Phonathon Program at Clemson

The Clemson University Phonathon Program is an integral part of Clemson University's annual fundraising drive. The phonathon is in need of confident, well-spoken students who are able to communicate the University's funding needs to alumni, parents and friends of Clemson.

No prior experience is needed. You will receive paid telemarketing sales training. Unlike most telemarketing positions, there are no cold calls! Everyone you speak with will already have a connection to Clemson University. Your role will be to act as an ambassador of the University and turn that connection into funding to meet immediate needs here at Clemson University.
