    I worked at Berkeley College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CIO and VP are leaders, they set the tone of the department. You will have access to the latest technology: software and hardware. Great coworkers, management is approachable and supportive, plenty of training opportunities. Goal oriented, fast paced, productive and encouraging environment. If problems arise they are solved on the spot, just speak up.

    Cons

    IS department is small once in awhile you will have a lot of stuff on your plate. Learn time management skills and communicate proactively with stakeholders.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate Mentorship program into onboarding.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Berkeley College.

    Interview

    I applied and was recommended by a Director to the Director of Admissions. I applied and got the recommendation the same. I got a call the same day by the director of that department asking a couple of questions and sent me an assessment. I had only 3 days to take the test since they were hiring quickly. I got a call to schedule a phone interview for the next day. Did the phone interview and was invited to interview face to face with another director the next day. The interview didn't feel like an interview it was more like having a conversations and the questions weren't as hard questions. The questions were not tricky at all. Just more like getting to know you and if you match the requirements in personality and skills. It helped a lot that I'm a Berkeley College Alumni as well so I have great knowledge on the college. The interview took an hour. Got an offer the same day that after noon!
