Our Positions

Administrative Assistants

Administrative Assistants are upbeat, organized, friendly undergraduates from all majors who are committed to helping their peers. Student assistants coordinate and maintain the daily operations of the WMC, greet visitors with a smile, schedule appointments, maintain accurate records, and disseminate essential information about the WMC in person, over the phone, and via email. Through assisting others, administrative assistants gain valuable administrative experience, build their teamwork abilities, and hone their communication skills.

Communication Consultants

Communication Consultants are upbeat, articulate, high-achieving undergraduates from all majors who are committed to helping their peers. Communication Consultants offer individualized assistance to 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. Through assisting others, Communication Consultants gain valuable teaching and teamwork experience, hone their communication skills, and become better writers themselves.   

Graduate Communication Consultants

See description above. Graduate Communication Consultants have quarter-time assistantships and therefore work 10 hours per week. Applicants from all disciplines are welcome. Preference is given to PhD students.
