Help Desk Technician (Current Employee), Manassas, VA – November 14, 2014
I maintain all the computers on campus to make sure they all have network connectivity. I learn new ways to go about solving technical problems for staff and customers in order to save time in the future Managers are very friendly and they all have found me to be very reliable as a fist line of defense in troubleshooting. The hardest part of the job – more... would have to be taking inventory of the campus as i am the only IT support in the center. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the face of satisfied customers after fixing their technical problems – less
Technology / Technician trainee (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – December 16, 2014
In class reviews and in lab training provided adequate skills for entry level work. Technology class that i attended for 4 trimesters had a small class where easier access to lab equipment was provided. A very large class in the Technician group made access difficult.
Student Worker (Former Employee), Richardson, TX – December 13, 2014
Pros: working with student processing
A typical day begins with opening the classrooms and ensure that all the boards were cleaned in each room. I would set up the student lounge area with coffee, cups, and napkins. I return to my desk and check emails for any additional assigned work from the Center Dean or an Administrative Advisor. I check each day for student documents need to be scanned – more... into the student portal to student records updated. I enjoyed working with the students the most. I learned alot from the faculty about how and what documents you need to enroll in college and about reliability, creativity, determination, ethics, customer service, critical thinking, patience. I learned how to use a new processing system (Oracle). The most enjoyable part of my job was helping the students with their schedules, making appointments with student finance or an advisor, and helping them get all the required documents from other schools they had attended to complete their enrollment applications with DeVry. – less
High potential for training and producing work-ready students. Focus on technology advancement, current work-ready skills. High turnover due to downturn in economy and industry/policy changes.
Must be technologically competent and flexible. High level of active learning required, varying schedule, heavy workload.
Co-workers best part of job. Students – more... most enjoyable part of job. Hardest part of job was lack of training and ongoing support to metro campuses. Change implementation not communicated adequately to smaller locations. Initiative and critical thinking skills required if any hope of being successful. – less
Admission Advisor (Former Employee), Naperville, IL – November 28, 2014
Pros: great school, excellent experience gained.
Cons: not enough pay for type of work
Working as an Admissions Advisor taught me how to sell an intangible item. I was responsible for selling a $60,000.00 education to potential students who were not sure if investing in their education was worth it. This job required me to use extremely effective probing questions to help students see the benefit of furthering their education online which – more... as 4 times more expensive than Community Colleges. This was one of the most beneficial sales jobs I've ever had because it taught me how to ask great questions and overcome objections to effectively benefit sell. – less
