WELCOME TO THE NEW ‘KADIMAH SPRING JOBS PROGRAM’
Kadimah is proud to announce its new online jobs website, designed to connect our university-aged staff seeking work experience in May/June before they head to Camp with professionals from our Alumni and Parent communities.
WHY ARE WE LAUNCHING THIS NEW PROGRAM?
The Staff’s Perspective:
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.
The Employer’s Perspective:
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 a parent or alumnus linked to Kadimah who has the ability to hire summer students.
Some of the benefits for Job Hosts (Employers) include:
- Contribute in a very tangible way to the Kadimah community.
- Help 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 24 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.
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 local Labor Law. As a third party, Camp Kadimah does not participate in, nor benefit from, salary negotiations.
HOW MAY I PARTICIPATE?
If you are a registered Kadimah 2017 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 24, we invite you to enroll now so you can begin your search today.
