We are hiring students for the Fall

The Educational Technology group (part of Information Technology Services) is looking to hire motivated students to join our Student Technology Assistant program in the Center for Educational Technology in the library.

Fill out an application today!

Are you looking for an opportunity to learn valuable (and practical!) technical skills while working on meaningful projects? Do you like to help people? Do you like to tinker? Would you like to learn about educational technology such as:

  • Blogging and web publishing with WordPress
  • Digital video editing
  • Classroom technology
  • edX MOOCS
  • Audio/Video event support
  • 3d printing

If you already have some experience in these areas or you are motivated to learn more, the STA program may be the right match for you!

While you should be computer literate you do not need to have extensive technical knowledge – just the willingness to learn.

Priority will be given to First Year students, so this could be a great opportunity to learn and grow with us during your time at Trinity!

Shifts are available during our regular hours:

Monday – Wednesday: 8:00a.m.-9:30p.m.
Thursday: 8:00a.m.-8:00p.m.
Friday: 8:00a.m.-6:00p.m.
Saturday : 12:00p.m.-6:30p.m.
Sunday: 12:00p.m.-8:00p.m.

Fill out an application today!
