fast paced environment
I have worked as an assistant academic advisor at WVNCC between semesters for the last 2 years. I love the work! I love the people! I would love to do this kind of work on a more consistent basis, but my services are only needed when the influx of students is high. When I am working, I get to help students with career and academic planning, registration, navigating the financial aid process and calming their fears. The hardest part is the occasional difficult student with an abrasive personality and vulgar mouth, but thankfully, they are few and far between. The most enjoyable part is helping a student register for their final semester and prepare for life after college.
