The Yale Office of Sustainability is seeking part-time student positions and full time fellowships. See below for more details.
Yale Recycling seeks students to serve as Spring Salvage Program Assistants leading up to and during the Spring Salvage program in May 2014. Spring Salvage Program Assistants sort donated and recyclable items from student residences at the end of the semester and help facilitate year-end move-out operations.
Work will consist primarily of sorting furniture, room furnishings and other items discarded by students and moving them to specified locations for donation, recycling, and trash. Spring Salvage Program Assistants will serve as liaisons between Facilities/Recycling and the key players within their work areas: custodial staff, hired contractors, fire, master, dean, dining services and students.
Spring Salvage will take place over two phases in May: Phase 1: underclass move-out, April 29 through May 9; Phase 2: Senior move-out, May 19 through May 21. In April, work will consist mostly of preparation and training.
Spring Salvage Program Assistants will be managed by Facilities/ Recycling and the Office of Sustainability. The Office will work with students to obtain post-term housing, as needed.
Deadline for applications: Friday, March 7th. Please submit application online through the Yale Student Employment website and send a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Interviews will be conducted the week after spring break (March 24th – 28th).
