Mentor/Tutor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 29, 2018
Being a tutor at Cal State La has been one of the most self fulfilling jobs I've had. Although it was part time, working in an environment like that had become one of the best places to be at during the day. Helping the students in subjects such as English and math was rewarding in ways that made me enjoy what I did. I would definitely recommend this job to anybody seeking an on campus job while going to school.
As member of archaeological site recordation project it was an excellent opportunity to gain paid working experience.

Excellent housing accommodations
Spent entire work week on island, so social activities were limited
Front Office Assistant (Current Employee) – California – July 5, 2017
Important skills that I have acquired while working for Cal State LA Housing and Residence Life is creating, editing and updating spreadsheets, responding to emails and voicemails, and sorting and dispersing incoming and outgoing mail/packages
Administrative positions make much more than Instructors
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 30, 2017
Great university for the students. Cal State LA is #1 in turning low-income students into high-income earners. Much better for Associate Professors than Adjunct Lecturers. Even better pay for Administrative positions.
Co-Director of Golden Eagle Film Festival (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 7, 2015
The culture at this university is amazing. Everyone in every department is extremely helpful and there is a sense of community. Administrators are very supportive of their students, and want them to succeed. Through the film festival, I got to learn the various policies and procedures of the campus, and learned the process of planning major events at a public university.
Flexible work environment with friendly colleagues
Text Transcriber (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 15, 2014
Since I work as a Student Assistant, my work being flexible is most important for me because I have to balance work and classes. This is just what I get working here. There is a little work pressure to get stuff done, because the disabled students are completely reliable on us. So the work has to be done morally, as well as perfectly. I learned time-keeping and getting stuff done within a particular time constraint. Managing the books, prioritizing work, understanding and thinking analytically are some other things learned from small situations arising everyday at work. I haven't encountered any challenging part of the work but I am willing to and would love to face it.
