About ResNet Student Technicians

Information Technology Services/ResNet needs students that enjoy helping people and have an interest in computer hardware, software and networking. Primary responsibilities include assisting customers through email, over the phone, and in person.

Prior computer/networking knowledge is a plus, but is not required to apply. Some of our best technicians started with little technical knowledge, but were willing to spend extra time to learn the topics they were weak in. Service Desk technicians come from a variety of backgrounds.

This is primarily a customer service position.

Why Work Here?

Many of our technicians find jobs almost immediately after they graduate because of the experience and training they gain. Below are companies where our technicians have gone to work after graduating!


We have also had students who decided to move on to graduate school after graduation! Those who go to UCSD grad school still continue to work at the ITS Service Desk / RESNET as a graduate student!

We are a group composed of friendly and wonderful people, who are looking forward to working with you!
