"Being an undergraduate teaching assistant was an amazing experience for me; I firmly believe that the best way to learn something well is to teach it to others, and I was able to do just that with my Python skills. I could answer the students' questions, and if I had any, I could defer to the professors. It was overall a great atmosphere, even online (on Piazza)."

"George Mason University is a great place to work and working there as a teaching assistant gave me what I needed to build confidence in myself as I was working as a lab instructor with almost 75 students. I learnt to build morale and be more sensitive towards other people. I am very grateful to the professor I worked under who was very understanding and supportive."

"I worked for Fourth Estate for three years. First as a graphic designer and then as Art Director, as well as writing articles the entire time. The office environment and other editors were a pleasure to work with and everyone was very supportive and helpful. The compensation was not great and the computers were not outdated, but the co-workers and writers made the experience very good."
