Work for Client Support Services!
Information Technology hires students throughout the semester to work for our Client Support Services team in our IT Computer Labs, at the IT Help Desk in TE 113, and as assistants to our Client Support Services staff. We have a wide range of opportunities available, such as IT Student Lab Attendant or IT Student Phone Operators. Internal candidates can strive to become IT Student Support Representatives, our highest level of student worker and one with the most responsibility and reward. Students wishing for more technical and hands on experience with repairing equipment may be interested in the IT Student Intern positions.
Typically we hire most of our staff at the end of the current semester to work the following semester, and at the beginning of the semester to fill any vacancies. However, we do accept applications year round.
We are currently hiring up to five student workers. These students will be trained as IT Student Lab Attendants and IT Student Phone Operators, and will be hired with the potential to become IT Student Support Representatives.
Applicants do not have to have prior technical support experience, but should be:
- willing to work a set work schedule each week (commonly around 15 hours per week)
- willing to work as early as 7:00 am and as late as 12 midnight, including some weekend shifts
- willing to learn about supporting PCs, Macs, wireless devices, and other support issues common to campus users
- be in good academic standing

- All majors considered, with a preference for INFO or COSC
