    I have been working at Central Michigan University part-time

    Pros

    You are also working with other students interested in similar fields. Not only is working for CM-Life a job, it also acts as a learning experience multiple times a month. I have experience working with clients, sales representatives, and lead designers. Works with my school schedule very well.

    Cons

    Pay is only minimum wage and there is no relationship/minimal talk with clients.
