Writing & Reading Center Employment
Working as a Reader in the Writing and Reading Center is an opportunity that provides academic and professional growth. Not just for English majors, the Writing and Reading Center gives all employees experience mentoring fellow students, presenting at academic conferences, engaging with a variety of writing, and preparing for multiple careers. Successful Writing and Reading Center Readers are not only adept at writing, but are able to effectively communicate with fellow students.
Readers must have completed English 111 and 112 (or the equivalent) and receive a recommendation from an instructor. The hours are flexible around class schedules and can occur any time that the Writing and Reading Center is open. Student employees cannot work more than 20 hours a week, though the average in the Writing and Reading Center is closer to 8-10. Training will be provided for all employees both before each semester and throughout the year. See the job description (PDF) for more information.
Applications to work in the Writing and Reading Center for the 2015-2016 school year are due no later than Friday, May 1st. Contact Megan Ward, Writing and Reading Center Coordinator, at (231) 995-1186 or firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
