Loved working with the High School Students
Worksite Supervisor (Former Employee), Fitchburg, MAJune 24, 2014
Pros: enthusiastic high school students, fun activities and events, passionate co-workers and supervisors
As a former student in the Upward Bound program, I had a strong tie to the community, the students, and everything they stand for. It was truly a pleasure spending an entire year giving something back to this program that gave so much to me. A typical day of work as an AmeriCorps Job Ready member consisted of administrative work, reaching out to post-secondary – more... schools for general information and scheduling tours, and researching potential community service events for multiple students to attend. I would then drive to the local schools to pick up the high school students, bring them to their dual enrollment course at Fitchburg State University, and drive them home after their course. My co-workers were absolutely phenomenal. I had nothing but good experiences with the people I worked under and alongside. Each and every one of them shared my same passion for making a difference in a child's life by doing what we can do ensure they pursue a career or higher education. The most enjoyable part of my job was spending time with the students and listening to their feedback about the program. Every student had something great to say about Upward Bound and I was so glad to be a part of something so special. We truly were one big family. The hardest part of my job advertising college and university tours to be fun and exciting so that students would be more interested in attending. If it wasn't a college they were interested in, they wouldn't think twice about not going. However, I worked hard to teach the students that even if they aren't interested in attending the school, it's still a great experience to take the tour and get more information. – less

An educational institution with a heart
Helpdesk Technician (Former Employee), Fitchburg, MAMarch 5, 2013
Pros: awesome work culture, good pay, comfortable setting
Fitchburg State honors excellence and values people over productivity. The Help Desk has evolved over the years and has grown into a much larger and more sustainable resource then when I started. Being an educational institution has challenges but I was able to adapt quickly as their vast infrastructure changes. Colleges in Massachusetts, esp. state – more... ones are at the mercy of the state in many ways. I found that their budget was strong and the staff always satisfied. The work culture is calm and inviting. I came to work everyday happy and energized. Working on Macs was a big part of my job. The CIO personally picked me as his assistance on various projects. The hardest part was leaving my position at the helpdesk but being a student worker, it needed to happen. I was there for two solid years, half of my college career. – less
