Are you interested in a part-time job? Do you pride yourself on being customer-friendly, proactive, and reliable? Do you get excited at the thought of working in an environment full of science and technology wonders?
If so, we invite you to check out our Hiring Thursdays at LSC! On May 3, May 24, and June 7 from 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm, LSC will be interviewing candidates for the part-time positions of Hospitality Associate and Interpretation Associate.
If you are interested in either of these roles, please review the requirements below and then RSVP for one of our hiring events by calling 201.253.1569, Mondays – Fridays, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
You will be the person that helps to inspire thousands to play and learn. You will connect with and delight our guests. You will help our guests with any questions they have about our exhibits and also develop creative solutions to any issues that may arise for them. Liberty Science Center is where the future comes to play and you will be “getting your play on” daily!
Our team is driven, collaborative, and entrepreneurial. Energy and passion power our mission and we are looking for candidates who share that passion to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers and excite learners of all ages about the power, promise, and pure fun of science and technology!
We are hiring for two different roles. Please read the descriptions below and note the differences between the two. While they are both customer service driven roles, the Interpretation Associate (IA) role requires familiarity with basic science concepts and ability to present to the public.
LSC has 700,000 guests walk through our doors annually. The Hospitality Associate’s primary focus is to welcome, facilitate, and enhance the guest experience at LSC in each of our exhibition spaces and throughout the Science Center. Welcoming guests is just one of the many things that you will be doing as a Hospitality Associate. Want to see (or not see) what it is like to crawl in an 80 foot, pitch black tunnel? Have you ever wondered what stars sit in the night sky? You will experience science and technology adventures daily as a Hospitality Associate.

Do you have exceptional presentation skills and a love of science?
