Student Services Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAJune 26, 2014
I enjoy helping my clients come to a space where they can find hope to share their story or challenges. A typical day at work for me needs to be fun but serious. I do mini selfcare exercises in order for me to replenish my energy and fully present for clients. I write progress notes so having a computer in my office is very important. I consider my work environment as my second home this is why my co-workers are part of my family. I like co-workers who work hard and also party hard yet be present in what they do. The hardes part of my job is the need for me to constantly update my skills by attending conferences and workships. I sometimes want to read almost every new psychotherapy books that are out there. This is so that can be prepared in holding my clients.The most important part of my job is that I am previleged for someone to trust me with their life's journey or story.
Pros
flexible, open, vulnerability, abiding with the hippa, and bbs rules.
Cons
work addict, small friends, may run into clients in public.

Financial Aid Director (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAJanuary 23, 2013
typical day is always busy. I learned that you need to really be careful on who to trust,. The management, some support you some not. Very nice co-workers and we all work as a team. Hardest part of my job is to help students find all types of financial assistance to help them pay for their education and so they can achieve their goals and see them graduate from the program with a degree. The most enjoyable job is to see the student you help achived their goals and received their degree. I loved helping customers or students and enjoyed dealing with people.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
better medical insurance, short lunches, etc.
