  1. French Teaching Assistant

    Former Employee - Teaching Assistant in Clinton, NY

    I worked at Hamilton College - New York part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Hamilton College French Department offered much flexibility to teaching assistants in formatting their teaching sessions and allowed assistants to be creative in how they presented materials to students.

    Cons

    Teaching assistants were sometimes left with little direction for conducting lessons. Students sometimes arrived at the teaching session unaware of what topics would be covered that week or how to prepare for drills.

    Advice to Management

    Professors should offer more direction to teaching assistants. Teaching assistants should have access to the course syllabus and example drills off of which they can structure their lessons.

    Pros

    The Admissions office is full of good people with a common goal--to provide students access to quality education. All of my experiences were very positive.

    Cons

    One of the biggest issues is ultimately the location. Located in Clinton, NY, it can be hard for a young professional to make social and professional connections outside of the quiet town.

    I have been working at Hamilton College - New York part-time

    Pros

    Plenty of on-campus jobs, easy to fit into your class schedule. Certain positions offer internship programs your senior year, which look great on a resume when you're trying to get a real-world job.

    Cons

    Most jobs are barely above minimum wage, and dont really offer any opportunities to make more money. Also hamilton enforces a strict 20 hour per week maximum per student employee
