Getting an on-campus job is an amazing way to get involved at Kean, learn new skills and receive compensation for hard work. With a variety of departments, students are bound to find an office or department that fits their interests.
The Miron Student Center is a great place for students to find employment. There, students can gain experience and learn skills that will assist them in future careers.
The Information Desk Specialist position is one of the most important roles within this department. These student workers can be seen assisting the Kean community in answering any and all of their questions.
"The environment, the work environment," said Information Desk Specialist Malcolm Greer when speaking about the positive aspects of the position.
Greer has found balancing the academic responsibilities and the demands of a campus job to be overwhelming at times. However, the work environment helps to combat this stress.
Students who enjoy certain classes or topics can look into becoming tutors. Tutors are responsible for helping those who need assistance in their courses. Most of Kean's tutoring services are stationed in the Nancy Thompson Learning Commons (NTLC).
Tutors are expected to work with students in groups or in one-on-one sessions. Additionally, they may be asked to represent the NTLC at events or workshops.
Another job within the library is the position of a Starbucks barista. Starbucks is located on the first floor of the library and is a popular spot for college students. This is a great option for those who enjoy the fast paced environment of the food industry.
For students who’d like to stay on campus, they can consider becoming a Resident Assistant (RA). This occupation allows students to contribute to their campus community by maintaining a safe and supportive environment for those who dorm. An RA acts as a supervisor to residents by helping them with their requests, reports, emergencies and general inquiries.
Students that want to learn more about being an RA can attend the Resident Assistant Meet & Greet on November 1 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. In the New Freshman Residence Hall Multi-Purpose Room, attendees can ask questions about the position and learn more about the hiring process.
