Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Chico, CA – June 18, 2015
Overall my time at chico state as a student at CSUC was great. I worked for the Research Foundation under the IT department. it was was very flexible and very understanding of my time, often encouraging me to complete school tasks at work if need be. The management around it was a bit wish-washy but for the most part they do understand that student-workers are students first. And they also try to incorporate the realism of an actual office environment so professionalism is always expected. The hardest part of the job was usually just a busy day when lots of things happened to go wrong all at once and you have to prioritize which ones to get to first. But the best part usually came right after that in the form of lots of hours to finish up homework to get ready for free weekends. Great place.

Academic Assistant (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – May 31, 2015
Assisting in the soc and psych departments helped me learn some very basic aspects of an administrative setting while allowing me to maintain my intellectual curiosity for what i learned and was a thoroughly enjoyable experience! Duties included being there before lectures sometimes to print off exams for students and also helping students learn some concepts that were difficult for them. I worked with some assistants who seemed very apathetic and that was perhaps one let down during the experience. the most difficult part of this experience was frankly not still being able to do it after i graduate. I especially loved helping students learn when lectures weren't quite enough.
learned even more than i did the first time around
