“The Student Employment Office (SEO) at College of the Canyons (COC) is directed by Mr. Yasser Issa, who is friendly and always ready to make the process for students and faculty seamless and easy, so all of us benefit.  I have personally experienced that students who are employed at the college are often more committed and driven to succeed in their classes, raising retention rates.  The process for hiring is simple and quick and the SEO staff is always available to help, including matching students with an employer for the best fit for their job skills.  I highly recommend the COC SEO for all your student employment hiring needs.”

“We have been fortunate in The Learning Center for the many years of support we have received from the Office of Student Employment.  The College Assistants employed in TLC work directly to help fellow students; whether by tutoring, book checking, or signing students in at the front reception, and this has had a positive impact on our students, and has also helped to ensure their own successful futures.  Student Employment at College of the Canyons, has directly contributed to our students’ success through increased self-confidence, applied knowledge, and developing real life skills.”

“I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to hire a student worker to assist the Professional Development office. My office offers over 600 workshops annually for COC employees, assists in coordinating many campus events, and tracks completed Professional Development workshop hours for all employees. Having a student worker come and help us with our high volume workload and helping coordinate campus events was an immense contribution and allowed us to successfully provide the highest quality service possible.”

“My first job was at College of the Canyons as a student employee.  I was given the hours I needed, a flexible schedule, and a comfortable work environment where my coworkers and supervisor were friendly and supportive.  Student employment changed me for the better as it gave me the opportunities to grow as a person and develop responsibilities that go beyond academics.  I encourage everyone to try to seek employment on campus because it is a wonderful opportunity for you and for the college.”
