    I worked at Dartmouth part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The IT&C department at Dartmouth might just be one of campus' best-hidden undergrad employers. They have a variety of jobs in roles ranging from IT consulting to telephone support to working with information technology to responding to classroom IT needs. The hourly pay began at $11/hr when I started (which was competitive at the time) and you received a $0.25/hr raise for every term you worked there. Best of all..., the skills and information you learn there are applicable to a wide variety of fields. I was able to land my management consulting job thanks mostly to my experiences at IT&C!

    Cons

    The starting hourly pay of $11/hr was no longer competitive with other on-campus jobs at the end of my 4 years at Dartmouth. Also, it would be nice if ambitious students could take on more responsibility over time. I began to feel that I was "outgrowing" the role by year 3, but stayed due to the high hourly pay, work environment, and skills that I could put on my resume.

    Advice to Management

    Allow ambitious students to help full-time IT staff more frequently with projects. It was great when you challenged us by having us test out new systems or software prior to campus rollouts. Making opportunities like that available at least once a term would stave off boredom and increase student worker retention. Oh, and if it hasn't been done already, increase the starting hourly pay and termly raises. Otherwise... your best workers will continue to prioritize jobs in the CS and Engineering departments, along with jobs in DALI.
