Information Technology aims to give its student consultants, while receiving an academic education, the skills and professional manners that will make them valuable to future employers. Student Consultants are given the opportunity to make valuable contributions to the Cedar Crest community by helping their fellow students as well as faculty and staff with their technology needs.
Becoming a Student Consultant offers you the chance to:Obtain professional training and hands on experience while earning money.
Several of our positions are entry level, and are designed to help students with little to no work experience learn real-life work skills along with technology training.
Expand your skills outside of your major
You do not need to be a computer major to become a computer technician. We provide the training; you provide the enthusiasm and willingness to learn. Technology is invaluable no matter where your career path takes you.
Build a better resume
When you graduate, you'll be competing with many others with your same degree and grade point average. Being tech savvy can help you stand out above the rest, and get your foot in the door.
