"I started at UAB as a temp in 2010 and was offered full time employment in 2011. As a state-run university, the benefits are excellent and the pay is very competitive. My advice to anyone seeking employment at UAB, particularly on the campus side, would be to do some homework regarding the departments (both administrative and academic.) Find out as much as you can about the work environment and the department leaders. As with with any company, some departments are better managed than others."

"The University of Alabama has been more than a 2 time alma mater to me. It has also served as a safe ground for me to leave the same everlasting impact on students in the same manner it did me. I came into the university as a first generation college student seeking answers. I'm leaving the university with my answers met and seeking a new foundation to began providing solutions. Our Career Center department does just that. We aide in exploring the our student body, developing them from within, and connecting them finally with the necessary network."

"It was an academic position. As in any academic position, a student, you strongly depend on your advisor. I strongly disagreed with his work methodology because of its lack of planning and scarce resource; also, I felt uncomfortable with the work attribution. I hope mine was just a particular case of having a bad experience with an advisor, and not a general rule in the university. Actually, I need to mention that I met really good professors and great students."

"I have worked in UAH for around an year. I was appointed as a Graduate Teaching Assistant and it was one of the most informative experience that you could ever get. This gives a good look into how different people come up with different ideas and puts things into perspective. A GTA in UAH means full ride and stipend, which helped me a lot."
