Network Lab Assistant (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TX – August 11, 2014
Great atmosphere. While on campus, I was able to complete task and still have plenty of time to study. I gained more experience working with different business software and updateed audio and visual equipment. My co-workers were fun to work with. We would get a plan together for any task and execute it. The common goal we had with management was to – more... make the computer labs easier for faculty and students to access using these new softwares readily available for them. – less
Career Counseling Intern (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TX – August 10, 2014
Cons: higher education politics
As an intern I learned so much at Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi. The environment is conducive to learning everything you need to know about becoming a Career Counselor. A typical work day consisted of working directly with students regarding various elements of career development, resume writing, job searching, interviewing strategies, career – more... explorations, and reviewing career assessment results. I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse population of students, including domestic and international students, the campus community, and the public. My co-workers and boss were always willing to help or contribute when I asked for advice with students and even let me sit in on some of their counseling sessions to observe their counseling style. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to help students, they would come in visibly distraught and feeling the pressures of being a student, trying to find their way, and setting themselves up in their careers. When a student left feeling significantly better and making choices and moves in the right direction for their career paths it made becoming a Career Counselor all worth it. – less
Student Worker (Former Employee), College Station, TX – August 1, 2014
The building was relaxed, full of friends who turned the job into something more than simply work. They understand being a student and realized school comes first. Often times there was little going on, but then multiple projects would go on at once.
