Tutoring students in the field of mathematics. Excellent colleagues, best boss ever. Great place to teach as well as learn. Although pay was not as high but you could get plenty of hours and have a flexible schedule.
At work I file, help people at the counter, answer phones, stuff letters and applications, enter student information in the system, create ID numbers for extended studies or update non-credit students. All co-workers are friendly and responsible. I've learned to be more confident because I have to interact with people on a daily basis.

NCC is a great school and has many opportunities for growth and the people and students are great. Co-workers are supportive of each other and job enhancement opportunities (training/workshops) are always available. The paperwork required can be daunting at times but once you are used to the format it becomes secondary. I enjoyed working with the students the most.
Federal Work-Study Assistant (Former Employee) – Norwalk, CT – July 22, 2014
Norwalk community college was a great place for students just starting out to build their skills in an office environment. A typical day at work for me was between it being very slow to very high paced. There hardly was a middle ground. Myself and my co-workers would greet any students or parents that came in and assisted with any issues they had to the best of our ability. I assisted with helping students make appointments with Advisors during the school year. My co-workers were very friendly and it felt more like a family.
Student Activities Staff Member (Former Employee) – Norwalk, CT – April 29, 2014
I always had fun at my job, and always had something to do. I was also taking classes. There was always time to study and do homework. My day would start at 8 am. My schedule was very flexible to include my class schedule. It wasn't a tough job. I answered phones, typed up letters, made posters, and other random tasks. I enjoyed my co-workers and my manager. We always had a relaxed environment and always worked good together. I worked at a student lounge, so It was always fun to see and hear all that was going on around me. It was a great environment.
I went to work with a success attitude. Finishing school was my goal but then I found out that I can work and get an education. That was assume. I begin to float from one department to the next when I planted in the culinary arts department. I learned so much and done so many things that I thank God for the time.
Financial Aid Associate (Former Employee) – Norwalk, CT – March 25, 2014
I loved my job at the college! While I was working towards my associates degree, I started working in the Financial Aid Office. Here I was able to work with students and parents. I was responsible for helping students apply for financial aid, filing confidential records, and other administrative tasks. This job gave me a great foundation of what life in an office setting was like and although at times could be slow, the administrators always made sure we were learning.

The administration cares about students and focuses on a diverse population that includes well-educated older students seeking new career directions. It reaises the caliber of the teaching and administration.
Spent several hours a week overseeing the design labs at the college. The labs are used during non-class time for the students to do work, and I was on hand to help with any issues and also got to design promo materials for the art/design department.
