Many of our students say that working at the Admission Center is the best professional development opportunity they’ve had during their time at USC. Whether you study Computer Science or Communication, our office provides you with valuable public speaking, customer service, and business skills – skills which benefit you not only during your time at USC but also long after. Here’s a small sample of what some current students at the AC have to say:

Beyond the impact we have on our guests, I’ve learned so much when it comes to presentation and professional skills. No matter how I look at it, I can always apply the things I’ve learned on the job to my life outside the office. That could be emailing and answering phones in a more corporate setting, taking questions and helping our guests, or even just knowing what some killer business casual looks like.Katherine Montes, Class of 2021, Major: Theatre w/ Acting Emphasis; Minor: Cinematic Arts

I learned that I am capable of so much more than I originally thought. I came into the office a little shy and I lacked confidence in my presentation skills, but throughout the training process I found that when you’re passionate about what you’re presenting on, speaking in front of groups of twenty or more guests is a breeze. I never thought I could have such a profound impact on so many people, but this position taught me that I have the potential to change lives. – Megan Seifert; Class of 2021, Major: Psychology; Minors: Sociology; Dance; Nonprofits, Philanthropy, and Volunteerism
