Jobs at Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies
Annually, We Employ Staff to Fill:
Hear From Our Community
Our Residential Staff work to support the academic and emotional needs of our summer program participants. This life-changing teaching and mentorship opportunity entices many staff members to return year after year.
The residential staff fostered an inclusive environment. Their caring nature shined through in every circumstance, and whenever I had any issues, I felt comfortable going to them for help.

Residential and Operations Staff Candidate Questions
Is there an application deadline?
Applications for each position will be accepted until all openings for that position have been filled. Once filled, we will make a note on that position’s page on this employment website.
What does the interview process for residential staff involve?
For local Stanford students: The first stage is a group interview, which lasts about an hour and a half, sometimes longer for larger groups. During the group interview, there will be a mix of individual questions and a team activity. The goal of the group interview is to get to know the candidates, as well as to provide more information about the programs and positions. Candidates selected from the first interview will be invited to an individual 30-minute follow-up interview to discuss interests and background so as to determine the best program and position fit.
Interviews for the Head Counselor position will begin once the Residential Counselor hiring process is complete, and we will draw from the pool of Residential Counselors who have already been hired.
For out-of-area candidates and for all other positions (e.g., Assistant Residential Director, Camp Nurse, Program Manager, Residential Director) — video call interviews will be scheduled individually.
