Graduate Research Assistant/Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Ithaca, NY – March 3, 2016
As a graduate researcher and teaching assistant, my days were full of researching and teaching which made for busy days but taught me a wide variety of skills for success. The flexible hours allowed me time to pursue roller derby which in turn taught me another set of skills I didn't get from graduate school. My co-workers were all very nice and a joy to work with and my advisor was very nice and understanding towards me, although I could have used more interaction and guidance from her or another postdoc which I think was the hardest part of the job. I did very much enjoy discovering or generating new pieces of data especially if they were surprising.
