Possible job? [Apr. 14th, 2005|08:29 pm]
Chaz Meyers
Are you:
  • are a Temple undergraduate student.
  • have free time on Fridays.
  • are at least somewhat competent with Microsoft Office, etc. or able to fake it.
  • do not work more than 20 hours/week for Temple University already.
  • are punctual.

If you could answer yes to all of the above, I might be able to get you a (very) part time job.

What is required (in order of frequency):
  • Normally, nothing. It's mostly downtime. Do homework. Surf the web.
  • Stop people from bringing in food and drink!
  • Very basic tech support with printing and MS Office. "OMG, why can't I print?" "Because you can only print X pages per month." "Oh."
  • Help scanning images. Basically, do it for them if they ask.
  • Put paper into the printer. We have a really huge tray that takes a few thousand sheets at a time, so this isn't a full time job like it is in Tuttleman.
  • Unjam the printer when it paper jams. Printer gives you hints about where the paper is stuck. Sort of like high tech hide and seek.
  • Whatever else they ask you to do? They occationally give weird assignments. ("Move all these monitors downstairs!" "Go through this doc we scanned in and fix it where the scanning software messed up and jumbled the letters." "Reinstall windows on this computer!")

I don't remember the exact hours. It would be like early afternoon or late morning. I updated the post about what the job entails.

I might be interested, but I know someone else who might be more interested than I am. Could you give me some details?

I just updated the post with more details. If you need more, hit me up on aim.

I'd rather refer someone I personally know (and know to be at least somewhat responsible). That's why I posted here, not templeu. :)

Re: well hello

I'm sorry, but I would feel more comfortable referring someone who I know personally. (My boss, at times, gives me the impression that he's not terribly fond of me, so I try to play it safe with him. Gotta stick around for another year or so, yano? :-P)

3.5? But, really, 2, since I'm not really considering people I don't know.

If Dana and Sam both pass on it and no reliable unemployed people I know reply, you'll be next in line.

Sounds a lot like my job now, except I don't have to drive an hour to do it. Fridays are pretty easy for me, just one class. If I could make some extra money by just hanging around campus a little longer that would be amazing. But if someone else needs the job give it to them. :-)

Oh, I didn't mention before that it's not strictly "on campus". It's over at Allegany, at the Health Campus. It's like a 5-15 minute drive up, depending on how you drive. :-P

I'll take a look at the responses I get tonight and tomorrow morning. I know that Sam and Tosh both have jobs, so I don't think anyone is necessarally hurting for employment. If someone I know needs the job and replies by then, I'll obviously pick them, but otherwise, I'll get in touch with you about it. First come first serve, and all that jazz.

(Assuming the 5 minute drive isn't a dealbreaker for you. ;-))
