IT Technical Support (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 3, 2017
I guess a typical day would be answering phones at the helpdesk and diagnosing problems by users at my university. If the problem cannot be solved over the phone then i must make out a ticket and proceed to that locate solve the problem. What I have learned is that it is very rewarding to help others and by helping others it enhanses my abilities. I do my job and lead by example. The best part of my job is learning how to deal with different cultures and different people but in some cases it can also be the hardest. It is enjoyable to master the different responses to users to satisfy them and gain the experience for future references.

Director, CTRE (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 28, 2017
With no state budget for over two years, the staff has been slashed and everyone has had to perform additional duties. There is no job security. Most departments do not take responsibility for their job functions.
Clerical Aide (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 3, 2017
As a work study my managers had me run errands such as deliver/pick-up mail and data entry. I worked the Math department and they were highly organized. I learned multitasking is unavoidable, but I learned from senior employees from the university about not only the tasks assign but how to develop myself as a person. The hardest part about the job was working with the old fashion copier making some tasks longer than I'd like. However getting to chat with professors as people and not teachers made it cool.
