CTI would like to hire a part-time intern.  The person would work approximately 10 hours a week, with a very flexible schedule.  This would be a minimum-wage job. The job requirements would be things that fit with the internship class in Tech Writing, but there would be "administrative assistant" type work as well, and likely helping us develop a Wix.com web site.
 
We would do what we could to make sure the person completed 120 hours by the end of this semester. Or, if someone just wants someone just wants some general office/writing/editing/phone/web site experience, and they don't have a minimum number of hours they need to complete, we would row gently down the stream with the number of work hours. 
 
After a few months helping us get caught up on things, this would NOT likely turn into a permanent job, but depending on the person, this might turn into a "Help! We are drowning! Please come work for a couple of weeks" job.
 
If this does not sound like something that YOUR students have a need for, will you please forward this on to others?  Again, we don't care if the student needs the experience for a specific class, we just want to offer a Weber student some extra cash, and but will help them fill an internship class requirements if possible.
 
Have them contact me for more information.  I am usually here from 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.  I will be out of the office this week from Tuesday at noon, until Thursday, but I can be reached through my Weber Mail at
