Phonathon callers are ambassadors for Illinois Tech bridging the gap between the institution and alumni from across the county. Our callers earn money while engaging alumni in order to keep them connected to Illinois Tech. Phonathon students go through a highly selective application process and represent many different areas of the university. Most importantly our callers are raising money for Illinois Tech.
Our students talk to thousands of alumni and raise between $70,000–$100,000 every year, much of which goes toward scholarships to directly benefit our students. Our callers not only make a huge impact for Illinois Tech, but they also get a head start at their own careers by gaining key communication, persuasion, organization, and leadership skills as a part of our team.
