Call for Aides/ Job Descriptions

We are excited to announce that PISA is recruiting aides and assistants for the 2021-2022 school year. Aides and assistants are important members of the PISA team that help the Executive do their jobs. It is a great way to get to know PISA students as well as enhance relationships around the campus and with professors in our department. Being an aide is also a good first step to become an Executive in following years. All of our current PISA Executives started as aides last year! We encourage students from all years to apply for these positions, as we need diverse opinions and viewpoints in order to run our association effectively.


***Note that you can apply for as many positions as you wish, but you need to submit a unique letter of intent for each position.


To apply, submit a CV/Resume and a letter of intent (1 page maximum) to bishopspisa@gmail.com. Your letter of intent should include; your Bishop’s email, why you want to be in PISA, why you are qualified for the position, what you wish to accomplish in PISA this school year and anything else you wish to include. The deadline to submit this is May 17th 2021. There will be a second round of interviews after the 17th. These will take place on Microsoft Teams and will be administered by at least two members of the executive. After these video interviews the aides and assistants will be selected. Feel free to email us or message our social media if you have any further questions.
