Typical Work Day: A typically workday involves troubleshooting computer related issues. (Similar to entry level IT Support).

What I Learned: Furthered my communication skills, learned networking skill sets, computer troubleshooting skill sets, organizational processes and program structures.


Perspective on Leadership: Management was great, however, as with every organization there is always room for improvement. My suggestion would be to develop stronger connections with employees.


Culture: Workplace culture is fantastic, employees and management are respectful and always willing to lend a hand.


Hardest Part of the Job: Dealing with difficult students, inpatient individuals or coming across problems outside of our scope. (Such as hardware failure etc.)


Best Parts of the Job: Helping student's overcome tech barriers, empowering students to increase the digital literacy and assisting faculty with tech concerns.
Pros
Flexibility, learning environment, great people

Limited room to advance and poor hours

I worked with enthusiastic students and dedicated teachers and administrators. I loved working there, but when they switched from Quark to InDesign I was no longer qualified - I now am an expert at Indesign.

Great place to work. Walking through the halls you feel like you're apart of a community. People are friendly. Employees and teachers are supportive.

The computer system is hard to manage. If you take the time to learn it, it gets easier.

Working at the College as a Co-op student gave me great hands on experience in a real world setting. Staff were great, managers were excellent. They gave me great advice to continue my journey to becoming a licensed electrician.

Working at Conestoga exceeded my expectations. The polytechnic education system provides students with the practical hands-on tool-set to drive innovation and world classed excellence as they enter the workforce. It is more than a job, but a calling. If you have the background and are a like minded individual with a burning desire to share your experiential knowledge, Conestoga is the place for you.

Being in the classroom is rewarding and challenging. Navigating Conestoga "systems", preparation and grading requires far more effort than expected. The college provides an incredible amount of support through workshops. Despite the educational support, as a part time instructor be prepared to work as an individual. Some attempts are made at integrating but generally you are on your own.

It was nice being able to make my own hours that worked around my school schedule as well as keeping a balance on my life and homework.
The hardest part of the job was about being prepared. Each student had different needs.
