WORK AT THE HIVE

We are accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year to be reviewed April 2020. Please fill out the contact form below or email hive@claremont.edu for the job description and application.

Here at the Hive, we love being a launching pad for curious and collaborative minds like yours! We offer a space where students on staff can intentionally play and explore their creative potential in variety of ways. We are helping to lead the renaissance of liberal arts education and with our evolving environment, you could have a hand in the next iteration of the Hive machine. With that comes an opportunity to work on self-directed projects while collaborating with professional designers and like-minded peers.

We look forward to incorporating your skills and individual experiences into the Hive’s future happenings!

Our student staffers work closely with full-time staff:

  • Supporting the smooth operation of the Hive
  • Keeping the space well stocked, organized, and clean for every user
  • Collaborating on human-centered approaches to developing the Hive as a 5C resource
  • Developing makerspace and skill share programming
  • Collecting demographic and qualitative research from various platforms
  • Photographing and digitally archiving events
  • Storytelling and social media strategy

Hive student staffers have a wide array of skills that they can continue to develop in tandem with the growth of the Hive, and we love giving them the space to do so! 

  • Have you attended events put on by the Hive?
  • Are you familiar with the Hive space?
  • Do you have an interest in bringing together 5C students in one place?
  • Are you motivated to practice and increase your design, maker, media, writing, and/or all-around varied skillset?
  • Do you have time for our required monthly lunch meetings (paid), as well as team meetings?
  • Do you want to expand you and your classmates’ engagement with your disciplines?
  • Would you like to offer a workshop here?
  • Can you work 6-9+ hours a week including evenings and weekends?

We think that Hive student staffers should:

  • Understand our six core principles 
  • Have a collaborative mindset
  • Have a bias toward hospitality and making the Hive an open and inclusive space
    • Have a Heart for Hosting—­­ lots of users come into the Hive every day and we strive to do our best to help them explore and expand their creative confidence
    • Continuously ask themselves, “What can I do to make this space the best it can be for everyone who walks through the door?”
  • Be aware that the Hive is a space constantly in flux!
    • Be comfortable with ambiguity—as a space with a heavy bent towards prototyping and iteration, many features of the Hive are often not the same day to day
  • Be responsible and personally accountable
  • Be a self-starter who can work independently
  • Not see mistakes as failures, but as opportunities for growth!
