The Undergraduate Admissions Office (UAO) is looking for summer tour guides to help give campus tours. These tour guides primarily will be giving tours to prospective students, families, and school groups that visit the University Park campus. The ideal tour guide applicant should demonstrate a positive, enthusiastic attitude and strong customer service and interpersonal skills. The dates of this job are from May 6 to August 9. This position will be paid at a rate of $9.50 per hour. In addition to touring, during Spend a Summer Day dates in late July, guides will perform other assignments including greeting families, giving directions to sessions, helping at registration tables, sitting on panels, and more. Finally, this position could offer the opportunity to take prospective students to class with the Life@State program, provided the guide is taking a summer class at University Park. All hired tour guides will be on a paid basis and applicants do not have to be a part of the student tour organizations to apply, but should be a student at or recent graduate from University Park. It is a fun experience over the summer to recruit and show your Penn State Pride on a flexible working schedule! Please include a resume and predicted work schedule (weekly calendar, not just a class list) in order for your application to be reviewed.
