Busy and productive workplace
Financial Aid Assistant (Current Employee) – Wasilla, AK – May 19, 2015
A typical day in my job is a lot of scanning, filing, communication between Financial Aid Officers, and a lot of tedious chores. I did not think coming into this job that I would learn anything, but I have. I have learned several computer software programs and now use them efficiently, my communication skills are much better, and I have learned how the financial aid department runs within a school. I do not manage anyone, but everyone manages me. If there is a task within the office, I do it. My coworkers are friendly and always professional. Even though I am new, they always include me and make sure I am well informed of what is going on around the office. The hardest part of my job is prioritizing. I would like to be able to get everything done all in one day, but most days that is impossible. I have to take a step back and make myself a list of what needs done now and what can be done later. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to receive instruction and guidance from such well educated and kind people. I always enjoy when I can be mentored by somebody with more knowledge that I have.
