    I have been working at Virginia Tech part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been a graduate teaching assistant for the Communication department for a year and a half. The support the department offers is outstanding and you never feel like you can't talk to at least one person. The training they provide you to teach public speaking is conducted the week prior to school starting and it is very thorough. I felt well prepared to teach come the first day of classes.

    Cons

    I would imagine being a public speaking GTA for the department would be difficult if you were terrified of public speaking, had poor time management, and were an unorganized person.
