I am knowledgeable of the importance of helping my students achieve success with preparation, time management,team work and patience.I enjoyed creating activities to maintain the interest of adult – more... learners and working to present high performance work. Also I have excellent ability to work within the team with my loyal team-player attitude. – less
I enjoyed working with the College it is a great place to be employed. I have learned so much with the Adult Education Department, I've worked for the department for the past 3 years. It has been a great experience. I work with students everyday provide information to enrolling the and getting them registered and set up to be tested and enrolled in – more... college courses. I also distribute textbooks to the student help them with there class schedule as well.. – less
Everyday I work, I am greeted by my boss and handed an assignment for the day which can be organizing a job list for students at the college. I learned how to use Microsoft excel which sometimes can be confusing but my co-workers are more than willing to help me. Students come in to ask how to set up resumes and it feels good for them to leave satisfied.
Like to have a little fun at work but when it's time to do job no excuses for me

Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee), Houston, TX – August 22, 2013
Pros: interacting with students
Cons: not being able to motivate a student to work for themselves.
I was an adjunct professor, teaching two or three courses each semester in education. I taught early classes, starting at 8:00-9:30 am. or late classes from 7:30 – 9:00 pm. The class size varied from as few as seven to as large as twenty seven. The course I taught ranged from: Freshman Organization Classes to second year Teacher Education classes in – more... Early Childhood. What I learned and what the hardest part of the job was, was realizing that not everyone should go to college. Maybe it was because they attended a community college but many of my students did not understand college is like a job – hard work! Several of my students needed more time to complete tasks or internalize material then college or the work force will allow. It was sad, but many of my students were complacent about assignment and/or assessments. Saying the work was too difficult or they didn’t have time to do them. The most enjoyable part of my job was watching my student’s develop: logical thinking skills become self motivated, and success in college. Several of my students signed up to take another course from me. – less
Create a work environment whereby Professor's can develop professionally and personally.
ADJUNCT PROFESSOR (Current Employee), Houston, TX – June 28, 2013
Cons: healthcare and no job secirity
I facilitate student's learning. I have learned how to meet students on their level. The College creates an environment where professor's can develop professionally and personally. The most enjoyable part of the job is when students comprehend the lesson and the least enjoyable are those students who are not interested in learning.
Great place to work with great people to work with
Enrollment Services - Financial Aid Assistant (Current Employee), Houston, TX – June 26, 2013
Pros: lunch functions, free wi-fi, free parking and able to work with school schedule
Cons: benefits, healthcare and hours/wages
Currently my typical day at work involves helping current and potential students apply for financial aid. I do rotate to different areas. One of the main tools that we use is PeopleSoft. In the morning I might be on the phones going through a student’s information to determine what’s going on with their information how to fix problems. Later in the – more... day I’ll move to the front window and see students. This mainly requires me to bring up all their information determine if they need additional paperwork as well as review the paperwork they did bring in. We constantly have new policies so making sure that a student is meeting them is always at the top of our list. One of the things I live about this job is that we work as a team. There is always something new to learn is what I’ve learned. Ask questions if you’re not too sure, is another thing I’ve learned. We do have really good people in management. They are there with the support an office needs. My co-workers are great as well. We have pot luck lunches every so often and that helps bring everyone together. The hardest part of the job would have to be the registration period. This is when our office might see +1500 students a day for three weeks. The most enjoyable part of my job is the people I work with and around the college. There is always something going on like a holiday function. I would like to add that my job does not require a micro manager. I am aware of what my job requires of me and I do my best at it. – less
Registration Assistant (Current Employee), Houston, TX – June 19, 2013
I personally love my job as being a registration assistant at Houston Community College. This coming August would be 4 years I have been with this employer. I like the atomsphere and the people I work with as well as the manangement. I would have to say the hardest part about this job I would have to say about working for a community college is dealing – more... with the difficult customers, or customers that don't want to comprehend the rules and regulations that not only us but the state has to abide by. But me trying to assist the students the best way possible they walk sometimes better than they came or with a smile. – less
