Student Employment Opportunities

The Alumni Association offers employment and volunteer opportunities for University of Michigan students seeking to develop their leadership skills while engaging with their peers and alumni through a variety of programs and resources. Student employees and volunteers embrace the Alumni Association’s mission and core values.

Welcome Wednesdays Team

The Welcome Wednesdays Student Staff positions are responsible for providing a welcoming environment and establishing a high-quality first impression for attendees. The positions are part-time, semester-long opportunities. Each staff member must work a minimum assigned shift of 2.5 hours between 7:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Wednesdays during the semester. Additionally, the Welcome Wednesdays staff must attend a paid training session and occasional paid staff meetings (TBA based on staff schedules). Openings for the Welcome Wednesdays position usually occur in the fall and spring. 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. This includes, but is not limited to, a general awareness of Alumni Association student services, programs/events, and the ability to appropriately direct questions posed by our visitors.

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.

Development Intern

Come work with the Development team! We are part of a University-wide community which contributed to a $5 billion University-wide campaign, the largest-ever fundraising campaign at a public university.

A testimonial from our last intern, Nick F: “The development position was an excellent experience that allowed me to work close to campus helping handle donations and donor-faculty connections. Additionally, the environment was super friendly, and my schedule allowed for a ton of flexibility, which was especially useful during the school year.”

Ideal candidates should be detailed-oriented, have a willingness to learn, and be a team player. Candidates should be available to work 5-7 hours a week between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Schedule is flexible around student availability.
