Full-Time Opportunities

For important tips on writing cover letters, resumes, proposals, and general infomation on applying for full-time jobs in the AMS click here.

Working full-time in the AMS as a Commissioner, Director, Officer, or Manager is a great opportunity to put your strong leadership, communication, and organizational skills to use. The AMS defines full-time paid positions as those with a time commitment of 25-40 hours per week. Both 8 month and 12 month full-time positions are available as indicated below. The out-of-classroom experience that you will gain from working for the AMS will enhance not only your own Queen's experience, but the experiences of others who will be impacted by your contributions.

It is not required for applicants to have any related experience for these full-time positions, although they will be asked to relate the experience they do have to the position they are applying for. Absolutely no prior AMS experience is required. Ultimately, the AMS wants to employ hard-working and enthusiastic people to make a difference in the Queen's community.

Positions Available

Hiring of full-time staff takes place in February and March of each year. We offer both 12-month (May-April) and some 8-month (September-April) positions. The AMS strives for 100% turnover in all positions each year and students who do not have previous experience in a full-time position are given preference over those who have worked full-time for the AMS previously.
