Jobs with Summer Conference Housing

Conference Assistant

About the Conference Assistant (CA) Position

The Conference Assistant position within Summer Conference Housing has historically been one of the most competitive, challenging, and rewarding student employment opportunities on campus. Conference Assistants are responsible for the execution of over 125 conferences and camps each summer that bring over 25,000 guests to the university. These guests will spend over 60,000 nights in our residence halls and will eat almost 100,000 meals!

Conference Assistants are responsible for staffing the 24-hour front desk of our operation, located in Smith-Steeb, and assisting our meeting planners with conference preparation during the first few weeks of our season. To further enrich their experience, Conference Assistants will then have the opportunity to plan conferences on their own beginning in early June. We ultimately hire Managers based on their performance as Assistants, making the first year an extremely integral one. Because of the demands of the position, Conference Assistants may not take classes during their employment and may not have any other part-time or full-time employment.

Office Assistant

About the Office Assistant (OA) Position

Office Assistants are often the first Summer Conference Housing staff members our guests come into contact with each day, so they are particularly vital to our customer service efforts!  Without their presence in our residence halls, we would not nearly be as successful as we are.

This role is unique from its Academic Year equivalent in that our OAs do not need to worry about keys, paperwork, mail and/or equipment check out.  Instead, they are primarily tasked with providing our guests with great customer service by answering their questions, exchanging out their linen/towels and providing recommendations, directions and assistance as needed.  Given their continuous presence in OSU's residence hall lobbies, OAs also fulfill a very important safety and security oversight function within our organization.

OAs may take classes, hold second jobs and volunteer in conjunction with this role.  If enrolled academically at The Ohio State University during our summer season, a maximum of 28 hours per week is permitted.  Non-enrolled Office Assistants may work up to 38 hours.

If you have questions regarding this position prior to the interview process, please do not hesitate to contact the Director, Matthew Gaul, at (614) 292-9725 or via email at Gaul.11@osu.edu.  Please type your application.
