Job Description

Transfer Student Peer Mentors assist first and second semester transfer students with their socio-academic adjustment to Texas A&M University. This position involves providing academic support, referrals, and resources to new transfer students from a variety of colleges. Mentors will assist students in developing useful study tools and time management habits and offer a source of support throughout the semester. 


Who We Need

Attitude is key, and all personality types are encouraged to apply. If you are self-motivated, well-organized, dependable, possess excellent interpersonal skills, have a great attitude and time management skills— we might have a spot for you. We are not looking for a specific personality.  You may be shy or outgoing; introverted or extroverted; the life of the party or the one who holds up the wall; good with people, better with animals, best with oneself. You might on occasion get tongue tied or have never met a wall you couldn’t talk to. We’re not looking for perfection, we’re looking for motivated Aggies willing to help other Aggies.

Disclaimer: If you cannot work 10-12 hours out of 168 hours in a week, this is probably not the position for you. Only apply if you know how to manage your time wisely and (BONUS) want to get paid doing it.
