Employment

As a unit within the Dean of Students Office (DSO) Student Success and Retention sphere, the Writing and Media Center (WMC) helps students identify and achieve their learning objectives and become stronger, more confident communicators. Communication consultants (CCs) and graduate communication consultants (GCCs) offer individualized assistance to undergraduate and graduate students across the disciplines working on any form of written, oral, visual, or electronic (WOVE) communication. Communication consultants help students at all stages of the composition process, from brainstorming and organizing ideas to revising and polishing drafts. The WMC does not offer editing or proofreading services. Instead, communication consultants help students evaluate and improve the effectiveness of their own work. The WMC serves students in Carver Hall, the Hixson-Lied Student Success Center, and Parks Library.

Applications for the 2017-18 academic year are currently closed. Additional questions about Writing & Media Center employment can be sent to wmc-jobs@iastate.edu.
