    I have been working at San José State University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The university offers to work under professors and doctorates who are well known and established personalities in Silicon Valley. You cannot ask for a better chance to network.

    Cons

    Being a state University, the locals also participate in job process. Students have a hard time getting a job, which is easy to get in other universities which are private.
