Student Employment Opportunities

University of Michigan students at Welcome Wednesdays at the Alumni Center

The Alumni Association offers employment opportunities for University of Michigan students seeking to develop their leadership skills while engaging with alumni and students through a variety of programs and resources. Student employees reflect the Alumni Association’s mission and core values that make our organization relevant to diverse students and alumni.

Welcome Wednesdays Team

Be a part of the Alumni Association’s signature event with students. Welcome Wednesdays has been a part of Michigan since 2007 and is made possible by membership dues to the Alumni Association. The Welcome Wednesdays Team is responsible for providing a welcoming environment and establishing a high-quality first impression for attendees.

Welcome Wednesdays are scheduled to return to the Alumni Center in January 2022. We are currently accepting applications for next semester. Student employees will greet students, manage data, hand out bagels, clean tables for the turnaround of students, come up with activities, fill campus partnership tables, and assist with other programming for the event.

These positions require staff to be knowledgeable of programs the Alumni Association offers and serve as an ambassador of the Alumni Association and the University. Welcome Wednesdays is for students, by students.

Building Managers and Front Desk Staff

Once the Alumni Center is open to the public, student life members will have access to the building as a study space during weekday evenings. Front desk staff and building managers will be essential to assisting student members who are accessing the building as well as supporting Alumni Association teams with various projects.

Responsibilities will include greeting visitors to the building, overseeing study spaces, event setup, and assisting with Alumni Association team projects.

These positions require staff to be knowledgeable of programs the Alumni Association offers and serve as an ambassador of the Alumni Association and the University. We are currently accepting applications for a November start.

Camp Michigania

Each summer, 75 individuals are hired to help ensure Camp Michigania Walloon remains the special place it has been for over 50 years. Both current students and alumni can be a part of the Camp Michigania staff. Staff members are hired to work in a specific program area and share responsibilities for the effective functioning of the Camp as a whole. You can expect to work six days per week, and even though working at a family camp offers more off-work hours than a kids’ camp might, you are still expected to be a role model 24 hours per day.
