Join Our Team

The Conference Assistant (CA) is a vital role to the Conference Services operation. Each summer our campus welcomes anywhere from 50-60 camp and conference groups to campus and the CAs serve as the first contact for those summer groups. CAs serve as an ambassador for UAB with these groups.

As a CA you will gain more skills in customer service, time-management, problem-solving, critical thinking and teamwork which will be important skills for you to have when you start looking for jobs after college. You will also get to meet people from all over the country with different backgrounds and experiences.

  • “I enjoyed being a CA because it allowed me to gain some awesome friends!”

    - Kayla (2016 CA Team)

  • “ I learned a lot of great customer service skills and what it is like working in housing at UAB.”

    - Quinton (2016 CA Team)

  • “I really enjoyed the opportunity to see another side of campus life! I learned a lot about the structure and procedures of housing.”

    - Ash (2017 CA Team)

  • “My summer working as a CA was the best summer I have had as a college student because I was surrounded by teammates who motivated me to success in one of the hardest classes I had to take at UAB. Not only did they motivate me, but we had a blast creating a safe and fun environment for campers to stay at UAB.”

    - Gabbi (2017 CA Team)

  • “I wish I had known how close I was going to become with my fellow CAs. It was the pivotal point that showed me that college isn’t just about academics, it’s about the memories you make while you are here.”

    - Zac (2016 CA Team)

  • “Who knew late night laundry-folding sessions could be fun? It can be with a team like ours! I also loved getting to know future students when they would come to stay for orientation nights!”

    - Erica (2017 CA Team)

  • “Throughout my two years of being a CA, I always enjoyed the family environment that I worked in. I learned a lot including great customer service skills and time management.”

    - Sarah (2016 & 2017 CA Team)

  • “Being a CA is an incredible experience to develop skills in customer service, teamwork, and adaptability. With the training provided, and the incredible support form your supervisors and co-workers, you will be well equipped to address the issue at hand. Overall, being a CA was a truly unforgettable experience.”
