ADV: Bates Fund Student Caller (S9803X)
Summary, Scope, and Responsibilities
The student calling program operates during both the fall and winter semesters, and four weeks during short term. Calling shifts will be held Sunday evenings 6-8:30PM and Monday through Wednesday afternoons, from 1:30PM-4:00PM. Students are required to work a minimum of two shifts per week. Students will be responsible for contacting alumni and parents to solicit donations for the Bates Fund through an automated calling system. All phone calls will act as a follow up to a direct mail solicitation which has been previously sent by the Advancement Office. Students will be required to ask for a charitable donation to the college, and handle any questions or objections that constituent might have about Bates.
Student Callers are ambassadors of the College, as they may be one of the few contacts that a particular alum or parent has with the school. The students therefore have a responsibility to be as professional and courteous as possible in their dealings with the targeted audience. Performance will be evaluated by student calling supervisors and staff manager on a regular basis.
