Are you outgoing? Have you always wanted to entertain a crowd? Are you a Golden Hawk enthusiast?
Well then this opportunity is for you! Wilfrid Laurier University, Department of Athletics and Recreation is looking for a new Golden Hawk mascot. An applicant should be an enthusiastic Golden Hawk supporter who is looking to make a presence at Laurier varsity games and other non-sport related events. You must be able to help motivate and encourage the crowd during these events. The mascot should be extremely outgoing and energetic and always ready to put on a show.
Due to the size of the uniform, the applicant should be between 5’6” and 6’ tall, although this is not a must. The applicant must be a current Wilfrid Laurier University student. Also the Hawk interacts with children on a regular basis, so the applicant must be good with children. Finally, an applicant should understand the secrecy involved in being a mascot. The Golden Hawk is mute and gender neutral and we would encourage the incumbent to do their best to keep their identity a secret both in and out of character.
Please send a resume and cover letter – outlining why you’d make a great Golden Hawk – to Heather Ferris, Coordinator: Sponsorship & Events, by Friday, December 5, 2008. For selected candidates, formal auditions will take place on Tuesday, January 6, 2009.
Applications should be submitted to the Athletics and Recreation office at the Athletic Complex or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
