    I worked at Valencia College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The relationships I built with students, professors and administrative staff have been life changing. I learned so much about teaching, listening and writing in the way that you must listen to the needs and concerns of a client. I improved my research and communicating skills substantially during my time at Valencia.

    Cons

    It was very difficult for me to get a schedule that does not interfere with my class schedule at Rollins College. I had to leave my position because my job was based on working inside a classroom and it was nearly impossible to be a student and a Leader.
