Hiring New PLFs!

We have exciting news for any one interested in working at the STEM Gateway, we are hiring PLFs for all subjects for the fall 2014 semester. So, anyone who wants to help students learn in subjects like Math, Chemistry, Physics should apply here!

Working as a PLF presents an exciting, fun, and challenging environment where you can tutor students, help them understand new concepts, and improve the STEM community on campus. While the work may seem foreboding at first, the students always appreciate your help, and your fellow PLFs and teachers will help you along the way!

To become a PLF you must have at least a 2.5 GPA, completed a similar course to the class you want to PLF or its equivalent (for example, Math 121 if you want to PLF for Math classes), and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member in a STEM focused field. For a complete list of the requirements, please refer to the job posting in the link above or below!

If you are still not convinced, then consider working as a PLF an opportunity to improve your own skills in a field you enjoy. While many of the PLFs study in STEM fields, we do not require you to be a STEM person yourself. Thus, as long as you want to help your fellow students and have an interest in STEM courses, studies, or education, you are an excellent PLF candidate!
