Front Desk Associate - Work Study (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – January 10, 2018
I have been a work study at Durham Tech since August 2016 and I am really glad that I had the opportunity to work the front desk in Admissions and Advising. The process that students have to go through to be a student at Durham Tech can be very complex for some new students and my job is to make it an easy process for all students that I come in contact with. No matter how rude the student or potential student is to me I must remain professional in how I handle them. Very thankful for the people that I work with, because anyone of them will answer any question that I have whether it is work related or something with one of my classes.

Financial Aid Advising Receptionist (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – June 14, 2017
Learning financial aid requirements and nuances through governmental regulation. Extremely insightful. Great deal of retention necessary. Somewhat repetitive data entry and monitoring. Good staff to work with.
All days @ work are good from beginning to end thankful for work I've learned I'm an exception to most people's work ethics because i'm competitive I've learned I can do most anything I set my mind to do I've learned to appreciate the good with the bad and my favorite part of any job is to help or make someone happy
I absolutely love working for Durham Tech. I teach in the morning and the evening. Everyone there is serious and committed to the students, and the teaching-learning community. The collegiate community is committed to continuous improvement, and support and resources are always available to help employees reach for their goals. My supervisors are wonderful. They inspire employees to strive to do their best, and when employees make mistakes, which sometimes happens in the course of human life, supervisors and managers always provide opportunities for the employee to correct and remediate their errors. The most enjoyable part of the job is relating to students, and being rewarded by student progress.

Great starting point for student that want the experience in a office setting. Can get slow at times and you have to find things to do around the office to stay busy but mostly just sit at the front desk
I.T. Desktop Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – March 2, 2016
As a work-study I had great fun working here. The office was so relaxed most of the time, the work was super easy ( that being said I have been working with computers all my life so I didn't have to learn the basics), hours were flexible, management was very understanding, you would learned many skills that one would use in the tech world, and there was free food sometimes.

Life is what you make it at Durham Technical Community College. This community college boasts a private institution feels, and is similar to cheers; everyone knows your name. there are opportunities for students to join the staff, but depending on the department you join, there may not be any room for advancement.
