Busy dealing with students on a daily basis focusing on their financial aid.

The most enjoyable part of the job, was being able to get along with all employees. – less
Student (Summer Internship) (Former Employee), Washington, DC – April 10, 2013
WHEN I WORKED AT HOWARD UNIVERSITY I WAS A STUDENT IN AN UPWARD BOUND PROGRAM. I TOOK PRIOR GRADE COURSE CLASSES. THE MANAGEMENT WAS OUTSTANDING. MY PEERS WERE STUDENTS LIKE ME. THE HARDEST PART WAS TAKING ON ALL MY CLASS HOMEWORK AT ONCE. JUST THE OPPROTUNITY TO BE APART OF A WONDERFUL PROGRAM WAS THE MOST ENJOYABLE.

Even though I had wanted to get more interviews, I enjoyed the interviews I had and what I was writing on. I saw films that I was able to critique, and most didn't get into the paper, but it was fun to do.
Access Control Clerk/ Help Desk Specialist (Former Employee), Washington, DC – December 4, 2012
Pros: meeting new people
A typical day at work would be answering questions that were mostly job related but sometimes you would get a few that were totally out of your league. I learned patience and organization. I also learned some software applications. Management were mostly people who have been at the university for years and maybe went to college there. Co-workers were – more... depressed because of the bad moral and lack of employee trust and growth. The hardest part was the new rules that were implemented daily. It was hard to deal with the trial and error type of work that was created on a daily basis due to poor management. The most enjoyable part of this job was the students. Just watching them go after their goals made everything satisfying. – less

I normally get to the lab about 8am and i work until about 9pm. I have acquired skills in organic synthesis, characterizing compounds and thin films utilizing different techniques. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with my co-workers. They have definitely helped me become a better team worker and a better team leader. Being a graduate student – more... is a challenging experience but very rewarding. – less
