Student Employment Opportunity

The Multiliteracies Center is hiring undergraduate student coaches to begin working Fall 2013. We look for coaches from diverse majors and backgrounds, and we do NOT require applicants to be experts in writing. Surprised? Don’t be. The job is much different than you think.
Those students who have worked in the center often describe it as “one of the most important pieces of my academic career at Michigan Tech.” The skills gained as a coach in the Multiliteracies Center are required by future employers, yet the academic curriculum doesn’t always develop those skills. Coaches have an advantage when they go on the job market.
There will be an informal pizza and information session on Tuesday, March 26 at 6:00 PM in Walker 107.
Applications are available in the center (Walker 107) or online ( Applications are due by Wednesday, March 27.
Contact Kirsti Arko with any questions.
