Phonathon Student Caller Job Description

The SUNYIT Phonathon is seeking to hire a group of responsible, enthusiastic students to serve as Student Callers for the 2013-2014 academic year. Each year, our Phonathon program contacts thousands of alumni, parents and friends in order to strengthen the relationship between these individuals and SUNYIT.

Our Phonathon Student Callers will reach out to these individuals over the phone to give campus updates, notify them about upcoming events, collect Class Notes for the Bridge magazine and to speak about the importance of supporting SUNYIT by making an annual gift to the SUNYIT Fund.

The Fall 2013 Phonathon will take place from Saturday, October 19th to Wednesday, October 30th. The Spring 2014 Phonathon will take place in March/April. Calling hours will be 6:00pm to 9:15pm on weekdays and 12:30pm to 4:00pm on weekends. Mandatory staff training will be scheduled once the availability of the Phonathon Student Callers is determined.
