Productive work, with opportunities for technical learning
Student Lab Monitor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 June 2018
The work is rewarding and allows for a great experience in interacting with other students and the instructors. There are several opportunities to learn about the technical aspects of the equipment available.
The hours are based around the school and personal schedule, and are flexible enough for those studying full time, or commuting.
There is however no real job security, and low chances of continued employment after graduation.
The management and coworkers are great to work with and the work itself if fairly enjoyable, but the hours never exceed above 10-12 hrs/week, making it necessary for a second job to cover expenses.
Flexible schedule to work around school and commute, fun and friendly work environment

Working as a student in OCAD University actually get you into knowing concepts and ideas including the development of your own sense of art and design compatibility. Hard work is needed in order to achieve any outstanding result, as well as determination and singled mindedness. As a student, despite of not reaching high marks, I feel the fact that I am actually getting something out of OCAD University as a designer.
