CRC hires students and offers non-paid internships. Since CRC works with clients outside Office of Information Technology, it is important that student workers maintain a professional image when they are working, whether they are working in or outside the office. CRC student employees and interns must conduct themselves professionally and have outstanding customer service skills. Student workers help prepare documents, presentations, and training materials; provide service to OIT customers; and provide technology training to the campus community. Knowledge of Word is required, and proficiency in PowerPoint and video creation tools is a plus. Although the criteria to join our team may be high, student employees and interns get the opportunity to learn and practice skills in advertising, public relations, business, mass communication, and media arts. We will consider enthusiastic students from any major so long as they are willing to take big steps toward the professional working world.
