DMSF is looking to hire Summer Caddie Counselors!

Each summer, some of our Scholars participate in a caddie program. Between May 29 and August 2, 2015 approximately 30 of our male Scholars and 20 of our female Scholars will live in a college dorm and caddie at nearby country clubs. Male Scholars live at Lake Forest College and the female Scholars live at Elmhurst College. DMSF hires a head counselor for each program. There will be two assistant counselors for the boy’s program and two assistant counselors for the girl’s program.

Position Description:

The counselor’s job entails living with the Scholars in the dorm, transporting them to work in the morning (in vehicles provided by DMSF), picking them up at the conclusion of their work day, and then supervising them for the balance of the day. Counselors will typically have free time between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. each day, except when miscellaneous tasks require their attention. The counselors will typically also be free from Sunday evenings, when most Scholars go home, until Tuesday mornings, when counselors need to ensure all caddies have returned to work.

Responsibilities include (but not limited to):

  • Living in the dorms with the Scholars
  • Ensuring the caddies are transported to and from work each day
  • Supervising the Scholars while at the dorms, including helping to coordinate weekly evening speakers and other social programs
  • Helping to manage logistics relating to food service
  • Enforcing DMSF policies and procedures

Attention Alums looking to start or transition into a new career!

The Career Transitions Center (CTC) and The Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund are collaborating with the purpose of helping DMSF Alums secure professional employment after college. CTC works with recent college graduates and mid-career professionals by providing coaching and programming in order to teach people how to find work using social media, networking and effective resume and interviewing skills. CTC does not place participants in jobs directly; it seeks to teach them career management skills. In each of the last three years, 80% of their participants found work in six months, versus the national average of 12 months.

The Career Transitions Center of Chicago’s mission is to provide professional, emotional and spiritual support to those seeking a job, looking for meaningful work, or otherwise undergoing a career transition. CTC is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization providing professional assistance to individuals in employment transition.

Every applicant will be asked to submit an application (see link below) and provide a resume to Mr. Paul Morgan. Paul will liaise between DMSF and CTC until the acceptance and training process begins. This program is absolutely free so we encourage everyone with this need to apply! Applicants should send the required material as soon as possible.
