A great place to work. The College gives so much back to the community on many different levels.
Pros: making positive changes in the lives of students.
Cons: shortage of funds to add more high tech programs.
The typical day is atypical, working with people, you must be prepared for anything! Work days include meeting with peers, generating ideas and working towards solutions to sometime complex problems.
I've learned that you have to give a lot of yourself when working with people. This means being flexible to your ideas to understand and accept the ideas of others.
Management has always been easy for me, I believe it is because I am approachable and a good listener.
My co-workers are great, each well prepared for their roles through their previous experience.
Hardest part of my job was working most of the times without the funds needed to go to the next level. So, as with many state agencies, we had to stretch resources to get positive results.
The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the positive change in the lives of graduates for themselves and their families.
