Advanced Mathematics Tutor (Current Employee), Miami, FlJuly 27, 2015
Pros: Great experience for my major
Cons: Honestly no cons.
Since I am pursuing a mathematics major, tutoring at FIU has significantly helped me. I get to tackle math problems of all courses that are offered at the university. I benefit well because when I go to my classes I often utilize something that I helped someone with. I perform extremely well on my exams and I credit it to my supervisor who helps me when I need help in my upper level courses or students who need a simpler or broader explanation of the math concepts. My coworkers are amazing as well. They themselves tutor in different areas such as statistics, chemistry, physics, and writing. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you can honestly see the weight being removed from a student's shoulder who has been struggling with the material and they compliment you for being patient and helpful.

Events Coordinator Office Assistant (Current Employee), Miami, FLJune 15, 2015
In a typical day at work, I monitor, maintain, and supervise all events occurring to ensure the department is represented appropriately. I Insert events into our parking system, and scheduled staffing as needed. I Create operational plans and task lists for all events.

What I have learned in this position is how to lead by example and work with a staff. As a supervisor in the Events department, I've learned how to lead multiple personalities into reaching one common goal.

The most difficult part of my job has been relying on part time college students as our Events Staff. Sometimes college students do not have very flexible schedules.

The most enjoyable part about my job is acting as a liaison with other university departments’ event units to ensure the proper procedure is used when events are hosted and parking is needed.

Guest Services Assistant (Former Employee), Miami, FLMay 27, 2015
A typical day at work as a guest services assistant included answering various phone calls and transferring them to the proper department within the University. A typical day also included giving students, faculty and staff directions to various classroom locations and offices on campus.

My co-workers were all student staff so they were also my peers. It was cool to work on a job with my classmates. Management was resourceful, helpful and flexible when it came to working around our class schedule. The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with young adults / college students, and helping them find their way around campus. The hardest part was keeping up with all the phone calls and answering the challenging questions that some callers had.

I learned how to listen effectively to clients' requests, how to give accurate information, how to multitask and how to behave professionally as the center consultant of the University.
