Being a UTF will help you with your future career
Your role as an Undergraduate Teaching Fellow is worth more than being a teaching assistant. It’s more than being part of a great learning atmosphere. And, though this may surprise you, it’s even worth more than the paycheck it offers you.
Because you are a UTF, you will have a greater chance at scoring the future career of your dreams.
The Undergraduate Teaching Fellow program at USU is competitive and only those who are exceptionally qualified can be part of our great team. When you help graduate programs and your future employers understand this, they are so much more likely to want you.
Being a UTF makes you very appealing. But how do you ensure that?
You need to be able to explain and emphasize why your UTF position makes you valuable in your grad school applications, resumes and curricula vitae. It’s simple, really. If you know how to do it.
Fortunately, we offer a couple different resources to teach you.
One great resource USU has to help you is Career Services. They can coach you through building a resume, writing your curricula vitae and applying for internships or jobs. Visit their website for more information on how they can help you create the future you deserve.
Another resource only offered to UTFs is our Spring Workshop, which will focus exclusively on how you can describe and highlight your experience in the UTF program as you work on resumes, curricula vitae and applications. The workshop will be on March 2nd from 3:30 – 4:30 in Business Building Room 215. Make it a priority and you won’t regret it!
