• Employment

    The Writing and Communication Center is not currently hiring, but please check again soon. From March 15 until April 16, we will be accepting applications for three peer tutor openings. Hired tutors will start working in Fall 2021.

    Peer Tutor: Requirements and Application Process

    Peer tutors provide one-on-one tutoring in writing, public speaking, and other forms of communication. Tutors work with undergraduate and graduate students from all Hamline programs, of all skill levels, and at any point in their projects. 

    Tutors are currently working virtually due to COVID-19, but we anticipate being hybrid or face-to-face in Fall 2021. Under normal circumstances, this is a fully on-campus position that requires tutors to work on the lower level of Bush Memorial Library.

    A complete job description is available. Among other things, tutors must:

    • Have excellent writing, communication, research, and interpersonal skills.
    • Be enrolled in one of Hamline’s programs as a sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate student by their first day of work.
    • Be available to work 810 hours a week during the fall and spring semesters, with afternoon, evening, and weekend availability preferred.
    • Participate in pre-semester training and in-semester staff meetings.
    • Commit to working with us for at least one year.

    To apply for a position, please complete an online application. Its final sections will ask you for:

    • The names and contact information of two faculty members, from Hamline or another institution, who can supply references upon request.
    • A cover letter and résumé.
    • An academic writing sample totaling no more than 20 pages; multiple documents are acceptable.

    We will contact top candidates to schedule an interview. For more information about employment in the Writing and Communication Center, contact Rob Cannella, the center's director, at writingcenter@hamline.edu or 651-523-2026.
