The Tech Loyalty Fund Phonathon will get underway in a few weeks, and currently organizers are looking to hire students who are willing to call alumni and friends of the university.
The phonathon begins on Sunday, February 13, and it runs through Wednesday, March 16. The phonathon helps raise funds for the university to provide scholarships and departmental support, and last year's phonathon raised more than $38,000 for the university.
Organizers say they’re looking to hire approximately 30 students to work as callers, and those selected will be expected to work a minimum of two shifts each week. The students will be calling from 5:45-9 p.m. each evening of the phonathon.
Kristin Smith, director of the Tech Loyalty Fund, says the phonathon depends on students. She adds, “The students play a pivotal part of the phonathon because they can tell the Arkansas Tech story better than anyone. Our alumni are interested in hearing a student’s perspective on the campus and what all is taking place at Arkansas Tech.”
Students interested in being a caller should pick up an application online or by visiting Career Services, Financial Aid or Room 209 of the Administration Building.
Those applying must also go by Room 209 of the Administration Building to sign up for a time to interview for the position, and interviews will take place February 7-10.
