Part-Time Administrative Assistant
MedStar Washington Hospital Center

~$18 per hour
~19 hours per week on average, flexible

Dear MTS Students (and anyone interested):

I am writing to advertise an excellent opportunity for part-time work available for immediate hire at the nearby MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The Emergency Preparedness Department at MWHC has made this flexible and well paying part-time position available to Institute and CUA students for over a decade now. I had this job for two years while I was in the Ph.D. program and left in May when I took a full-time job at the Diocese of Arlington.

Job responsibilities include the full range of standard office tasks. Basic proficiency in Microsoft Word and Excel and the like is required, along with strong organizational skills for maintenance of the office filing system. Copying, printing, scanning, document creation, taking or placing the occasional business phone call, running errands here and there throughout the four-hospital campus, and other odd jobs make up the general substance of the work. Our role is to provide support for Wendy Clark, the main administrative coordinator for the department director, Craig DeAtley, who in turn oversees emergency preparedness at two of the four hospitals on campus and contributes to similar initiatives at the city-wide, regional, and national levels. Pete Jensen is the assistant director, and Henry Wickus and Denisha Brinkley of the John Paul II Institute MTS program are already working as assistants in the office.

The pace of the work tends to ebb and flow, but even in its busiest seasons I never found it too much to balance with studies and family life. The work is not mentally draining or physically exhausting in the way that some part-time positions can be, and the need for occasional time off to prepare for exams or finish papers or make a trip home is understood.

Our office is a 20-minute walk from campus and accessible via free shuttle service from the Brookland and Columbia Heights metro stations. In addition, the hospital has a chapel where the Catholic chaplaincy celebrates Mass daily over the lunch break.

Please send resumes to wendy.g.clark@medstar.net and by all means pass this information along to anyone else who might be interested.

Thank you and best wishes,
Alexander Wolfe
