Montgomery County Regional Tourism Office
The Montgomery County Regional Tourism Office is responsible for promoting the destination to visitors and to also assist visitors and residents with area information when in the market. Currently, they have two locations. Each location has a site supervisor and an information desk where area information is available. One position is at the County Government Center in Christiansburg, and the other is at the Community Arts Information Office on College Avenue in Blacksburg.
Beginning in August, they will have one work-study student in Christiansburg and one in Blacksburg. They would like to augment this staffing with 1-2 volunteers, per site. The Christiansburg site operational hours would be scheduled during the work week of Monday-Friday, sometime between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. The Blacksburg site would be similar however, they also want to staff that site during the big visitation events such as: Virginia Tech home games, graduations, and family weekends. This could involve weekends and evenings.
These positions require regularly interfacing with the public. It is a great opportunity for someone who would like to work with the public in a fun environment. It is a plus to be familiar with the area, but this is something in which they are able to provide training if needed. You may choose the dates and times that work with your schedule. Call RSVP to sign up or for more information.
