PSO Expeditionary Coordinator (1 available position)
Overview
The Expeditionary has been at Puget Sound since the early 1970's and was initially managed by athletics
and then by the information center. In 1999 the Expeditionary became part of the expanded outdoor
programs just after Puget Sound Outdoors was created in 1998. Since this time the Expeditionary has
become more integrated into PSO and now the two are complete dependents. Today the Expeditionary is
the place where participants register for trips and trainings, rent equipment and check-out resources to
plan personal trips. It is meant to be a welcoming and open space where anyone can come to get involved,
stay involved and/or rent gear.

As the PSO Expeditionary Manager you will work with Expeditionary staff to plan and execute daily
tasks and long-term projects, work with the PSO Program Coordinators to envision and plan larger PSO
projects, such as OLE, and work to improve the systems that overlap with the trips and the Expy. The
Expy Manager is also in charge of managing the finances/register and paperwork for the Expeditionary.

This is a highly self-motivated and self-initiating position and you will be expected to run staff meetings,
create and foresee projects, and spend time in the Expeditionary working with the staff, Program
Coordinators, and customers to constantly improve all aspects of the Expeditionary. It is crucial that you
are involved, invested, and passionate about making the Expy and PSO a positive influence on the Puget
Sound campus. Please see the official CES Job Description on Page 13.

The successful candidate will have the strongest combination of the following:
• Strong leadership skills
• Strong collaboration, coordination, facilitation and delegation skills
• Experience and involvement with Puget Sound Outdoors
• Experience working with and using outdoor equipment
• Ability to self-motivate in the work-place
• Organization skills
• Open communication skills both oral and written
• Problem-solving skills

Time Requirements
• 9-months, September to May
• Approximately 9 hours per week. You will have the ability to set your own hours and some weeks you
   will find that you might spend more than 9 hours in the Expy.

 II.        Leadership and Outdoor Experience Log (see example on next page)
           We recommend doing this before the reflective questions.

What’s this, you may ask?
This is a compilation of all your leadership and outdoors experiences. This includes anything and everything from family day
hikes and camping trips to professional guiding experience or outdoor courses through NOLS/IWLS/Outward Bound, etc.—as
well as previous leadership positions here at Puget Sound, from high school, or from outside employment/volunteer work that
is not necessarily connected to the outdoors.

Why is it important, you may ask? First, it’s a good tool to reflect on your own strengths in the outdoors, as well as a way
to pinpoint places where you may need more experience. Second, PSO student coordinators should have a solid understanding
of the fundamental skills and risks associated with outdoors, as they will be responsible for organizing trips, events, and
trainings for their respective coordinator position.

A word on tailoring your experience log to the position(s) for which you are applying…
Please include experience related to the position(s) for which you are applying. For example, include all previous bike shop
volunteer or mechanic experience if you are applying to Bike Shop Coordinator; previous gear/supervising experience if
applying for Expeditionary Coordinator; previous climbing experience/training/certifications if you are applying for Climbing
Coordinator; and previous trip & event planning/community organizing experience if you are applying for PSO Program
Coordinator.

                                                                                                                       Page 6
     In general, this experience log should demonstrate that you are adequately prepared for the challenges of a coordinator position.
