I love teaching. UIC gives me this opportunity to find my favorite job.
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee), Chicago, ILFebruary 20, 2014
As a TA, I am also a PhD student. I have to spend some time in my learning. But I enjoy my teaching job. I give students discussion sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I also need to grade their quizzes and exams, and record their scores. I like discussion sessions the best, my students and I have positive and active interactions.
Sometimes, when I – more... made more efforts to explain, my students got more confused. I was very upset about that. Fortunately, I got ideas from my students, and I realized many details that I didn't pay attention at first. For example, My teaching should be consistent with their professor's teaching, I shouldn't skip too many algebra steps.
I hope I can have a job of teaching after I graduate from UIC. – less

Building Management was the best Student Job you could hope for
Building Manager -Student Supervisor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: in the lulls you could study.
Cons: scheduling you have to find coverage, worked holidays.
I worked the night shift, so the typical day began by escorting students out of the Student Center, locking exterior exits and checking for building maintenance. We did hourly rounds of the grounds. Co-workers were fellow students from all different majors and a truly diverse group. Our supervisors were down to earth and helpful with our scheduling – more... between classes, other jobs, and extra curricular activity. I learned to operate in an office environment, cooperate with staff, other departments, and customers/clients in an efficient and professional manner. I learned that any job worth doing is worth doing right. – less

Nutrition Educator/After-School Coordinator (Current Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 4, 2013
Pros: lots of people. tons of opportunities. good benefits
Cons: grant funded positions
During the school year, my day is typically busy with teaching and educating children on health within the Chicago Public Schools. Our staff are usually in schools for the entire day. Once, the schools are finished for the particular day, we usually have to conduct an after-school program within the Chicago Park District. These programs last for the – more... entire school year with different schools as well as different parks.

In the summer months, our staff is busy working summer camps. We educate and provide physical activities for the kids. We usually have 5 to 6 parks within a day.

The most enjoyable part of my job is having the opportunity to work with the public and the community in assisting them in their lives. – less

Comfortable place to work
Office Support Specialist (Current Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 1, 2013
The day is comfortable. There are dead lines but organization makes them easy to accomplish. Management is consistent and helpful. Coworkers are motivated and energetic. Hardest part of the job is turning away students who don't meet the criteria. I most enjoy when a student is accepted to college and is prepared to complete their chosen course of study.
