Productive ,full of fun and enjoyment
The IIE’s Varsity College has a strong vocational focus that prepares students for their careers. The IIE’s Varsity College Career Centre, in partnership with industry, serves to support our students with all aspects relating to their career development and growth through coaching, mentoring and engagement. This will enable them to leave the tertiary environment as competent graduates who should thrive in industry and hopefully become active members of our VC Alumni Community.As a prospect or current student you may not realise it, but the part-time work you do while studying will give you a head start with building a competitive CV. Employers want a mix of work-based and academic-based learning and will be impressed by the fact that you have shown initiative and stepped into the work place already. This way you’ll gain skills that complement your chosen career and help you to stand out in a competitive graduate environment. No part-time jobs are guaranteed and they may not always match your field of study. However, all opportunities provide students with transferable skills, instill a work ethic and, of course, provide extra income and independence.
ProsTips from customer and management
Consover times

Receptionist | Rondebosch, Western Cape | 18 Jan 2015
Enjoyable
I truly enjoyed this joy as I did well at it and was appreciated at what I did. my co-workers were also very nice and the management staff also very approachable and kind. The hardest part of the job was to get rejected on the calls as that gave you a very sad/bad feeling compared to the best part of the day when you knew that a matricuant who was coming to Varsity College to have a look at it was one that you phoned. It was an enjoyable job as a Telemarketer and Receptionist.

Staff Member | Westville, KwaZulu-Natal | 23 May 2014
Productive, friendly and efficient workplace
A typical day was filled with seeing students whether it being for an administration purpose or to help them with general tasks and/or queries. I learned how to become more self confident and corporately presentable. My co-workers are very friendly, yet hard working individuals who all strive for the best of the company in every task that they are presented with. At Varsity College, teamwork is essential which makes the environment very productive and efficient. The hardest part of the job is dealing with all kinds of situations that is not really my responsibility but these tasks are always taken upon in my best interests and with a confident attitude.
ProsExcellent work experience, Modern work environment, Potential for growth
ConsNo

Lecturer | Pretoria, Gauteng | 11 Nov 2014
Varsity College has greatly contributed to the growth of my Training & Development expertees and gave me the confidence to explore my potential.
As a Full-Time Lecturer I spend most of the time in the classroom lecturing Human Resources related subjects, but am always available to provide extra assistance to students. I am experienced and passionate about my courses and also manage development, moderation, e-learning and workshops in my additional time. Varsity College evolves, innovates and continually improves upon the way things are done in the classroom. We receive training on a continuous basis to keep up with the newest trends and technology. I value the assistance and diversity of knowledge of my colleagues and management team. The hardest part of lecturing is when students are force to give up their studies due to financial constrains. The nice part of lecturing is when students start their degrees with you as their lecturer, and you go emotionally through all the exams – the good and the bad – and their degrees. It makes me happy to see that we develop a new well educated generation.

How would you describe the pace of work at Varsity College?
Asked 01 Apr 2019
Very stressful but no benefits, students wanted to be spoonfed like high school. Not respecting their work and lazy. Managers differ and there are those who still want to keep their whiteness values but there are those who are matured enough to know that we are all human beings and belong together to serve our nation. If you land in a wrong Department then you will feel how black you are and white students will make your life a nightmare and this will be fueled by some managers, you will be locked outside your class while you need to attend to your Lecturer. You will be made to feel small in the presence of students by some managers who gossip with students about Lecturers.
Answered 24 Feb 2021
All depends on the environment and how the people are at the culture and how the workplace.
