Pros: access to musical, literary, academic events
Cons: limited vacation time
Nice to be part of an academic environment and enjoy the perks of access to discounted evening classes. Writing, editing, and producing seasonal newsletter. Inputting text for the weekly service pamphlet. Meeting and interviewing people of interest for the newsletter was the best part of the job. Quick turnaround for weekly service pamphlets and other – more... orders of service with accuracy a priority made for some stressful occasions, but nothing that couldn't be handled, and always produced a feeling of satisfaction in a job well done. – less
