The Computer Lab Consultant (CLC) is the entry-level student position within the Office of Student Computing Resources. CLCs are hired to learn customer service, software, and technical skills necessary to support the University of Arizona clients in multiple modalities and locations.
CLCs are staffed across campus at OSCR Tech Zone locations to guide students, staff, and faculty using the equipment and software available at Tech Zones and VCAT. In addition, they introduce clients to various campus technology and academic resource through referrals. CLCs also provide in-person, hands-on support, including software installation and diagnostic services for client-owned computers, laptops, and tablets. They also assist with NetID password resets and other technical and non-technical issues.
When consultants aren’t assisting clients, they are learning on the job through a detailed roadmap of learning objectives: training modules, assigned projects, and monthly staff meetings to progress within three months to Technical Consultant, where they will continue their growth by delivering support and customer service through the modalities of chat and phone along with a pay increase.
