Project Timeline

This project has begun its recruitment phase, and I am in need of undergraduate research assistance now. The project continues for 6 months.

Duties

• Food box delivery reminder calls. WSU interns will make reminder phone calls on either Monday or Tuesday. The timing for these calls is flexible and will be discussed later in further detail. Availability for this role is the most critical. If you can do flexible Monday and Tuesday scheduling, but not the fixed times on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, we can work around that.

• Bi-monthly satisfaction survey calls: record future food box choices, and make appointment changes as necessary during reminder calls.

• Attend recruitment orientations on Tuesday nights from 6-7pm and Wednesday mornings from 10-11am until recruitment numbers are met.
