Busy clinical lab with diverse patient population
Intern Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Boston, MAJuly 1, 2015
A typical day included a proper set up and stocking of needles in the phlebotomy lab, greeting patients and having them sign in while we checked for their providers' orders in the new medical record system. Then we called them in and performed venipunctures. I was supervised by the team leader who was very helpful and wise. The hardest part of the job was making sure you were not hurting the patient. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting a patient on the first stick and completing all of the orders.

A good research environment, but with poor compensation in an expensive city
Research Fellow (Current Employee), Boston, MAJune 29, 2015
Research potential for doing impactful and importance science is extremely high. With a large scientific community, the possibilities for collaboration is also a big plus. However, NIH standards for research fellow salaries may provide in other major research centers, but can be a major struggle in the Boston area.

Productive volunteer experience
Volunteer Work (Former Employee), Boston, MAJune 17, 2015
Pros: free lunch
Cons: standing on feet for four hours
I was admitted to the Medical Career Exploration Program, which is hosted at Brigham Women’s Hospital during the end of my sophomore year and I volunteered eight hour shifts a week. I was required to serve sixty hour shifts transporting and serving patients, and eighty hours in the baby nursery department shifts over the course of a year. My duties in the central transport and patient access department included transporting blood, specimen, wheelchairs, and patients to their proper destination. I also assisted everyone who came to the information desk and responded to their various inquiries. I actually loved my tasks at the hospital because I got to interact with people, which makes me happy. I felt comfortable, and this environment was where I wanted to be.

No advancement opportunities, poor compensation/benefits
PRACTICE ASSISTANT (Current Employee), Boston, MAJune 14, 2015
Pros: Pleasant co-workers, helping to improve patients' health/lives
Cons: No chance for advancement, compensation does not reflect scope of work/ability required
Initially, a dynamic, stimulating environment that pushed my abilities, that, unfortunately, grew to be volatile and stressful, curbing further growth. Multiple changes in management over the course of a year created lapses in direction/management inattentive, compensation/benefits do not reflect scope & depth of job responsibilities, nor ability required, culminating in high turnover rates.
