Great work environment with helpful coworkers. It was right next to campus which helped when going between work and classes. Working here helped increase my communication skills by helping customers get to meeting and answering the phones. Management was extremely nice and willing to help or show how to do something.
Bemidji State University allowed me to greatly improve my people skills and learn how to manage a variety of crises. Many days there were no requirements other than be supportive of the residents. Other days required the creation of door decorations, bulletin boards and programs. Co-workers are generally great people, as the interview process is fairly intensive. The hardest part is helping everyone and myself at the same time. To me, the most enjoyable part is feeling that I've positively affected someone.
At the Northern Student, I wrote articles and created crossword puzzles. I both worked and played with words. The coworkers were great and all very helpful. My editor-in-chief for the last year was phenomenal as a leader and a coworker.
