As the Graduate research assistant, the work hours were long but flexible. The work environment is very light and my supervisor is fun to work with. I learned a lot from my supervisors and my peers.

Adjunct Instructor
Instructor, Apparel Design & Merchandising (Former Employee) –  Northridge, CANovember 21, 2017
Taught several level of courses within the Family Consumer Sciences department. The experience was very rewarding, prepping for the courses, lectures and projects were created to be relevant to present day challenges. Time management is key, to balance, student work, class prep, and guest speakers. This made my job fun and it was nice to see that student's benefited from the team projects, field trips, and assignments.
Pros
Flexible time throughout summer and holidays
Cons
Classe schedule were fixed. Classes were not guaranteed every semester
