DEADLINE EXTENDED – CURL is hiring 3 student assistants!

Top up those resumés, pull out that pantsuit, and compose (cringe through?) that cover letter: CURL is hiring!
*Disclaimer: neither pantsuits nor cringing are actually required for these positions. In fact, a stone-like level of cringe tolerance would be helpful for when we make bad jokes. Like this one.

We have 3 positions available with a range of online and in-person roles. Check them out and send any questions our way at curl@uwo.ca! We’re excited to meet you!

DEADLINE EXTENDED! Applications for all jobs are due to curl@uwo.ca by 11:59PM on Wednesday, October 12. Please note that all interviews will take place over Zoom.

1: The Student Ambassador – 12 hrs/week – In-Person Role

Student Ambassador Job Description & Application Instructions

You’d help CURL by developing events and presentations that share our services with students—and you’d collect their feedback so we can serve them better next year. During conference season, you would help to manage a small group of volunteers. We’ll support your endeavours with event recruitment, faculty connections, and ads!

You’re a confident smooth-talker, but totally approachable: you thrive in high-interaction environments where you get to collaborate on multiple projects, and you recognize (and appreciate) the value everyone can bring to the table.

In group work, you’re quickly confirmed to be “the presenter”, and the spotlight doesn’t scare you one bit: you’re chill, friendly, and you LOVE sharing information and ideas. Inclusion comes naturally to you, and “Social” would be your middle name if your parents had let you change it (you asked in grade 5.)

2: The Web/Media Assistant – 12 hrs/week – Remote Role

Web/Media Assistant Job Description & Application Instructions

You’d help CURL by proposing, composing, designing, and scheduling CURL social media posts and/or articles. During CURL Conference season, your duties will expand to helping organize a small team of social media volunteers. We’ll support you with a 1-on-1 supervisor with whom you can develop ideas and share/divide tasks.

If someone asked you to describe yourself in high school using one word, you might flit uncertainly between “nerd” and “artist”. (Then you might land on “nardist” and full-on snort at your own joke.)

Sure, writing is your jam, and you’ve got a great eye for aesthetics, but you can’t deny your everlasting love for clarity. You notice when one paragraph should’ve been two, when the stock photo on an ad is even slightly misleading, and when lists are categorized less accurately than they should be. Finicky? You prefer to call it perceptive.

This doesn’t mean you’re unfriendly: you just want information to be clear, accessible, and most of all, welcoming. You invite everyone to the information party on error-free, rainbow cards you design yourself (the glitter is non-negotiable.)

3: The Digital Archivist – 5 hrs/week – Remote Role

Digital Archivist Job Description & Application Instructions

You’d help CURL by co-developing and maintaining a WordPress website archiving students’ past submissions to CURL. We’ll support you with a 1-on-1, completely online supervisor who knows the blog design ropes!

You’re self-driven, independent, and detailed—maybe even a little regimented. Sure, you’re co-operative and friendly when it counts, but ultimately, you thrive in lower-interaction roles where you can devote your attention to one continuous project—after all, your projects are your baby, and you focus best when there aren’t a million OTHER screaming babies around. You’re looking for a small time commitment with clear tasks that can be picked up and put down at any point during the week (on second thought, maybe the “baby” metaphor isn’t so applicable.)

Tech comes naturally to you, so you pick up new software and navigate new websites in a flash. Your definitive high school experience was someone coming in the room and asking, “Are you EVER going to get off that computer?” (No. The answer was no.)

Further Notes

Eligible Experience & Additional Materials

Given that the pandemic has proooobably threw a wrench into your recent employment plans (and because we’re just pretty into equitable hiring practices), we welcome you, if you are comfortable, to share ways you’ve developed your skills that occurred outside of formal employment.

Ambassador, did you organize a biweekly art group or campaign to get more vegetarian items in your school cafeteria?

Media Assistant, did you help a friend start an Instagram for their crochet business or build a killer website for your D&D group?

Archivist, did you create a colour-coded binder for your past report cards or compile all the equipment stats for the wiki of your favourite game?

We’d love to hear about it!
