Positions available for Work Experience Students are the following:
Office Assistant: Type, File, Maintain Records, answer phones and operate business equipment such as word processing and personal computers The Office Assistant position in general is becoming more competitive, calculated just like the Computer Aide position. One business course is all it use to take to be competitive for the Office Assistant position and your GPA was the big factor in rank. Now, both the Computer Aide and Office Assistant positions are ranked based on the number of relevant courses taken towards the position in which they are applying and then their GPA. (Please pick up a packet to see the NSA Approved Class List)
Computer Aides: Operate our data processing equipment, often the most sophisticated equipment on the market (must have completed at least 3 technical computer classes-such as Java, html, visual basic, ap computer science, webpage design by the end of your Junior year) For the Computer Aide position in general, students that are being hired for that position have taken 5 or more technical computer courses and have a very high unweighted GPA. NSA counts each 1/2 credit as one point, and students are receiving a ranking number count. Quite a few Computer Aide applicants have also gone the extra mile and have taken a technical college course to make themselves more competitive or to make themselves competitive because their school may not offer any technical computer courses. College courses earn more credits ranking those students even higher.
