This experience has allowed me to work with a great team of people spread throughout the country.
Program Advisor, Aviation Management (Current Employee), Palomar College, San Marcos, CAJanuary 9, 2013
Pros: i do many things without true supervision. my supervisors are 3, 000 miles away.
Cons: because my supervisors are so far away, i feel at times, they have no idea what i do on a daily basis.
My day begins early in the morning and usually ends when outstanding matters are complete.

This position has allowed me to think outside the box.

The most enjoyable part of the job is making that phone call to students informing them that they have completed all requirements for their degree.
