Welcome letter from

Dear Applicant,

You've made an important decision by reviewing a Residence Staff Application package. The decision to apply to the residence staff team is one that goes beyond simply looking for an employment opportunity. Being a residence staff member is a very demanding and rewarding role that affects every member of our residence community.

Employers today are seeking the kind of employable skills that are found in the leadership opportunities we offer in residence, including the ability to lead large groups of people, to "think on your feet," and to be prepared to face unpredictable situations, to exercise good mediation and interpersonal skills, and the ability to communicate effectively.

The program here is varied and exciting, and we'll give you a good start by offering a learning and development program (Staff Training) before you begin, and providing ongoing learning opportunities and support throughout the year. As a staff member, you can look forward to being involved in community-building, event programming, mediation and dispute resolution, crisis management, social issues awareness, team building, and more.

A position on residence staff is one that provides a great deal of enjoyment and is very rewarding. It's an opportunity for you to learn new skills while enabling a positive residence life experience for your fellow residents. At Western, we are very proud of our Residence Life Program, and we are pleased that you want to be a part of it.
