Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – January 6, 2016
A typical day at work consists of checking appointments and notifying my supervisors. After that is done, I make sure that voice messages and emails are answered. In addition, I welcome students as they come in for their appointments with their assigned advisors. On a regular basis I have two appointments per hour with students. These appointments can be change of major appointments which require me to complete and submit all the paperwork so students can change their major. My responsibilities also include to aid students with any questions they may have in regards to schedules, graduation, classes, etc. I have learned to work with diverse populations, understand people's concerns, and open my mind to different scenarios. I have acquired great organizational and management skills in order to keep the office running smoothly, and help students as much as I can. The hardest part of my job is telling students that their graduation plans are not going to go as they have planned, however, I work really hard to try to work with their graduation plan as much as I can. The most enjoyable part of my job is changing students' majors and experiencing the joy they feel as they transition into a major that they enjoy.
Interaction with students, flexible schedules
