  1. Your application is due online no later than 11:59 p.m. on Friday, February 3rd, 2017.
  2. Before you begin, please have the following information, as it is required to complete the application:
    • Names and email addresses of two professional references. (If you are applying to be a Resident Advisor, it is strongly recommended that one of your references be your current or former RA.) One reference should be from a professional position (faculty/staff) at Willamette University.

  4. Give your references plenty of time to complete and submit them online by the February 3rd deadline.
    • The references should be completed by a Willamette faculty/staff member (e.g., athletic coach, advisor, College Colloquium professor), an employment supervisor (if you have a job on campus) or your Resident Advisor (if you live on-campus). Each of the four positions require two completed references.
    • Note: It is never acceptable to have a friend or family member complete a reference form, even if they have also served in a supervisory role.
  5. If hired, students must attend training sessions outlined on the job description.
  6. You may only serve in one of these four leadership positions (JS, OD, RA, CM) at a time. You may, however, apply for more than one position.
