this is one of my part time jobs when i was in college. Entering data could be boring for many people, but i found a way to have fun out of it: looking for the different numbers of some sheets.

Graduate Assistant while obtaining a MBA
Graduate Assistant & Consultant (Former Employee), Potsdam, NYSeptember 4, 2014
Most of my work was research and data mining. I was directed by a wonderful professor at the School of Business at Clarkson University. I also assisted with in-class activities and research assignments. The hardest part of the position was imputing data for the Professors research and the best part was working closely with the professor of strategy. I was fortunate enough to learn a lot from her through one on one interaction.

Clarkson is a great institution - the biology program I was part of was small, but energetic!
Assistant Professor of Biology (Former Employee), Potsdam, NYMay 8, 2014
Pros: great colleagues, great students, beautifuls etting
Cons: lack of resources for the biology department
Clarkson is a gem. A great place for students and faculty to interact to acheive the highest educational experience possible. I had wonderful colleagues there, great students, and a great experience.

The hardest part of the job was that our department (Biology) was small and did not have access to equipment funds needed to bring the students experiences in state of the art analyses. That said, we did a fine job, and students had great educational and critical skill development experiences!

Great place to work
Chemical Research Technician (Current Employee), Potsdam, NYApril 16, 2014
Clarkson is a great place to work! The university is small so it has a community feel to it. The downside of working here is really the surrounding area. There's nothing around except farm land and barns that have half fallen down. I love my job, the flexibility, and the university community. I hate living in Potsdam.

Excellent experience at an esteemed University
Psychology Teaching Assistant and Grader (Former Employee), Potsdam, NYApril 20, 2012
Proctored exam and quizzes to students, then collected test material to be graded.
Grading was done over a two day period, three days on the weekend.
The courses that I graded and TA'd for were Introduction to Psychology, Human Sexuality, and The Psychology of Psychoactive drugs. This helped me stay current with new information in the fields and led me to self teach new material to myself.
My management was very professional and "people-based." My manager cared about my well-being in a genuine manner and always accommodated my work schedule around my own examinations and research articles.
The hardest part of my job was not annoying my friends about how excited I was to be working at the University with students.
I enjoyed literally every aspect of my position while at Clarkson, and this extended to my student life as well.
