Great work experience for Student Workers
Aquatics Staff/ lifeguard, Wayne, PA - May 30, 2015
As a student at Cabrini College, i had the opportunity to work for many different offices at the college. My first and longest position was working as part of the aquatics staff as a lifeguard for all four years of my college career. I worked under the director of Aquatics and Head Coach of both the men and women's swim team. With me on stand at all times was another certified lifeguard, most of which were other Cabrini students. We worked together to keep the pool, locker rooms, and pool deck clean and safe for our patrons.
Along with life guarding, I have worked in the Education Resource Center where we have a Macintosh Laboratory for education majors to complete and print work. My sophomore year at Cabrini College, I was an Orientation Leader. With this position, I worked with a large team to create a fun and exciting week for incoming freshmen students. My junior year I was a Resident Assistant for one of largest buildings on campus at Cabrini College. I took great pride in my role as a Resident Assistant. I created fun and appropriate bulletin boards, programs to build community in my school, protect and ensure safety of any and all persons who are in my area, and work as a team member with the Residence Life office. Although I did not work every job simultaneously, I had two jobs at once during most of my career at Cabrini so finding the balance between work and school was hard but with strong time management and organizational skills, I was able to spend enough time on both. I was able to meet many great people through my positions at Cabrini who each have taught me something special.
