What Students Say
I love working for the school because it’s much easier to coordinate my class schedule and work schedule together, all in one system, as opposed to how it would be with an off-campus job. I also love being on campus because I don’t have to drive to work, work in a secular environment, or worry about a different dress code.
The ease of having a job right here on campus is a major plus. I work in the library, so I have been able to learn all the resources we have available for us, better use them myself, and help others use them. As a professional, I have learned a lot about PR and the difference between understanding something myself and explaining it to others. Working with students in the library, I have learned how to find out exactly what they need and communicate clearly to them how to get it.
The Work Assistance Program at PCC has been a major blessing to me and my family. Not only am I working for my education, but I am meeting new people and learning new skills. I have the great opportunity of working at the cabinet shop. After four years, not only do I get to graduate with a degree, but I also get to leave with a skill that I know I can use for the rest of my life. These skills will help me in whatever the Lord has for my life. The Work Assistance Program has also taught me proper time management and work ethics that will carry on through my future career.
What I have enjoyed the most in the Work Assistance Program is the people I have met. The shared experience at work brings students together and is continued as friendships after work hours are over. Working in dining services taught me speed and versatility, and now working in one of the offices at PCC has brought me experience working in a professional setting, preparing me for my future job using my office major. The Work Assistance Program has taught me the importance of hard work and has provided me valuable experience I can bring to my future jobs.
Summer Work Opportunities
Are you interested in making money during the summer in a safe, Christian environment? Through the Work Assistance Program, PCC offers a number of summer work positions. Summers on campus are more laid-back, with extra time to hang out with friends and do the things you love—while doing meaningful work. These positions are limited, so apply quickly!
