Phenomenal Student Worker Position
Student Worker (Current Employee), Harrisburg, PAJanuary 25, 2013
Pros: very personable campus
Cons: student worker position- pay isn't the greatest
A position that allows a student to get an inside look at the professional side of campus. The position also allows you to see how certain individuals have been groomed and prepared to be leaders. It's a great opportunity if you would like to be a professor, an executive, or just want to learn the ins and outs of college life.

HACC is a very friendly place to work. Processed print jobs from word files to PDF's using InDesign/CS4. Sent PDF's out to print, processed purchase orders to pay print vendors. The hardest part of the job was the work overload and being laid off. The most enjoyable part was all of my coworkers and friends.

clean enviroment to work in, the co-workers are friendly even though I was their student last year.

The hardest part of this type of job is, coming up with a lesson plan and delivering it to the students some of whom I attended class with in earlier semesters. What I liked most about this job is being able to impart what I learned working in the maintanence feild to students that are just starting out.

My Experience working at Harrisburg Area Community College
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee), H.A.C.C. Lebanon CampusAugust 20, 2012
I begin my work day by checking my email and voice mail to see if any students will be absent. I then head to the studio to begin setting up for the class. This is also my office hour where students can come to me with any questions or concerns they have with the class or materials. Class begins with a lecture and slide show followed by a demonstration – more... (as needed) to ensure the class understands the concepts we are working on. I have discovered that by even with the demo's and detailed lectures there will still be some students that might not fully understand the concepts presented in class. I try to compensate by redirecting them one on one which gives me a better understanding of how that student learns best. I feel that I manage my class fairly well, but occasionally will go to the Dean or co-workers for advice on how to navigate certain situations making sure to not bring up any specifics about a student if it involves matters of that nature. My co-workers are always willing to lend a hand. I do tend to run into issues with some students attendance or with them coming to class unprepared. This becomes most difficult when having to grade especially if the student excels in the lessons and is a skilled artist. Then there are those students who come to every class and inform me within the requested time frame if they cannot, who are very skilled, who open up the dialogue when it comes to our critique sessions and work very hard to get ahead. These are the students who make me want to come to class everyday and share with them what I know and to have open discussions about art. This is what motivates me to want to do a better job. – less

Giant Food Stores is a great place to work if you are a High School student or College Student. They give you great hours and a great atmosphere to work in. A typical day of work would be to get your register, make sure it is clean, sign in and start your duties. You get to greet plenty of customers so great customer service is a must.

Extremely gratifying
Speech Mentor (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PAJune 19, 2012
Pros: study time when there was downtime.
Cons: minimum wage job.
I would mentor students who were needing help writing or presenting speeches for class presentations. I learned and also found the hardest aspect of my job was to communicate with students from other cultures. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to help students overcome their fear of public speaking.
