Marketing & Events Planner
NOTE: “Work study: Eligible students only” is not a requirement for application as indicated by Handshake, disregard that message. Students can apply for all on-campus jobs regardless of their Federal Work Study status.
Overview: LaunchNET student employees are undergraduate or graduate students with an interest in entrepreneurship, innovation, and/or creative collaboration who will work with the LaunchNET team in specific areas but also as part of an overall team. Students will take ownership of project areas (as designated in title), while operating as part of a startup environment, and some events call for “all hands on deck.”
Ideal candidates enjoy a friendly, supportive team setting, and are self-starting/directing while being comfortable asking for support when needed. Experience in entrepreneurship is not necessary but an interest is beneficial. Willingness to learn new processes, tools, and engage with a wide variety of collaborators within and outside the university a definite plus.
