student assistant (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – January 12, 2016
A typical day would be talking to students in person or on phone regarding exams the plan to take. I learned to work with people from difference cultural backgrounds it could be visitors, students or faculty members.
Graphic Design Instructor (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – July 31, 2013
I teach one to two classes per semester excluding summer during the evening. I work about 18 students per semester introducing the students to several design programs as well as video editing program.
I get the chance to work with other professionals, active designing students and new kids considering what future they will take. Teaching students how to use the programs is only one part, I also work hard wit the student to handle not only time management with work but file management.
assigning grades to students who are well intentioned but did not abide by the instructions set up by the college.
the best part is watching te students "get it" then watching them take off using the programs. Also mentoring the students in their work to get the best outcome possible with the experience they have.
staying up to date on new methods being used in the industry
Division Secretary (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – February 25, 2015
Several times a year the college becomes very busy. You need to be a flexible employee to be able to adapt with the fast changing pace. Personally, I like the diversity. Management has improved over the past few years. Co-workers are fun and we all love to eat and celebrate any occasion. We work hard and play hard. The hardest part of my job is telling someone they are not eligible to receive financial aid. Overall a fun place to work with lots of time off (10 days at Christmas and you do not have to use vacation! Who can beat that!).
friendly co-workers, lots of time off, fun place to work.
low pay, lack of opportunity to progress upward in career.
Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs Specialist (Former Employee) – 2800 E Spring Creek Pkwy Plano, TX, 75024 – May 22, 2015
A typical day at work involved taking student calls regarding Financial aid or veteran's affairs benefits. Processing reports for the automated verification software to ensure students are processed in a timely manner. My managers were wonderful supportive people. My co-workers were fun and we had a great time solving problems and getting students through the system to get their financial aid, it was a very rewarding experience. The hardest part was sometimes dealing with parents of students who wanted things done faster than was possible.
Adjunct professor (Current Employee) – I love the gig. – March 10, 2014
It is a delight working for Collin College. The atmosphere there is one of creative advancement. Training the students from real world experience gives the students the best possible idea of what working in the real job environment will be like.
The Department Chair and Dean are wonderful leaders, providing the best means for the faculty as Administrative rules allow.
The satisfaction one gets when a former student comes back, telling you that you were critical in their education is invaluable.
they allow you do to your job in your style while maintaining a cohesive curriculum
adjunct professors getting secondary choices of class loads.

I am very thankful to have had the chance to work at Collin College. I learned a lot in my position as a financial assistant. The office gets super busy at the beginning of each semester so that can be a bit stressful. I truly enjoyed being able to help others either get into school or continue their education.
