Many high schools and colleges are opting for virtual graduations this year and, of course, they’d like those events to be both successful and memorable.

That’s where you come in!

VIPdesk Connect is now hiring Seasonal Customer Service Representatives (Brand Ambassadors as they are referred to within the company) to, “assist school administrators, students, and virtual graduation attendees and utilize a variety of resources and information to assist customers in a courteous and professional manner that supports and reinforces brand standards, always with a focus on providing best-in-class customer service.”

Pay is not mentioned in the job post, however, we have recently seen a range of $12-$18/hour for similar positions with the company.

NOTE: Please DO NOT CALL the company unless you are invited for a phone screening. They state on their site, “While we would like to speak to everyone that has an interest in working at VIPdesk, the volume of resumes does not allow us to perform this courtesy.”
