Part-time Job Opportunity

The University of Michigan Displaced New Orleans Residents Study will gather information

from 1800 respondents who lived in selected addresses in Orleans Parish in August 2005 at

the time that Hurricane Katrina struck the city. The interviews are expected to average

60 minutes and they will be conducted by phone when possible. Because we have to

locate residents from three years ago, we anticipate the need for a large amount of tracking,

both online and face-to-face, and will be staffing those positions as well.


Applicants for this project will be evaluated for these qualities:

• Good communication skills
• Computer proficiency (especially important for IT applicants)
• Ability to meet deadlines
• Ability to work independently
• Attentiveness to detail
• Willingness to learn and continually improve performance
• Flexible schedule: 20-25 hours per week during day, evening, and weekend hours
• Ability to work as part of a team
• Willing and available to work FTF in a variety of neighborhoods (FTF applicants)
• Prior data collection experience (FTF or phone) a plus

Candidates will be trained on all aspects of the necessary tasks required to perform the job.

Pay rate for the New Orleans area is $12.00/hr. Interviewers are reimbursed for mileage

and expenses.  An additional $2.00/hr. differential will be given to hires who

certify with the University as Spanish speaking.  Higher starting rates for applicants

with prior data collection experience may be available.
