Dear Conference Assistant Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in the Summer Conference Assistant positions available through the Departments of Residence Life and Dining Services and of Conference Planning and Operation. We are looking for enthusiastic students who will help make our Summer Conference Housing program a success!

Conference Assistants are responsible for a variety of duties including welcoming guests to The University of Memphis, checking guests in and out, responding to emergencies, supervising desk activities, inspecting rooms to insure they are ready for conference groups, and going "beyond the call of duty" to assist guests in any way possible.

It is a requirement of the job to live on campus; therefore, Conference Assistants are provided with a room for the summer. Pay will be a stipend of $1,160.00 plus an hourly rate of $7.25 for hours worked at the desk. Being a Conference Assistant will also look great on your resume!

Please read the attached job description thoroughly. Your completed application, three (3) Reference forms and the Background Check form are due in the Residence Life Office by 04:30 p.m., on Wednesday, February 13th. Please make sure your references are aware of this deadline. Those who may serve as references are Resident Advisors, employers/ supervisors, former employers/ supervisors, instructors/ professors/ teachers, former instructors/ professors/ teachers, NO FRIENDS and NO RELATIVES.. After reviewing all the files, those who are chosen to be interviewed will receive an INVITATION. In responding to the INVITATION, you will sign up for an interviewing time. Interviews will be conducted between February 25th and March 1st. 

If you are a returning Conference Assistant, the returning CA Questionaire and the Background Check Form are due by 4:30 pm on February 13th. You do not need reference forms or an application.

Training begins on Monday, May 13th.

Again, thank you for your interest. If you have any questions, please contact us at or at 678-2295. In addition, you can attend the optional information session at 3pm on February 6th in the Richardson Towers Dining Commons.
