    Being a Student Ambassador

    Student Ambassadors have one of the most important jobs on campus: recruiting new Gaiters! It’s not just about showing off our amazing facilities and beautiful buildings, you will also be helping prospective students find the right fit for their higher education. Because of this, you will have to be in the know and be excited about what’s going on around campus. At Bishop’s, we are proud that our students are so well rounded and we want you to educate visiting students on how your experience at a liberal arts institution has helped you develop as a student leader. This year we will be hiring for two separate positions, Student Ambassador – Tour Guide & Student Ambassador – Social Media Ambassador.

    Responsibilities – Tour Guide

    In addition to tours (both virtual and in-person), our ambassadors are key players in the recruitment office. You will be the face of Bishop’s University at our Open Houses and at outreach events such as school fairs and newly admitted student receptions. We will rely on you to chat with prospective students online and help provide content for blogs/vlogs about various topics to share with prospective students. We will also need your help around the office to make sure that our recruitment initiatives run smoothly.

    Responsibilities – Social Media Ambassador

    In addition to tours (both virtual and in-person), our social media ambassadors are key players in the recruitment office. You will be the face of Bishop’s University at our Open Houses and at outreach events such as school fairs and newly admitted student receptions. You will also be working closely with our Digital Communications Officer to help create content for our outreach efforts to prospective students. We will rely on you to be well versed in different social media platforms (primarily TikTok) and to offer new and innovative ideas for social media campaigns.

    What you can expect from us?

    We’ll work around your class schedule and pay you an hourly rate. You will also be provided with all the information, training and support needed to do a great job.

    Think you have something special to offer? Here’s our hiring process:

    Step 1: Fill out the online application to give us an idea of who you are as a student.

    Step 2: Using a cell phone, webcam or camcorder, film a short (2 minutes maximum) video answering the following question:

    Tell us about a learning experience at Bishop’s that made you realize Bishop’s was the right university for you. Why do you think this experience would make you a good student ambassador?

    Step 3: Either upload to YouTube and send a link to it to kdean@ubishops.ca or bring your video to the Campus Tour Room MOU231 (in the SUB) on a USB key.

    Applications must be submitted by Monday, February 21st, 2022.

    Step 4: If you are one of the top entries, you’ll hear from us at the end of February and you will be invited in for an interview.

    These interviews will be scheduled for the week of March 29, 2021.

    We look forward to your application, best of luck!
