Now Hiring Research Consultants!

We are now hiring research consultants for the 2018-2019 academic year! Research consultants work one-on-one and in small groups with students to help them brainstorm and refine topics, find sources, read and evaluate information, and cite research. Research consultants receive paid training to learn effective consulting and research skills.

Research consultants:

  • Help students with library research
  • Develop skills employers are looking for
  • Work around their class schedules

“Not only do you get to help fellow students feel better about their research abilities, you also continuously hone your own skills and become much more effective with research, communication, and collaboration.”– Caitlin, Research Consultant

Research consultants are paid $10.45/hour. Applications are due Friday, March 16 at 5:00 PM. You can download the application here
