Microbiology Instructor (Former Employee), Costa Mesa, CA – October 28, 2013
I taught clinical microbiology to students interested in becoming nurses. I brought my lab experience and public health experience to the classroom in the job same as the job at Pierce College. I was there only one semester so didn't have coworkers. My supervisor was the dept. chair. Again the hardest part is grading people and the best part was teaching – more... them what I know. – less
An interesting insight into the Financial Aid Process.
Hourly Temp/Clerical (Former Employee), Costa Mesa, CA – August 31, 2012
Pros: working on a college campus, pleasant independent work environment.
Cons: no health care, lost feeling due to lack of training, which could be attributed to both the complexity of the subject matter, and insufficient funding for the office
A typical day at work at Orange Coast College consisted of meeting with students with they came to the office with questions and directing them to the appropriate next step in the financial aid process. I learned a lot about the complexity of the financial aid system and about financial aid available in the community college system in California. Management – more... was generally very positive and encouraging. The hardest part of the job was the frequent inability to assist students, as their problems required a specialist attention and the office was overloaded with work and lacking appropriate numbers of people to accommodate the demand. The most enjoyable part of the job was working on a college campus and being able to experience the process from a different perspective. – less
Medical Assistant Intern (Former Employee), Costa Mesa, CA – May 7, 2012
The 160 hour internship I finished at this site was very rewarding. I worked both in the front and back office. I roomed patients, obtained vital signs, conducted patient interviews, performed venipuncture, assisted in minor office procedures, assisted the doctor, set up patient appointments, ordered lab tests from outside labs, and checked the supply – more... inventory. The nurses at the health center were great mentors and I was able to shadow their daily duties. I enjoyed every day that I worked at the clinic. – less
