Hiring for Fall 2016 is complete. Please look for job postings for Spring 2017.

To find out more about our current student employment opportunities, please contact us.

The University Writing Center is partially funded by student fees. As part of our commitment to the students who support the Writing Center, we employ undergraduate and graduate students as writing consultants. Typically the University Writing Center recruits new writing consultants at the end of each semester. Mandatory trainings are held before each new semester. In addition, writing consultants are expected to attend monthly workshops as part of their obligation to the University Writing Center.

Many of our newly hired writing consultants are students who have taken ENG 408b/608b Tutoring Student Writers, which provides a theoretical foundation and practical, hands-on experience in the University Writing Center as part of the curriculum.

In general the Writing Center hires two times a year, once for fall semester and then again for the spring semester.  Job openings are posted in April  for the next fall semester and then again in November for the spring semester.
