Working With Us

We employ 80+ writing consultants. Two-thirds of these consultants are UT graduate students. We encourage qualified applicants from all disciplines to apply. To be considered for a position, please send a cover letter, CV, and 5-page sample of your expository writing to uwc@utexas.edu. Applications will be reviewed annually after June 15.

One-third of our consulting staff is comprised of UT undergraduate students. To be eligible to work for us, undergraduates must first take RHE 368C: Writing Center Internship, which is taught by Dr. John Ruszkiewicz. If you are interested, please send your writing sample and a brief faculty referral (just a sentence or two) to jruszk@me.com by October 15 (to be considered for the spring class) or April 19 (to be considered for the fall class).

Periodically we host an Open House where potential consultants can meet John and ask questions about the class and job. If you are interested in working for us, check our Events page for details about our next Open House.
