There is a job opening at the Accessible Education Office at Harvard, which is affiliated but not directly connected to my job in the Adaptive Technology Lab. This job would deal less with the technological side of disability and more with the administrative and student-facing side.

If you're going to apply, as well as going through the Harvard site shoot me a copy of your cover letter and resume, and I'll make sure they get to the right people.

As a frequent user of these services at my own school, I'm glad Harvard is hiring people to work in that role! (My own school sadly didn't care enough to do more than put it in the Dean of Students' job description.)

Sadly, I think it often is a problem of money more than care. :(

I could buy that, but with how ridiculous RPI's tuition costs are, I'm still a little skeptical. :)

Good luck to anyone applying for this job!

sounds interesting. any idea of the salary? also, the description makes it sound like you do need SOME technical background...is that true?

The job is pay grade 054, meaning salary range of $43,800 - $69,057 based on experience, etc. I'm a 053, so if you get this I will glare at you for your extra $3-6k a year. ;) (Source: http://www.employment.harvard.edu/benefits/compensation/)

I honestly don't know the extent to which they use technology outside of a normal office environment. The description does read like they're looking for someone to maintain the website and possibly some client databases, though. I couldn't tell you how much the technical background is a hard requirement.

Oh, neat! It is close enough to my area of expertise that I would consider applying, except for the "three years of experience" requirement--I only have about 1-2 years of direct experience interfacing with clients in this context. :(

But thank you for posting; it is good to know that they are hiring for this! :)

It is my experience with job hunting in general that the "X years of experience" should be taken more as a guideline than as an absolute - your actual qualifications can and often do outweigh a relative lack of experience. If the job interests you, I'd say go for it - the only thing you have to lose is the time you spend filling out the application!

(Hope the unsolicited advice from a random person you don't know isn't too intrusive, my apologies if it is!)

Oh no worries about providing advice; I appreciate it! (Though I did not see your response until now :)
