The University Writing Center (UWC) is looking for undergraduates to begin working as peer writing consultants in the fall. Students from any major
are encouraged to apply. We're also looking for a diverse staff, so students from underrrepresented populations are also strongly encouraged to apply!
As a UWC consultant, you’ll help your fellow Aggies improve their written and spoken communication, working with them both in person and online. In addition, you’ll present workshops, develop tutoring materials, and represent the UWC at campus functions.
Best of all, you’ll work in a supportive, creative environment in an on-campus job that helps you hone your interpersonal and communication skills. Working at the UWC is great preparation for graduate or professional school, as well as just about any career. Our former consultants are now lawyers, teachers, doctors, researchers, policy experts, artists, and engineers; many tell us that working at the UWC was the best job they ever had.
Do you need to be a grammar nerd to work here? Nope. You do
need to be a good student, a good writer, and comfortable talking to people. If you’ve ever helped someone learn to swim or play an instrument—and enjoyed doing so—this job might be a great fit for you.
As a consultant, you’ll earn certification from the College Reading and Learning Association, and we’ll pay you for the time you spend attending our training.
Undergrads start at $9 with the opportunity to earn more if you complete additional training.
If this job sounds like something you’d be interested in, apply now!
We’ll be reviewing applications and conducting interviews in late March and on into April.
If you have any questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The UWC is also looking for a student to work approximately 15 hours a week as a graphic designer. Previous design experience or training is required. You’ll have the opportunity to create work for both print and online environments. This is a great resume-building position for a young designer.
