If you are passionate about writing, are committed to your own development as a writer, and have an interest in mentoring or teaching, you should absolutely get involved in the CEW!
We employ consultants at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels.
We value consultants who have strong interpersonal skills and are interested in the power of one-to-one teaching or counseling. We love to hire students who have a history of overcoming obstacles and crossing borders, who are multilingual and/or multidialectical and have experience working cross culturally. Our goal is a diverse community in every sense: disciplinary, racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, religious, gender identity and sexual orientation. We also value consultants with learning differences.
We also hire work study students for the important role of welcoming writers and helping them to schedule appointments in our physical locations.
For more information about how to apply to work in the Center for Excellence in Writing , see the applicable information below.
The course HMN 380: Writing Center Theory and Practice is an undergraduate prerequisite for work in the CEW. This course is offered in Fall semesters and will prepare students to work in the CEW the following semester. (Please note that taking the course does not guarantee that you will be hired to work in the CEW.) Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Send an email of inquiry to email@example.com. If we are hiring, we will request a CV, a writing sample and an interview!
The most rewarding part of working with writers at the CEW is helping people feel like they’ve been heard. Everyone has a story to tell or an insight to share, and occasionally we run into obstacles in getting our message across. It’s a very exciting opportunity when I get to help tear down those walls. When it 'clicks' with a writer that what they’re saying matches up with what they’re thinking, I feel like I’ve had an impact.
