Job Description

The Digital Learning and Media Center (DLMC) is located on level five of Case Library. With 20 Macintosh workstations loaded with various software tools for media creation and editing, 2d and 3d design, and more. The facility is staffed with knowledgeable student media consultants daily, offering one-on-one assistance to students, faculty, and staff in the use of media creation hardware and software. Media mentors are encouraged to work within a subset of digital media to initially focus their expertise and work, these include: digital storytelling, Colgate domains, digital accessibility and maker technology. 

The pay rate is competitive and students are paid for an average of 8-10 hours per week.

In addition to demonstrating strong digital media aptitude, we are seeking courteous, service-oriented students who have effective communications skills in working with people. Other skills involve attention to detail and patience.

If you are interested in applying, please bear in mind:

  • Rising sophomores (current first-year students) and/or students having taken Film & Media Studies and Studio Art courses are especially encouraged to apply, although students from all majors are welcome to apply.
  • You must be able to work at least four evening hours each week of the semester, excluding breaks.

Because training is provided, you do not have to know everything about media technology, nor plan to be an art major or film and media studies minor in order to apply. Rather, you must have a real interest and passion for media creation and editing.
