Writing Center graduate coach application for 2017-2018

Applications are due March 6
  • Our hiring decisions are not based on whether students have another form of support; we need this information in order to set successful applicants up on our payroll. The Writing Center does not provide any assistance with tuition and/or fees; we simply pay our graduate writing coaches (who are classified as TAs) a stipend. Graduate writing coaches do qualify for health insurance, and if you are seeking tuition support from your department or the Graduate School and need confirmation that you are teaching with us, we are happy to supply that.
  • Work schedules are determined at the start of the semester and remain the same each week (though of course we can work around occasional travel or other personal commitments).
  • Graduate writing coaches are trained in August and generally work either the fall only, or the fall and the following spring. New coaches cannot be hired for the summer of 2017.
  • The statement of interest should be roughly 1 page. It is not a cover letter--it is an answer to the question "What interests you about working at the Writing Center next year?"
    Accepted file types: doc, docx, pdf.
  • Accepted file types: doc, docx, pdf.
  • Please don't get too stressed about finding the perfect example. Samples should be five pages or fewer; they can be excerpted from course papers, term papers, theses, dissertations, journal articles, etc.
