"EOP was there for me even before I started my education at Chico State and became more like a family to me than a support service."
– Veronica Coates, School Psychologist
Student Job Opportunities
The success of the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is largely due to the students that work in our office. EOP values its student employees and provides opportunities for professional growth. Many of our past student employees have moved on to very exciting careers or have returned to work for EOP as professionals because of the experience gained working for the program. Two integral student assistant positions in our office are the paraprofessional advisor and intern advisor. These positions have direct contact with EOP students on a regular basis.
The paraprofessional advisor works directly with students participating in the EOP First Year Experience to help them transition to college life. These duties include academic advising, co-leading university life workshops, and attending a university life course. The paraprofessional advisor has the opportunity to be a great role model to new students.
The EOP intern advisor works with continuing students, prepares and presents workshops, performs various office projects, and fills the role of receptionist. Emphasis is placed on general education advising and major exploration.
By completing the intern/paraprofessional advisor application, you are applying for both positions. For complete job descriptions and application information, please click on the links below.
