Woodstock 2012 Vacancies, Updated
(grabbed directly from http://woodstockschool.in/Employment/)
Looking for a job over here? Here’s an updated list of the new vacancies at Woodstock. If you’re interested in something like residence staff, you could always email HR – they might not have something listed now, but I know there’s at least one staffer in the dorms who they would like to replace. I believe things are in the Catch-22 of “if we list the position, they’ll know we want to fire them; if we don’t have a replacement available before we fire them, we’ll be out of luck.” People who like working with teenagers, are willing to play the role of “parent” for a bunch of students, and who can be positive role models and accept additional responsibilities (chaperoning trips, Going-Down Day, etc) are the sorts of people that should apply for Residence positions.
