Project Manager/Event Planner

The Project Manager/Event Planner is a position that is created mainly for prospective members of the Volunteer Committee. The person will work on a project basis to manage volunteering events held within and outside the Baruch community. This position involves coordinating event logistics, effectively communicating important relevant information to volunteers, working under deadline pressure, and overseeing the entire flow of an event. Since this role requires a person who is motivated, detail-oriented, and organized, taking on this position will give the person a taste of what a managerial role is like, give an opportunity to meet new people, and perhaps expose him/her to different career choices.
