Student Assistant (Former Employee), Beaumont,TexasAugust 17, 2014
Pros: learnt new things

Accountant (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXSeptember 28, 2013
Pros: great work environment.
Cons: wasn't able to grow in the job or progress.
I was promoted to this position as an Accountant once I graduated and obtained my degree. I enjoyed the job but was more of an administrative assitant than an accountant. I would have stayed with this job but I took an offer from LIT that I believed would allow me to obtain more accounting experience.

I dealt with students daily who were in the Academic – more... Partnership program and were in the process of obtaining there Masters Degrees in education. – less
