Incorporated in 1931, Montana State University Bookstore, Inc. (MSU Bookstore), is a student-faculty owned cooperative that serves Montana State University and the surrounding Gallatin Valley. MSU Bookstore, Inc. is a subsidiary of Crossing the Divide (CTD), a Montana 501(C)(3) not-for-profit organization, dedicated to impacting higher education through lowering the cost of course materials for students.
As part of CTD, the MSU Bookstore seeks to provide the lowest possible pricing on textbooks for our students. This is done through rebating the excess profits of previous years’ sales back to our student owners through aggressive textbook discounting. This ongoing mission has allowed us to be a national leader in offering competitive course material prices to our students.
Each employee of CTD & its subsidiaries is expected to promote an atmosphere of courtesy and respect within the team by demonstrating positive leadership skills that build up the culture of the organization. Some of these skills include such things as collaborative problem-solving, calm, and inclusive speech, and practicing a teamwork mindset over a harsh or authoritative delegation style. It is also a baseline expectation that all CTD employees celebrate our customers by engaging, advocating for, and contributing to the feeling of acceptance and inclusiveness for all subsidiary customers and employees.
MSU Bookstore is looking for an executive assistant to support our Chief Executive Officer. The incumbent will manage mostly business-related tasks for the CEO such as creating reports, organizing travel and accommodation, taking minutes, and other organizational tasks. To do this role properly, the successful candidate should have a detailed understanding of the full Microsoft Office suite, be extremely fast at solving problems and have experience as an executive or administration assistant in the past. Attention to detail, a friendly attitude, and a willingness to prioritize the mission of MSU Bookstore are all essential to successfully supporting the CEO in this role.
