Help Desk is hiring for the fall semester

Help! key

Help Desk is a student-run organization within ITS that provides support for nearly all student questions about technology. We fix your computer, repair your Internet connection, disinfect your viruses, and make your iPhone and game console work with Clean Access… all in a fun, student-oriented environment.

And we want you to be one of us! We are now hiring new consultants for the fall semester.

We offer:

  • Flexible hours to fit your schedule
  • guaranteed job for next semester
  • Competitive wages to fatten your wallet
  • Paid training and valuable job experience
  • High potential to join the management team
  • The satisfaction that comes from helping fellow students

We’re hiring now for the fall semester, so you’ll have a guaranteed job when you arrive on campus—no competing with the hordes of freshmen looking for jobs in the fall. You’ll also get to come back to campus early for our annual Dorm Storm event! And you’ll have just a few training sessions to attend this semester, where you’ll get free food. Mm, free food.

No experience is required, you don’t have to be a computer science major (in fact, most of us aren’t), and we hire regardless of work-study eligibility. Freshmen and sophomores are preferred.

Stop by SCIE 116 to pick up an application or ask us questions, or download our short application form and submit it electronically. Applications are due by Friday, April 17.

Help disadvantaged students ace the SAT!

Katie Hanna ’09 writes:

Looking for a great way to give back to the greater community? Wesleyan’s Let’s Get Ready college prep program is looking for coaches! SAT Coaches volunteer for one or two nights a week to help students in low-income areas get into college.

Let’s Get Ready expands access to college in America by mobilizing, equipping, and empowering a movement of college students helping high school students get to college. Through a network of campus and community-based chapters, Let’s Get Ready’s trained college student volunteers provide disadvantaged students with intensive SAT preparation, college advising, and the powerfully relevant role-models and mentors they need to succeed.

As an SAT Coach with Let’s Get Ready, you will teach math and/or critical reading and writing SAT prep. LGR will provide you with training and curricula. You will guide small groups of high school students through the college process you recently completed. Most importantly, you will become a role model and integral part of many high school students’ academic and personal lives.

This is a volunteer position, but work-study compensation is available to eligible students.
