ADVANCE is accepting applications for July 4 - 24, 2021!

This is absolutely the best summer job a college or grad student could hope for! While staffers work long hours, they have an incredible time, and can positively influence our students.

Staff members must arrive on Northwestern State's campus Wednesday, June 30, 2021, by 3:00 pm to move into the dorm and begin orientation. Staff members will leave campus on Saturday, July 24, 2021, when all supplies are placed in storage.

The starting salary for staff members is $1,400. Staff members are required to live in the dormitory utilized by ADVANCE and eat all meals with students and fellow employees in the cafeteria.

All staff applications must be received by March 12, 2021. Our office will then contact you by phone or email in late March to schedule a phone interview.

A background check is a condition of employment for all Northwestern State employees.
