A day at work involved being invested with a high level of trust. My position required me to have access to sensitive information regarding both the students and staff. My goal was to gain insight into the business structure and function of a small business and trades college. Coyne College has two campuses in Chicago both are located in the impressive downtown business district of the city. The school has also acquired in recent years a school in Atlanta, GA that trains in the field of court reporting. I had the opportunity to see the expenditures and also gained some insight into the amount of revenue that flows through this insitution. Management gave me extensive flexibility in executing my responsibility and I was allowed to work independently with little supervision. The school has a strong policy emphaszing a high level of professional behavior for both students and staff. The most difficult part of this job was knowing that as a student worker in the federally funded student worker program that the position would end with the completion of my schooling. The most enjoyable part of the job was the treatment of respect given as a colleage even as my status was also a student.
