The following are just a few of the frequently asked questions regarding the RCC hiring process. Questions are always accepted year-round at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q. What goes into being an RCC?
A. RCCs are Resident Computer Consultants, students who live in each residence and support in-room network connections, residence computer clusters, as well as consult with residents on computer-related problems and other technology needs. To find out more, check out the RCC Job Description. You can also talk to your own RCC - take a look at the RCC Directory.
Q. What's the difference between a Dorm RCC and a Row RCC?
A. Row RCCs have the same responsibilities as Dorm RCCs and must fully participate on the house management team. Row RCC applicants, like all other RCC applicants, must pass a qualifying interview, but are then passed on to and hired by house management teams. Since Row RCCs do not support as many students in each house as other RCCs, Row RCCs are paid on a sliding scale depending on the number of residents in his/her house. For more information on RCC salaries and compensation, you can take a look at current RCC Salaries.
Q. What if I am going to be away Spring quarter?
A. If you are going to be away during Spring quarter, you must contact the RCC Manager at email@example.com to make sure you have a qualifying interview. Then, it is your responsibility to speak to the RFs/CDs or house management teams for the residences you would like to apply to. You should also make sure that you fulfill the CS196 requirement or waive out of that requirement ahead of time. This is a required course for all RCCs.
