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.

Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 7, 2015
A typical day on duty was being there for the freshmen to answer any questions for the students. I learned to be a great planner and more independent thinker thanks to them. My co-workers were splendid and fun to work with. The hardest part of my job was telling a student no at times especially when they have used my options given. The most enjoyable part of the job was being a mentor to the students.
Tutor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 19, 2015
I used my own knowledge and experience that I have in programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator to tutor students who needed help with their projects. I got the chance to meet new people every semester and understood their creative backgrounds. It was hard to communicate with international students who don't speak much English, but looking at their style of artwork was enjoyable and gave me some inspiration.
This is a professionally-run institution raising the bar for all mid-town Manhattan schools, rushing towards the inclusion of relevent emerging tech.

Tutor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 31, 2013
Usually we had appointments with students for tutoring. Three times a week I was part of the walk-in in Italian subject. I learned how to deal with young students , and sometimes with learning disabilities. I learned how to encourage them in hard moments, to never give up, and to believe that everyone has a different way to learn, and we all can learn if we have a good teacher or someone that believe in us. Management was really organized, their first concern was to train us in the right way, and they were really understandable about our schedule, they always tried to fulfill our needs. All co-workers were students, following their dreams, working hard, and in their spare time were helping other students in difficult and challenging subjects. The hardest part of the job was to deal with students did not want to put to much effort and pretend we had to do the job for them. The most enjoyable part was to students graduating because I helped and push them to do not give up, or passing the course with an A!
