Job Description
Wellesley's admission process is based on a thorough, detailed, and holistic evaluation of each candidate for admission.

Due to tax and labor laws, candidates must live in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont or Connecticut.

The Seasonal Reader will work in partnership with admission counselors in reviewing applications of candidates for admission.

Occasional reading or committee work on weekends may be required. Reading and committee work will be conducted remotely. All readers will be required to attend reader training in the fall, which may be in person at the Admission Office or remote. Additional mandatory training sessions may be offered through webinars and other online tools at the reader's convenience.
