Are you looking for an amazing, one-week paid opportunity for the summer? Alumni Affairs and Development (AAD) is now hiring 100+ student clerk positions for Cornell Reunion from June 4-9, 2019! If you are a proud Cornell student and interested in joining us for an exciting week, read on!

Reunion? What’s that?

Every June, over 7,000 Cornellians and their families come back to Ithaca for their class Reunion. The weekend is packed full of programming from class meals, Cornell lectures, family-friendly activities, dance parties, and more. Think of it as the ultimate summer camp for alumni with activities running all hours of the day.

What do clerks do?

We rely on our Reunion clerks to make the weekend go smoothly. Clerks are assigned to a specific group or class (ex: Class of 1994/25th Reunion) and assist alumni volunteers in executing a fun Reunion weekend. Clerks usually work 40 to 60 hours on the following tasks to name a few:

  • Decorating class headquarters
  • Checking guests into Reunion
  • Coordinating class-specific programs
  • Entertaining alumni—they love to talk to current students!

What’s in it for me?

  • Starting pay of $11.10/hr plus an average bonus of ~$300 based on performance.
  • Free housing on campus from Monday June 3, through Saturday, June 8, with meals included during work hours.
  • Networking with alumni; attendees love to hear what student life is like today and will seek out conversation with clerks.
  • Opportunity for continued employment; this is an annual event and we’d love to have you back for future Reunions during your time as an undergraduate Cornell student (with an hourly raise each summer, of course!)
  • It’s fun!

Please only apply if you:

  • Have no other obligations June 4-9; you will not be able to manage any coursework, job, or internship while working Reunion.
  • Are currently a full-time undergraduate student set to graduate 2019-2022.
  • Are committed to completing an I-9 form which requires physical documentation of a social security card or other documents.

I’m interested!

Apply Now!
