Consultant Application

Applications for spring 2023 accepted until Friday, Dec. 9 at 5 p.m.

 

We hire for the entire year; is there any chance you would only work one semester of an academic year?*
Your standing for the 2021-2022 academic year.*
(3.0 and above preferred)

Situational Response 1

Pretend you are working in the Writing Center and have the following interaction; explain how you would respond and why. A student enrolled in Comp I that you’ve worked with for a few sessions complains to you that your feedback isn’t helpful. The student explains that their professor often gives advice that contradicts yours, and then the student suggests sarcastically that perhaps you need a good writing consultant. Even worse, all of this happens when other Comp I students and multiple consultants are in the physical Writing Center—all of whom have heard everything and are waiting for you to respond.

Situational Response 2

Pretend you are working in the Writing Center and observe the following interaction; explain how you would respond and why. It’s about 10 minutes before your shift begins. One of your colleagues is having a heated exchange right outside the Writing Center. Five minutes later, your colleague clocks in to begin their shift although obviously stressed and clearly discombobulated. You’re worried about your colleague because this is the third time this semester something like this has happened right before their shift. You think that your colleague needs to take a breather and maybe even go for a walk, but their client arrives early.
