The work is the reward. There are some infrastructure issues and communication between those who administrate versus those who teach is often at the root. The students are gems. And, for the most part, they are motivated to learn and thus inspiring.

I have been doing this job for 5 years, I had it while i was a student at Berklee and excelled. I was promoted to become a part-time manager at the end of the summer of 2015. I can say that my time on Berklee's stage crew was the best thing I did as a student and am very gracious to be a manager.

Work Study Supervisor at Bursar's Office (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – June 16, 2015
Typical day at work: answering phone calls and emails and assisting students. What I learned: How to work with difficult customers (they have reason to be because it's all about money). Hardest part: Telling students that they can't come to school because they haven't paid their bill. Enjoyable part: It's a lot of fun with the people there. Almost everyone has some type of musical inclination.

A hard working learning environment with constant repairs
Computer Support Technician (Former Employee) – Boston MA – December 28, 2012
Berklee College of Music was a 6 month unpaid apprenticeship awarded to me through Year Up inc. Every morning I checked the ticket system that was provided through Apple, to learn about new repairs to user Imac's. I collected the equipment from various buildings around the college, ran several tests to troubleshot and diagnose each problem. Each machine was a new mystery to solve, some were software issues, some are hardware issues. I had a great time taking apart so many computers, to replace broken parts. Mostly every customer had experienced some form of aggravation while their machine malfunctioned, then experienced relief when I returned it to them in working condition.
a lot of students and staff were greatful to me for fixing their computers, and i was constantly learning about new software development

Professor (Former Employee) – Boston MA – July 2, 2014
Each day I'd teach electives: Voice Class for Instrumentalists or American Diction and at least 1 Sight Reading (aka solfeggi or sight singing) class. There were rooms where faculty had computer, telephone and copier access as well as offices where we could work and meet with students.
Downstairs was a cafeteria and we were located in a neighborhood with bookstores as well as a Computer Center where faculty could work with IT folks on any project desired.
The commute was between 30 and 45 minutes to my home in the suburbs - and there was MBTA access also.
Musically, Berklee is on the forefront of non-classical music. It also has a student body of greater than 40% non-American students. These days, the percentage may be even greater. I learned more in my 36 years at Berklee than I did at all the other education venues combined!
great networking with talented faculty, 24-hour IT assistance, assigned pianists for all performance classes - nice!
