1) I believe that there are many reasons why I want to be employed by the Chico State Success Center as a student assistant. I feel that it would be favorable to work at a place such as the CSSC. First off, working at the CSSC would be very helpful for future jobs as well as my career to learn what is expected of me in an office setting in terms of standards and how to act professionally for future jobs.
