Assistant Coach (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 20, 2017
I worked as an assistant soccer coach at FIT as a student. It was a great way to earn some extra money, but I do not know about the benefits that one would get as a full time professor or anyone working in the office.
Fun part-time job, ended up taking over a lot of manager responsibilities.
Tour Guide Leader (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 18, 2017
As a leader, I was one of the students with the most responsibility, and as such was more stressed than others, but it was still easy and exciting. Everyone in the office is very nice and helpful yet fun to talk to.

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 3, 2017
I nice relaxing culture however it's very political with roles and unions rules and does not offer much in career advancement. Benefits in terms of healthcare and time off are nice, even though you pay with fees and dues.

Illustration Model (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 21, 2017
VIP treatment from professors. Classrooms vary from small to large classes. Pressure can be very high or low, depending on class sizes. Standing on stage, like a full moon in the sky, can be a bit tricky, maintaining composure can be a very meditative task. The sense of oneness afterwards makes it all worthwhile

IT User Support Services and Media Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 11, 2015
Great place to work at. Learned a lot over the years. Grew as a manager and a project manager. Worked with a closely knit team of technical geeks and learned and taught each other throughout the journey. Customer Support and Satisfaction is the key to doing this job. Hardest part of the job is to negotiate a common ground between user requests and upper management to come to a agreeable ground for any solution and support structure. It is a work hard and play hard environment.
Technology Resources Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 26, 2015
I've enjoyed working at FIT over the past 7.5 years. Most of the people who work there are passionate about what they do, which is invigorating and refreshing. The students make your work worthwhile.
Bureaucracy can sometimes make simple tasks seem unachievable; Sometimes people who have worked here for a while get set in their ways and that can make it hard to introduce new initiatives; Sometimes the students can be a handful, but I'm sure that's the case in any educational institution; Sometimes you get stuck with no room to advance beyond the confines of your position
I would recommend this place of employment.
Dedicated staff, (Generally) great students who are very talented and hardworking, Good benefits, Some room for career advancement, Great colleagues

Student Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 21, 2015
Interning at the Fashion Institute of Technology was a cool experience. However, I did not do much at this job it simply entailed me to complete office assignments such there were times when I had to run errands outside of the office- that was my favorite part. In addition to working there I was able to learn more about this college as well as meet some very creative people like myself. The people I was introduced to here were all full of life and inspired me in the long run. A Typical day included handling student files, picking up mail, inputting data into MS office softwares such as word and excel, typing letters, and the office duty list continues. Although it was not my ideal job/internship I still enjoyed working there.
