Orientation Leader Hiring

Be a part of the all-new, one-week Aggie Orientation 2020, keep your summer and get paid $1,200+ for a one-and-a-half-week commitment!

600 Orientation Leaders are being recruited to welcome, guide and serve as a resource for new UC Davis students and family members in the week before fall quarter 2020. On top of creating lifelong friendships, Orientation Leaders develop resume-boosting leadership and communication skills and make a lasting impact on how a new crop of Aggies will experience UC Davis.

An Unforgettable Week

“Orientation was the most amazing experience,” says Michael Petris (’21), who was an Orientation Leader this summer (and is featured in this month’s Aggie Voices). “My whole job the entire time was to just run around and be the happy hype guy. I never felt like I was working.” Michael also feels like he gained a lot of valuable, transferable experience. “It built a lot of my personal skills of being a leader — helping people understand things easily and helping with that transition.”
