Fitness Center Supervisor (Current Employee), Champaign, IL – April 17, 2013
A typical day at work includes many different dynamics within the health and fitness world as well as clerical realm. It will range from answering class registration and grade breakdown to general fitness questions. I have learned about the wide range of the student body mindset with respect to classes and time management while working with pleasant – more... student workers and peers. The hardest part of the job is explaining to students that are in a failing grade point average that they must repeat the class involved with the use of the Parkland fitness center. The best part of my job includes enjoying time with coworkers and watching the health of others improve. – less

Student Technologist/Internship (Former Employee), Champaign, IL – September 25, 2012
Parkland College was a great place to start after highschool since I had no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up. The guidance counselors and advisors are very helpful and suggested taking a personality placement test to help me figure out what I would be good at and find the most fulfilling as a career. I began by taking general education classes – more... which would transfer to a four year university. My experience at Parkland was such a positive one that I suggested to my own children to start there before attending a four year university. – less
