What I Learned
Senior Undergraduate (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 3, 2015
Pros: Open Discussion, Community Service Projects & Research Projects
Cons: N/A
During my undergraduate studies at SDSU, taking Multicultural Ed as a prerequisite to graduate taught me a whole lot about diversity and pluralism itself. I learned to set aside some of my bias and embrace how others also looked at things such as political views, religion etc. without coming across as being judgmental. In essence, this course taught me how to look at society as a whole by keeping an open mind and also showing tolerance at the same time.

Great student job
Graduate Assistant/Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJune 3, 2015
Pros: Flexible work hours, multiple skills increased, ability to work one on one with professors
Cons: Relatively low pay and hour caps, possible assignment overload
Working at the Economics department as a Graduate Assistant/Teaching Assistant was an interesting job. Some weeks there are far too many assignments to do and not enough time to complete them. However, other weeks there were barely any assignments to do. It was fun answering questions for the students and being able to summarize complex economics topics into terms they could understand. Helping out professors with their research supplemented my data analysis skills and provided them with extra time to focus on their own research. It is a good job while working on a Master's or Bachelor's degree as the teachers are willing to work around schedules.

Good Opportunity for Graduate Students
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee), San Diego, CAFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: health benefits, summer work available
Cons: small income, out of school grading
While the job didn't pay well as far as actual yearly salary it was fun to be able to teach the students. I would have to plan my weekly lectures as well as grade homework. In the class I would give the students a quiz and answer any questions while they were performing the lab. All of my other TAs were fun to hang out with, although we rarely actually worked together. Management was overall good, but the lab manual was in severe need of updating, but we were each in charge of our own labs. The hardest part of the job was having to do an extra assignment such as helping lecturers with their separate class.

AZTEC for Life
Portuguese as a Foreign Language Lecturer (Current Employee), San Diego, CAFebruary 9, 2015
Pros: faculty friendliness, sense of belonging
Cons: full time contracts needed.
My experience working at San Diego State University has been great. I started as a student in their Linguistics program, pursuing an academic certificate in Applied Linguistics and ESL teaching in 2001, which enabled me to apply for my first ESL teaching position in Adult Education in 2004. Once I completed my MA TESOL in 2006, I was invited to apply for a part-time Lecturer position in the department of Spanish and Portuguese. I have been teaching consecutive courses there since 2009.

Administrative Support Coordinator (Current Employee), San Diego, CAOctober 23, 2014
A typical day at work begins around 7:45am. Preparing for the daily operation that begins at 8am. This gives us the time to open the multiple programs we will use throughout the day, gather material that will be needed. We begin by answering as many emails as we can get to, along with answering 100s of phone calls being directed to our office, from the general public, students, former students, parents of current and past students, on the policies of the school and the Office of the Registrar.

SDSU, has been very rewarding and allowed me the opportunity to work in one of the most important fields in our society. It also allowed me to work with some the smartest people In our discipline. Each of my co-workers possesses a unique skill set to perform special task. It makes for a very interesting experience during the work week. The hardest part of the job is obtaining information as it changes often in large institutions in a timely manner.

The most enjoyable part of the job is working with our students.
