Thank you for your interest in the Conference Assistant (CA) position for the summer of 2016 with the Department of Residence Life & Housing.

This website provides an overview of the CA position and the process to apply to be a CA. Please read materials closely and make sure to attend an information session for more information.

Overview of the CA Position
CAs are on-site liaisons between Suffolk University and summer conference participants. They serve as the initial point of contact for any person entering the residence halls. They are responsible for addressing the needs of summer guests. They help to create a friendly and helpful atmosphere by greeting and receiving conference guests and other visitors. These live-in, summer positions will challenge CAs’ abilities and allow development of valuable skills in communication and organization. Although weekly schedules may vary, CAs will work approximately 15 hours per week in addition to participating in the on-call rotation (approximately 1 night per week).
