    I worked at Southern Polytechnic State part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love helping people students or professors, this was one of the ways of helping people to solve their computer problems, rebooting, troubleshooting, diagnosing and solving common and rigorous IT/Computer problems.

    Cons

    Huge amount of responsibility because the numbers of both students and professors needing help are always high being an institution but this really gave me the boost I needed. They are tough challenges and challenges make me stronger and better at what I do.

    Advice to Management

    Do not feel that students are always overwhelmed with challenges, because challenges really make students better at what they do
