Student Technology Consultants (Undergraduate Student Hourly Position)

Are you someone who enjoys learning about new technologies and teaching them to others? ASSETT (Arts and Sciences Support of Education Through Technology) is looking to hire two Student Technology Consultants (STCs). An STC is an undergraduate student who enjoys learning about and using a variety of technologies; is not afraid to present to a large group; and is comfortable working with both peers and faculty.

Student Technology Consultants work closely with Arts & Sciences faculty who are interested in integrating technology into their courses. An STC consults with the instructor on a one-on-one basis to determine the needs of their course, investigate potential tools, and provide a demonstration of the selected technologies.  The STC then provides technical support for both the instructor and their students.

Student Technology Consultants are also trained to assist the Visualizing Instructional Practices Service (VIPS) by collecting objective observation data.  Finally, the Student Technology Consultants support the ASSETT mission by helping their staff with various technology-related projects.

This is an undergraduate hourly position for 8-12 hours per week, starting at $12 per hour.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Strong interpersonal skills

  • The ability to work independently and within a team

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills

  • The ability and desire to learn new technologies quickly

Having an interest or experience with video editing, Adobe Creative Cloud, WordPress, and other web publishing tools is a plus. 

If you are interested in becoming a Student Technology Consultant, send your resume and a one-page cover letter explaining why you would make a great STC to Jacie Moriyama. Applicants selected for an interview will be asked to give a five-minute presentation on a technology of their choice to the current Student Technology Consultants.  These positions are open until filled.
