Medical Scribe Job Opportunity

Are you a female upperclassman? Are you interested in becoming a scribe? This opportunity is for someone who is pre-health and can work either full-time or part-time for a year commitment (minimum of Monday, Wednesday, Fridays 9 AM – 5 PM). It’s a laid back clinic and the provider that you will scribe for is a professor at the U of M, so this is a great opportunity for a letter of recommendation. She’s looking mainly for a female scribe since there are a lot of patients in this practice who are uncomfortable with men in the room during doctor’s appointments.

This is a great opportunity if you are planning on taking a gap year! You would also function with more independence than a scribe, learn a TON about medicine, and there are no weekend or overnight shifts at this clinic.

Minnesota Reading Corps and Math Corps Tutor Position

The opportunity is a tutoring position offered by the Minnesota Reading and Math Corps. We are a nonprofit program of AmeriCorps that aims to end childhood illiteracy and increase math proficiency right here in Minnesota.

We fully train all of our tutors so little background is needed. This is a great way to explore education, spark interest in math or English in children’s minds, show leadership, give back to the community, and be a role model for children. The reason I chose to contact you is because your group aligns with at least one of these goals. I have personally read information on your student group and believe that your members would have an interest in our program.

We appreciate the service of our members and offer them benefits in exchange for their commitment. All tutors receive a monthly living stipend that can be anywhere from $500-$1,100 (depending on if they are part time or full time), up to $5,700 dollars in an education award that can be used for loans or tuition, the option to put student loans on forbearance, and a chance to build their resume.
