Administrative Assistant II (Human Resources) (Current Employee) – May, ID – February 8, 2017

Office Assistant for PTE Instruction (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – January 3, 2017
Made sure classrooms printers, office printers had paper, worked on excel, filed confidential paperwork Learned more about excel before starting class. The hardest of the job is to make sure I understood what was being taught in the job. I had to sometimes asked more times of what had to be done. The most enjoyable was to learn new things that I did not know before. Learned new things on excel and word that I did not before I started classes on word and excel. Had new ideas given to me that I did not have before.
Liked to just be there and help when I could
Did not last to long. It was on the college semester each year.
MEDIA PRODUCTION ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – December 20, 2016
This was a great work place. Even though my contract with them expired after I finished my schooling there, it was great to work not only with my supervisor on media projects, but other organizations and other groups to help create a sense of connection within the school. I learned a lot of what it really takes to be in the media/production/graphic design field of work and what it really means.
The management was great, I was always given enough to do and the side projects I managed myself increased my capacity to start, work and finish projects completely by myself. I didn't really have other co workers, but the one that I can consider was a co worker worked well with me and we were able to learn from each other's strengths and weaknesses.
The hardest part of the job was when I would try certain tasks in software such as Adobe and it wouldn't work. That would push back deadlines quite a bit. The most enjoyable part of my work was being able to use graphic design, photography and videography all in one job.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Nampa, ID – May 24, 2016
Overall, a good school. Awaiting accreditation. This should happen in 2016. The courses I teach have been discontinued because this college is under the umbrella of College of Southern Idaho. The College of Southern Idaho has made the decision to discontinue these courses. 5 instructors will be out of a job beginning this summer.
Chemistry Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Nampa, Id – May 27, 2015
I was in charge of setting up labs for the physics department and keeping an updated inventory. My co-workers were good people and fun to be around. My supervisor knew a lot about the job and she taught me a lot.
While working at CWI, in the Writing Center; I learned about people and their lives. Every persons needs are different and everyone has needs to be met. Daily I would clock in and remain available to all students and non students that walked in. I would assist them in -scheduling appointments -getting setup with the scheduling system. -general guidance. -registering for classes -navigating the website and Blackboard. The main source for CWI's classes. -applying for Financial Aid -assist with resume building -lend an ear and a helping hand
I work as an adjunct faculty so supervision is minimally required. Other faculty are professional and kindly. I enjoy teaching, student interaction and contributing to the field of academics and plan to continue my academic career for as long as possible.
The downfalls as an adjunct include no insurance, no advancement, and unpredictable job security.
Data Entry/Work (Former Employee) – Nampa, ID – May 1, 2013
A typical day of work was 9am to 5pm. I would print, copy, and mail over 300 letters a day, operate data bases like Janzabar and Datatell, and audit paperwork. The management was the Enrollment Specialists, and they were great and efficient. My coworkers were patient and provided great customer service to all the student at the College of Western Idaho. I enjoyed every aspect of this job.
Learned new skills, hour long lunches, and fun events to attend
