Hiring Process for Camp La Vida

October 15, 2017-February 15, 2018 applications are accepted. Applications are accepted until all positions are filled, so check with us if it is after February 15, 2018.

Application and references must be submitted (references should be in sealed/signed envelope or ask reference to submit them online) to our SC WMU Office.

Once we’ve received your application and references, we will review your application and contact you for an interview. It is your job to make sure the application and reference are all submitted. Interviews will be scheduled in Columbia at the SCBC Building, 190 Stoneridge Dr. Columbia SC starting in January until all positions are filled. At times we are in different parts of the state and so it is possible to schedule an interview closer to you.

After the interview you will be notified if a job is offered within 2-3 weeks.

If at any time after you’ve submitted your application you decide to make alternate plans for employment please contact us, as it would be helpful to know. Dates for summer employment are June 4-August 4, 2018.
