Desk Assistant Supervisor

"I started at Georgia Southern University Student-Athlete Services two years ago during my sophomore year at school here and I immediately realized it was a perfect fit for me. They allowed me to work with my class schedule and another job all while being able to learn and move up in my position. Working closely with upper management allowed me to gain knowledge of the industry and make meaningful relationships."

Georgia Southern University Employee

"Georgia Southern tries to assist their IT professionals with the necessary tools. The establishment falls short because of lack of training, advancement, and self entitlement. There are a lot of communication issues across IT teams and projects take entirely too long to complete."
