Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – September 14, 2016
I loved being a research assistant at FIU. It pertained to my major so I picked up many useful skills while working there. My lab mates were amazing to work with. I loved conducting experiments and collecting data. I was able to pick the brains of graduated students and gain knowledge.
Access to study materials and located on my university campus.
Office Manager (Current Employee) – Miami,FL – September 1, 2016
I would highly recommend working at FIU, the benefits are great, it is a tight nit community, everyone knows each other. However, unless you have a master's or a PHD degree you will not make more than $35,000. So take advantage of the tuition waiver and get your degree while you work here.
Each day is a great opportunity to learn something new. Coworkers are willing to help with any issues and treat you as if you are part of their family. The most enjoyable part of working with Career Services is being a part of the great events the office offers to the students.
Research and learning at FIU is a great way to grow ones personal and professional skills. The hands-on and can-do approach allows for leadership roles and independent thought while allowing for accountability.

I loved the break room get gatherings for Cuban coffee in the morning and afternoon. FIU gave me all the tools to be successful and was very sensitive to some personal travel needs I had. Even as a consultant, FIU included me in all their events. There were holiday luncheons, quarterly progress meetings where I was treated as an employee.
Creative flexibility. Morning gatherings for coffee.
This job was available for students currently attending FIU. During my time there I was engaged with contacting persons to assemble interview sessions for articles I was assigned to write. I learned basic team management skills with fellow co-writers in the department. Communication among our team was a vital component that was necessary for arranging deadlines and for content that was consistently subject to change. The hardest part was trying to find necessary information before a deadline, especially when not being able to get in contact with someone to gather all the facts. I enjoyed the accomplishment of having the articles and photographs submitted and on time for publication. That brought me much satisfaction.
flexibility, writing for sections of preference, meeting others, gaining insight
