What we do...
The IT Service Center provides IT computing support to the University of Colorado Boulder community over the phone, in person, and via email. We receive calls with questions that vary from "How do I access UCB Wireless" to "How do I set-up Outlook for the CU Boulder Exchange service”? to "How can I set-up a network printer?” just to name a few. Students have opportunities to be challenged every day, learn new things, help customers and co-workers with questions, and interact in a collaborative atmosphere.
Students at the IT Service Center are given the chance to learn and test out new applications and operating systems, contribute to the Knowledge Management database and are exposed to the latest in technology available at CU Boulder.
What your role would be...
IT Service Center analysts have the opportunity to do everything that the Help Desk does, including answering questions over the phone, by email, and helping people who come in to IT Service Center. Student analysts also have the opportunity to participate in projects such as software testing and technical documentation.
We will train you in the various services that we support. The knowledge we provide will be practical and useful in the future. In return, we ask that you bring your knowledge, experience, opinions, resources and ideas about customer service, problem solving, and troubleshooting, and help us to provide the best customer computer support imaginable.
