    Former Employee - Library Assistant in Ithaca, NY

    I worked at Cornell University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked at one of the library branches as a student employee. The manager was very professional, and I got to interact with professors and students on a direct basis - fulfilling their requests, conversing with them, etc. It was good for money and also good for professional connections.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunity at the position, but I think if I wanted to I could've continued working elsewhere at CU.
