Great way to make side money and finish a degree

Graduate Assistant (Former Employee)
Charleston, IL

ProsThe graduate assistant position covered tuition for a Masters program. Additionally, it paid a modest stipend to cover living expenses. In other words, this position gave me a free Masters degree-it's hard to say that's a bad thing! Also, this allowed the student to work closely with a faculty member, allowing him or her to seek mentorship.

ConsThe stipend was a bit too modest, but then again the non-cash benefits more than made up for the modesty in stipend. The hours were great-only twenty per week, which allowed more than enough time to focus on school work and assistantship work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
