Digital Design Associate
The Office of Information Technology needs a graphic designer with a keen visual eye for print and digital design. (If you’re interested in web design, all the better.) We’re looking for a Digital Design Associate who not only can create clean designs, but who also can follow — and, at times, define — a distinctive style for projects.
The Digital Design Associate will work with full-time OIT staff and other Student Ambassadors in developing divisional communication materials and campaigns. This position may assist in the design and user interface of university web properties, depending on availability, skills and interest.
OIT Student Ambassador Program
The Digital Design Associate is part of our OIT Student Ambassador program, which includes students working in a variety of roles and with different interests. Student Ambassadors work closely with each other, with OIT staff and with the university community to advocate for and improve campus technology. For our part, we can help pad your resume with a number of opportunities to develop new skills, participate in networking and special events and learn from experienced mentors.
Practically what this means: The Student Ambassador program allows you to advance to positions with broader responsibilities and, accordingly, greater pay. While you may start as an Associate, you can work your way up to more specialized roles.
We value the contributions of all of our interns and student workers, and we want to provide you with practical experience to take on your world once you leave the hilltop. In return, we expect you to be reliable, punctual and ready and willing to jump into a challenge. For this position, we’d also like you to have:
• Experience with designing for both print and digital media
• A work ethic that’s both independent and collaborative
• Awareness of university style and branding principles — or a willingness to learn them
• Demonstrated proficiency with the Adobe Creative Suite
• Availability to work both on and off campus between 10-15 hours each week
Strong interpersonal and time management skills are a plus, too.
