Working at Consulting
Working at Consulting
The Consulting service at Consulting offers students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience as technology consultants and trainers. Consulting with and training UO instructors on the use of instructional and scholarly publishing technologies can be fun, interesting, challenging and look great on a resume.
Most students employed at Consulting work for us for at least a year, at 6 to 10 hours/week.
Why Work at Consulting
We know that first and foremost you are here at the UO to learn, be a student and get your degree. But your learning does not have to be restricted to the classroom. Working at Consulting will provide you not only professional work experience, but also with time to improve your skills, learn the latest educational technologies and expand your understanding of how to communicate and teach effectively.
Working for Consulting is also an opportunity for technology training. We expect that new employees we hire start out with an unusually deep and broad range of expertise, but we don't expect you'll know everything that any faculty member might want help with, and we're planning to offer you extensive training.
What Skills are We Looking For
