While many people have lost their jobs due to Covid-19, many student organizations at KCC, such as the Board Of Students Activities, Student Congress, and the Board of Student Publications, are looking to fill various paid positions for students next semester.
Working on campus offers many benefits to students because it provides experiences that allow them to continue learning outside of class.
The Public Relations & Recruitment Officer for BOSA, Patrick Ignacio, said they are currently hiring for the BOSA executive board, which include the Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Public Relations/Recruitment officer. These jobs have leadership roles, and anyone interested in marketing, communications, or event planning can benefit themselves by working at BOSA.
“For students who want to become more involved on campus, this would be a good way to see some of your ideas come to life!” Ignacio said.
Applications are available online. To apply, send a resume and a cover letter. When submitting the application, BOSA will review it and, if interested, they will contact to organize an online interview with the applicant.
BOSA is also conducting their recruitment process online through email and Instagram. If students are interested in the job descriptions of their open positions, they can email firstname.lastname@example.org or direct message them on Instagram (@kccbosa) for more information.
Shannon Sakaue, the Faculty Advisor of the SKCC Student Congress, said that the Student Congress is the official voice of the students, and that they work to serve and advocate for student needs.
“Student Congress has elections every year in the spring. However, due to COVID-19, the elections will be postponed until the fall,” Sakaue said. “Information will be available to students through email from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.”
The positions for President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Public Relations are currently available and all positions are for one academic year.
Cheri Souza, Faculty Advisor of the Board of Student Publications, said that BOSP is recruiting for all positions too. The jobs available to apply are Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Voting Member. To apply, students don’t need any publications experience, but it is important to feel the desire to be a student leader.
“BOSP student leaders get the chance to learn and practice teamwork, communication, time management, decision-making, and problem-solving, all while getting paid!” Souza said.
BOSP’s mission is to provide students with high-quality publications to express their creativity and their own perspective of the world, in an environment where they can also find security and support.
If students are interested, or would like more information, they will have a meeting on Tuesday from 2-3:30 p.m. The meeting will be held via Zoom and anyone is welcome to attend. Attending this meeting could be an excellent opportunity to get to know the organization better and ask questions.
