Job Description


Information Technology relies on more than 100 students to provide service and technical support to the University of Oklahoma. OU IT is committed to professional development and provides these students with mentorship, training, and development opportunities. These positions ensure a positive customer experience by providing excellent technology support and meeting customer expectations.

OU IT is currently hiring for multiple roles within the position of Services Specialist. One role would primarily provide customer support via phone, email, and face-to-face interactions in two campus Service Centers. Students in this role will direct inbound calls across campus, troubleshoot minor issues, provide technical support, and communicate with various IT teams to resolve more technically advanced customer incidents. Most shifts will take place between 8am-8p CST, Monday through Friday. Some weekend shifts may be required. This position requires approximately one month of paid training. Due to the amount of time and effort that must be devoted to on-boarding new employees, this position is not recommended for applicants who intend to work in the role for less than one full academic semester.


The second role available with the Services Specialist position would provide phone support for services and initiatives being offered by OU IT. This would include, but not be limited to, answering university operator calls for Norman and HSC campuses. This role should be considered temporary, as need for students in this role will fluctuate.  Shifts will take place between 8a-5p, Monday through Friday. This position requires approximately one week of paid training.


Student MUST have access to a computer with reliable, stable internet connection during scheduled shifts.

Current plans are to have most, if not all, work be completed virtually. Because of this, selected applicants MUST have access to a computer with reliable, stable internet connection during scheduled shifts.

  • Proactively assist all customers with issues they may experience
  • Manage incidents and provide appropriate updates and feedback
  • Provide effective customer support by telephone, e-mail or in person
