Administrative Assistant II (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – April 21, 2017
I have learned several things in my tenure here at NSU. The hardest part of the job is the advancement opportunities within your department, but the best part is the fact that the University is so big that there are opportunities everywhere. Great, friendly environment.
A typical day at Nova Southeastern University Lower School is all about routine. Once you get the gist of what to do it's just a matter of doing it again the next day. This can be good or bad depending on your preferences. I learned that I was not ready to pursue a career in teaching so it's not something that suited me. The hardest part of the job for me was that working in a school at such a young age causes a lot of your co-workers as well as parents of the children to treat you condescendingly. Starting work there straight out of high school felt like an accomplishment, but little time passed until everyone else made me feel like an outsider. It felt like everyone there had it all figured out, while I was just there to learn new skills, grow, and see where life takes me. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely getting to work with some amazing, intelligent, and creative kids. They really make you feel like you make a difference. They don't judge you for your age, because it's not a concept that they think about.
I wasn't the first they made promises too..... oh yes we will make sure and yes you will get...... I left a job making 110,000 a year with a promise of an equivalent salary. they use this to get you in..... nobody gets what they offer once you are here...... we are sorry but... and No raises have been given for 5 years ..... we have free education..... yeah no. you will pay more in books than a midwestern student pays in a year.... Run Far and fast.....I am!
Network Administrator and Engineer (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – March 20, 2017
As a student worker, the Network Lab exposed you to new technologies which were challenging to learn. If you weren't exposed to Linux, you'd get a crash course in the OS. Also gave you the ability to provide real assistance to the faculty when needed which may immediately benefit the student body including yourself since you get to use the implementations you made. Only real problem was there was always a conflict with management of the lab vs. the school itself.

Admissions Service Representative (Current Employee) – Davie, FL – March 18, 2017
Working in the HPD admissions office is a great experience. You get to meet lots of new people. The work staff get along with each other and work as a team. There is a lot of work but it is still rewarding to make a difference in applicants lives as they get their acceptance into the program they have worked hard to get into so that they can train in their desired profession.

I worked here prior to the new rules so I was able to get my education at no cost to me. Higher education can be difficult to work in but you just have to remember that you just as good as everyone else.
Enrollment Processing Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – February 20, 2017
managed a large staff of 12 from various areas who worked great as a team. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing who stood out as leaders. The hardest part of the job was not being able to do anything but oversee what they were doing.
I am a retired senior citizen who would like to work part time. I am very reliable and punctual. I loved my job. Working behind the scene ordering books and communicating with vendors while keeping account records and managing work study students.

Working for Nova Southeastern University has been a great experience. From supporting Students, Faculty and Staff with technical issues for the last 11 years has given me the skills to handle Technology issue far beyond an university setting.
