As a liaison between the community, the college and elected officials it gives me the unique perspective from all sides.

The greatest reward in my work is seeing students reach their educational goals through City Colleges.

IT/ Intern (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 3, 2016
I enjoy IT work but this team didn't feel like a team team member seemed competent in the IT department of the college I attend. With that being said they were often not cohesive on all fronts. A lot of emotions were the reason for decisions; because they were more like a family than coworkers.
I was engrossed in the study and duties of an intern of the African-American Studies department. My hours were extremely flexible and I was allowed to be a student as a priority first. I made posters and fliers, filmed debates and lectures. Made copies, too; like a true intern.
IT work, learned new skills/ Networked with professors and other students, made art

My work was straightforward and duties clear, I improved my organizational skills and understanding of Biology while employed in Wright College's lab. My supervisor and the department chair treated me well and their advice helpful. Co-workers were good people around my age. Hardest part of work was balancing time their with my college classes.

This hospital is an affiliate of Stroger Hospital here in Chicago. Smaller than Stroger and located on the south side. The staff is awesome when it comes to applying your class and lab skills to real life.
Staff Assistant /Accounting (Former Employee) – 226 west Jackson – March 4, 2016
This job had a lot of good points to it, because I liked who I worked with but it is an at will position and they can get rid of you for no reason. I learned a lot of customer service skills here, I don't want to go back.
A very Challenging, fun and productive work place.
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 4, 2015
Excellent place to work for and most important I learn a lot of skills. My Colleagues were the best, if you need help with something all you do is ask, and the upper managements were the same, they also push you to continue their education.
City Colleges of Chicago will give a work study student an opportunity for employment.
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 11, 2015
Working with City Colleges of Chicago provided me with a job that I enjoyed, which made me a productive employee in regards to attendance and morale.
One day was as different as the next. I could be working with a student one day on financial matters or preparing a report for budget analysis the next.
When I first started the job I was unaware of all the rules related to the program, but time and perseverance and I adapted very well. My supervisor was very supportive and when needed my co-workers would offer assistance.
I enjoyed making sure that everything ran smoothly and the most rewarding was when a class completed and the student graduation ceremony.
Work place was fun at times but sometime a very difficult place to work.
Sr College Phone Advisor (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 17, 2015
A typical day at CCC was talking to 100 to 150 students in need of assistance with getting accumulated to college life. Management was fair at times but made the job difficult by not treating the staff as adults and more like children.
Assisting students makes the job worth working.
Management not being fair to all staff and not just the chosen ones
