Kadimah is happy to announce that our 2018 Spring Jobs website is now open, designed to connect our university-aged staff – who are seeking work experience in May/June before they head to Camp – with professionals from our Alumni and Parent communities.

WHY DO WE OFFER THIS PROGRAM FOR OUR STAFF?

In a fiercely competitive environment, our university-aged staff worry that not gaining work experience OUTSIDE of camp may impact their ability to gain future acceptance into graduate programs or to secure employment post-graduation.

We know the skills gained in a camp setting are invaluable for any career and often sufficient, but that 6 to 8 week window following April exams until camp begins offers an excellent chance to further develop one’s skillset and resume.

HOW CAN PARENTS AND ALUMNI HELP?

Parents, Alumni – We’ve ALL been there…trying to get doors opened to secure relevant work experience.  In an increasingly competitive environment, connections are more important than ever for today’s students – and what better connection than YOU – someone with a link to our wonderful camp who has the ability to hire summer students or has a colleague with those decision rights.

Some of the benefits for Job Hosts (Employers) include:

  • Contribute in a very tangible way to the Kadimah community.
  • Help us retain great staff at camp who otherwise might not return.
  • Get work done – especially on those nagging projects you just can’t get to by goal-oriented students eager to help you while building their skill set and resume.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?

Through our Jobs Board website, prospective employers can post short-term job opportunities up to 8 weeks ending no later than June 23 while staff candidates may post their online resumes to showcase their personal ‘brand’.  The intent is for employers and candidates to connect with each other via the Jobs Board website in order to identify potential matches.

COMPENSATION?

Employee salaries or honorariums are at the discretion of the employer and are negotiated between both parties – consistent with the company’s compensation policies – and in conjunction with provincial or State Labor Law.  As a third party, Camp Kadimah does not condone unpaid internships. Kadimah does not participate in, nor benefit from, salary negotiations.

We STRONGLY recommend a written contract or agreement between both parties to create clear mutual expectations and to ensure full alignment.

HOW MAY I PARTICIPATE?

If you are a registered Kadimah 2018 staff member or a member of our Alumni or Parent community (or have colleagues who will hire) who can offer part-time, full-time or project work for a period of no longer than 8 weeks up to June 23, we invite you to enroll now so you can begin your search today.
