Orientation Leader recruitment email header

Dear Carlson School of Management Student,

Are you looking for a beneficial summer experience to expand your leadership skills and gain resume worthy accomplishments? Do you enjoy demonstrating leadership while getting paid for it? Orientation & First-Year Programs is now recruiting students to be 2015 Orientation Leaders!

As a part of this valuable internship experience, you will:

  • Lead and facilitate groups of 15-25 students during Orientation
  • Train and supervise a group of 12-20 Welcome Week Leaders
  • Develop your leadership style through collaboration, flexibility, and real-life experiences
  • Work in a dynamic, fast-paced, engaging environment
  • Make $3,500 in addition to room and board during Freshman Orientation
 

“Recruiting and training Welcome Week Leaders, as well as leading groups of students during Orientation, helped me develop leadership, personal, and behavioral skills that I will need in the business world. All of the different leadership topics we learned about helped progress me as a leader more than I could have ever hoped for. Recruiters for jobs and internships look at leadership experience and being an Orientation Leader definitely gave me the best leadership opportunity that I could have asked for.”

Connor - Entrepreneurial Management, Marketing Major and former Orientation Leader
