Student Assistants in the CTC
Help is available for students who come to the Computer Technology Center (CTC). We have student Peer Tech Coaches on the floor as well as on Zoom, helping students with computer-related homework. Not all Peer Tech Coaches know all software; however, they usually know Digital Media applications and/or MS Office and can help with searches, browsers, and use of the Student Planning software. In addition, some Peer Tech Coaches in the CTC can help with specific subjects such as Accounting, Business, Digital Media, Computer Science, and Engineering Technology. Check the schedule on the CTC's homepage to find a Peer Tech Coach with knowledge of these specific subjects. Help with Canvas, printing, scanning, and connecting your devices to our wireless network is always available in the CTC. Also, located at the CTC front desk, are student Office Assistants who are available for general questions and checking out library books, USB drives, wrist pads, headphones and other equipment.
Instructor Help in the CTC
Some instructors specifically schedule time in the CTC for their office hours. Check at the CTC homepage or on your instructor's Cabrillo Web page to find out if they are doing any hours in the CTC (1400 building). Call the CTC Front Desk at 477-5286 for more information.
Getting Hired as a Student Assistant in the CTC
If you are interested in becoming a Student Assistant in the CTC, please check out the Cabrillo Student Employment Site and click on the Find a Job button. When the CTC is hiring Student Assistants, we list both the Teaching Assistant and the Office Assistant jobs as On-Campus jobs—so look for jobs that start with OC-CTC. Jobs for both Teaching Assistants and/or Office Assistants are usually advertised towards the end of the semester and/or the beginning of the semester. If you are interested, come down to the CTC (1400 building) and speak to Cristy Pazera for a brief job description, job availability, and/or a tour of the computer lab. Students are typically hired on a semester-by-semester basis, but usually the student has the option of working the following semester— if the student's schedule and the available CTC shifts coincide. Students must be registered for at least 6 units to be employed in the CTC.
