Quick Hit: Mentoring Opportunity!

Parsons has openings for students who would like to mentor New York City youth in the Parsons Scholars Program. Almost 60 students in 10th – 12th grade study at Parsons each Saturday morning to prepare portfolios and attend college access workshops and events through our pre-college scholarship program.

Mentors work with cohorts of 12 – 15 youth and their faculty coordinator on a weekly basis both in the pre-college classroom and planning and organizing events. This is a paid position through Federal Work Study awards and both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to attend an information session on Friday evening to find out how to make a difference in the lives of our pre-college youth.

Work in the Illustration Department!

The school year is almost upon us, which means that the Illustration Department is looking for Federal Work-Study students!  This is a great opportunity to work closely with members of the Department and get valuable experience with Photoshop, art installation, and various other exciting areas.  We need people who are reliable, punctual, meticulous, and ready to try new things.  If you have experience and expertise in taking photos, hanging art, working with digital imagery, or website development, you are exactly what we are looking for!

There will be an open interview process on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, August 19th and 20th AND Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, August 26th and 27th.  If you are eligible for Federal Work-Study and are interested in working for us, we invite you to stop by one of these afternoons between 2 and 4 p.m.

Bring a resume and be ready to tell us why you are perfect for the job.  If neither of those dates work for you, make sure you at least email us so we know you are interested in a position.  Working here in the department is a wonderful experience.  It’s a chance to really get involved with departmental events and processe and generally, it’s a great opportunity.
