Administrator (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – May 2, 2016
A typical day; I love the mornings. You will find me actively communicating with the professors, seeking to find out what are their plans for the week, meeting with my supervisor(s) to discuss the needs of the organization. I learned that time management is a precedence in getting things done while increasing your focus, which improves your productivity. I believe with any job there are easy and difficult parts. To me the hardest part of a job is the beginning; not knowing what to expect and how a company actually flows until you get your feet into the door. However as time goes on, I realize that it's just a matter of facing something new and enjoying the process. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting people, so many different personalities. Some may be more challenging than others,but nonetheless it is a rewarding experience. It teaches me patience and understanding, which has been a valuable asset to me, in trying to attain the needs of everyone.

One word amazing working here is the best experience you can receive. I enjoy learning many things from the professors here and see how much they truly care. Broward College has truly opened my eyes in seeing that professors and staff members truly care! I enjoying coming to work everyday and going to my classes.
Meet new people, gain customer service experience, and help others
Broward College is a place where you start with nothing but at the end you finished what you started. Student Life Department helped to build my confidence to understand the responsibilities that every employee needs to know to learn the best for a job.
Productive, fun, flexible place for a student to work.

Adjunct Psychology Professor (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – January 19, 2016
My typical lecture engages students in a myriad of subjects within the field of psychology.
Teaching can and is bidirectional.
I have learned from my students as well as teaching them the fundamentals of basic psychology.
I learned that engaging my audience, one must consistently and methodologically attend to each person, even in a large classroom setting.
This means balancing out relevent questions while balancing the general knowledge of the classroom.
I have enjoyed the multicultural aspect of the management at this setting.
The most challenging part of this position was getting hired the day prior and having the responsibility to students to create syllabi and presentations and reading the required textbook to freshen up on what I was about to lecture.
The most enjoyable part of this job, like therapy, is knowing when a difference is made and a student actually learns from my lectures. I have been personally moved when students have taken the time out to thank me and explained that psychology was broken down to be understandable in what can be abstract and sometimes complex to undergraduate students.
Interracting with students of many backgrounds

Lead Campus Technology Specialist (Former Employee) – Pembroke Pines, FL – October 24, 2015
Management driven policies are driving the organization to the bottom of the ocean. Meanwhile, some of the best talents are jumping ship. As the institution continues to move to toward a corporate model, it is losing the community paradigm it was once known for and valued. There is either a lack of care or maybe it’s a strategy to undervalue employee, or no one just has not gotten a clue on how to move the ship away from this wreck.
Work/life balance is somewhat flexible.
The pay and benefits are horrible. The margin for career advancement is very small.
