Crossing Guard (Former Employee) – Evanston, IL – April 8, 2016
Providing a safe crossing place for the families and there kids. Learned how to pay more attention to my keen senses. Listening out for cars, trucks, etc. Hardest part was sometimes having to deal with rude and uncanny people. Best of it all was seeing happy kids and satisfied parents.
Public Works Summer Intern (Former Employee) – Evanston, IL – May 6, 2015
A typical at the City of Evanston was answering phones, helping Evanston residents with any questions or concerns. I learned about my community and how to work Microsoft excel. Since this is the City of Evanston with many departments, as far as management I can only speak from the department I was exposed to. Management was organized and supervisors were easy to get along with. They always kept me busy, and presented me with new projects on a day-to-day basis. Everyone at the Civic Center were friendly individuals. Whether they were a field worker or an office assistant, everyone was open-minded and created a laid back environment. The most difficult part of my job was when I was given work, with minimal directions or none at. Dealing with residents who were hostile was a challenge, but then I'd transfer them to higher authority. I enjoyed days working with the Cit of Evanston. It was very mellow, and interacting with my co-workers was the most enjoyable part.

Juvenile Drug Court Case Manager (Former Employee) – Evanston, WY – July 25, 2014
A typical day working as a juvenile case manager was keeping track of each of my clients day to day activities, working with probation officers, school resource officers, treatment teams, and parents to assist each individual in progressing successfully through the program.

Enjoyed working with juveniles and working with the team members.
Contract was not renewed so I was no longer able to do my job.
Camp & Afterschool Counselor (Former Employee) – Evanston, IL – October 5, 2013
The day usually started at 8:00 am, the kids usually would arrive at 8:30-9:00. As they arrived they would go in the gym after their parents signed them in, they would play with the other kids they were already there. At about 9:30 or so we would do the morning verse and exercises. Then there would be some thing educational for the kids to do or we would get ready to go on the field trip that was planned for the day. I learned to handle multiple children at once, even though I had another person helping me. My co-workers were good to work with didn't have any problems with anyone. Hardest part would have been when I was left alone with the group alone and the would get completely out of control. The most enjoyable part of my job was being around the kids and having fun.
Lakefront Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Evanston, IL – April 11, 2012
A community of young adults working together and supervising each other everyday. We basically got paid to get tan unless we were actively on duty in the lifeguarding chair. We were always ready to respond, but it was a relaxed job environment.
working with other young people/friends/classmates, easy job unless an emergency situation arose
always in the sun, popularity effected harshness from supervisors
