significantly.
Advice to Management
Put more weight on the interview when looking at applications. A smart, low-need student who has a terrible attitude has no place at Union while a student with lower grades and the right mentality could really do amazing things at Union (and for Union).
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Union College (New York) in February 2014.
Not bad. Had a phone call that lasted about 30 minutes. We talked a lot about what it is I would be doing and where and when I would be working. Very informative and helpful.
