Student workers for transportation survey mailings
From the employer:
I am looking to recruit 2-3 students to provide some help with a series of mailings for a bicycle transportation survey. This work is part of a large scale evaluation of separated bikeways (also known as “cycle tracks”) in a number of cities around the county. Some of you may have seen the request for Survey testers I sent out yesterday for the Bicyclist portion of the evaluation. For a separate, but related part of that evaluation, we will be mailing out paper surveys to up to 12,000 people in 6 cities living in neighborhoods where recent separated bike lanes have been built. The bulk of the work will consist of:1) Stuffing envelopes with surveys and related documents – This will probably average about 8-10 hours per week from mid-May to early July; however, it may consist of a full day or two work when a mailing is imminent, and when a down time of a couple weeks before the next survey is launched.2) Data-entry for returned surveys – this task will help to fill in some of the down times in between mailings, and may last into July or August. This task may be optional if your interest or time only allows for task 1. Depending on your interest, there may be opportunities to extend work into the fall on other project tasks as well.Pay is $118-10 hours per week on average, with some bunching, from mid-May to early July (with possible extension for other project tasks).We need people with attention to detail, willingness/ability to focus on a specific task. Interest in bicycle infrastructure and research is a plus, but not essential.Please contact me (Nathan McNeil firstname.lastname@example.org) to express interest in working with us on this project, and include a resume.
