My name is Sharon Kompalla, and I am an Assistant Director in the Center for Residence Life. I oversee the Apartment Area, and weexpect to havenumerous graduate assistantships available for the 2012-2013 academic year that I'd like to share with you. In addition to Residence Life graduate assistantships, many other assistantships will be available within the Division of Student Affairs. Additional positions will be available in offices such as Campus Life, The RIT Leadership Institute and Community Service Center, Student Conduct and Conflict Management Services, the Academic Support Center and Assessment for Student Affairs.
In Residence Life, we expect to have at least 8-9 positions available. Our GA positions are titled Community Advocates which are studentstaff members who live and work within the RIT apartment community, providing support, advocacy, programming, and resource referral to over 3300 students. These positions are very attractive since they provide a hourly wage, free on-campus housing, a partial meal plan, and invaluable leadership, conflict resolution, programming, and teamwork experience.
Campus Interview Day
We will accept applications for these positions until they are filled; however, priority will be given to applicants who apply by March 31st, 2012. Qualified candidates will be invited to participate in the April 15th on-campus interview day. Interviews are strongly encouraged, but alternate arrangements can be worked out for students who are unable to attend.
We are very excited to continue an online application process for all Student Affairs Graduate Assistantships. Students are able to apply for multiple positions by providing some basic information and uploading their resume and cover letter just once. This process has proved to be very user-friendly and simplifies the application process overall. The link to more information about all available assistantships and the online application is: http://www.rit.edu/studentaffairs/SAGraduateAssistantships.php.
The Center for Residence Life website also has information about the Community Advocate positions- the link is: http://reslife.rit.edu/about/employment/.
As you consider applying for these positions, we encourage you to think about your transferable skills and how best to convey how your previous experiences, both in academic and work settings, have prepared you for an advocacy role such as the Community Advocate position.
If you have any questions about the Residence Life graduate assistantship positions or the application process, please feel free to contact me at 475-4300 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, congratulations on your acceptance to RIT, and best wishes as you pursue your graduate studies!
