Great Place to Work
Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee), Columbia, SCMarch 13, 2013
USC-Columbia is a great place to work if you want the city life environment, but you don't want to feel overwhelm by it. The administration is okay, it can be very bureaucratic at times. Each department operates within its own culture, which is great. As an employee of the School of Library and Information Science, it is leading the charge in many new – more... initiatives across campus. The most enjoyable part of my job is teaching students to think critically and become life-long learners. – less

University of South Carolina, Athletics Department
Digital & Social Media Intern (Former Employee), Columbia, SCMarch 7, 2013
Pros: being able to see the inside of all the gamecocks stadiums, the press box & watching a game from up there
Cons: not being able to cheer in the press box
I sincerely love my internship work at Carolina. I think one of the reasons I love it is because there is always something new to do. A typical workday always includes monitoring and updating our social media sites i.e. Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram, Spurs Up Blog which is always entertaining and informative to see what fans as well – more... as our online sponsors are responding to and what they want to see more of. Then I either have an interview of a player or need to add a new interview to our website or I design new graphics for social media sites or posters for the Gamecocks. On game-day a typical day involves being at the stadium 3 hours before kick-off and setting up in the press box, after I assist with an auctioned tour of Williams Brice Stadium (usually about 20 fans), then I photograph and shoot the "gamecock walk" where our players are greeted by fans as they parade into the stadium. From there I monitor and update Twitter feeds before and throughout the game. Also during the game, I photograph the crowd and fan photos which I later add to our online photo albums. The hardest part of a game-day is running up and down the numerous stairs and being everywhere at once, luckily I utilize a tablet and can do most of my tweeting between taking fan photos. The most enjoyable part of the job is Monday mornings after a gameday weekend or now that is is baseball season the day after a great game, its amazing to see the reactions we get on our social media sites and how much our work as a team increases others experiences at a sporting event. Also, it is pretty exciting to log on to our social media and see someone has used my design for their Facebook Coverphoto or Twitter background. – less

Pros: great flexibility
Cons: low pay
I love the flexibility but it is government and the opportunity for advancement is not great unless you totally change jobs. They do not give too many raises either.

A day in a Residence hall at USC
Desk Assistant for the Housing Department of USC (Current Employee), East Quad Residence HallDecember 26, 2012
Pros: you are allowed to bring your computer and cell phone to work
Cons: very hard to get hours. at the most i get 8 hours on one paycheck
I typically work anywhere from 2-6 hours on a shift. I go in, sign my time sheet and sit at the desk and basically answer any questions my residents might have. My boss is the Resident Life Coordinator and has an office right next to mine. Any questions I cannot answer will be referred to him. My co-workers are other desk assistants as well as Resident – more... Mentors who live in the Residence Halls with the students. The hardest part of the job is dealing with unruly visitors who don't want to abide by building rules. The most enjoyable part is knowing that my residents value me as an employee and have no problem approaching me with any questions or concerns – less

decent job during college if you have the time.
Resident Mentor (Current Employee), Columbia, SCDecember 11, 2012
Pros: half off housing, quarter off meal plan
Cons: instability, working with a high number of freshmen.
Working for University Housing has been a different experience every day. Personally, I like stability, so it was not for me, but there is much to learn and experience as a Resident Mentor for the university.

Teacher lab assistant (Former Employee), Aiken, SCNovember 1, 2012
a day at work required that you take care of the animals and prep all labs for the professors and help during the time of classes. I learn the responsibilities of being self reliant and working well with lab equipment. I enjoyed working with the professors and helping students with their questions.
