Outreach Coordinator K-12 (Current Employee), INMay 15, 2013
As an employee of Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, I have gained extensive knowledge of campus life as well as professional tools to help me perform my designated duties assigned to my current position. I have and continue to learn the importance of networking, development of engaging in the learning process through watching my colleagues – more... in their chosen career. Positive interpersonal professional relationships are a non-negotiable concerning maintaining a positive work environment. I love the work that I do because it empowers students with knowledge to pursue their dreams of completing the academic program of their choice. I thrive in high stress situations and problem solve should problems occur within any givin situation. I have learned that individuals respect and respond to the law of reciprocity in terms of being kind and clear when communicating as well as providing resources when needed. – less

Student Admissions Representative (Current Employee), Fort Wayne, INApril 14, 2013
Helping prospective students stay informed and give them an insight on what we offer here at IPFW. I learned how to work with others, lead a group of people on the right path, to be a leader, time management and overall how to be an inspiring role model. Management is ran pretty organized, there is usually never a misleading view on whats expected. – more... My co-workers are awesome! We all work so well together, thanks to our management team and coordinators. Hardest part of my job would have to be hearing a student choose a different school. Enjoyable part is giving tours and being a reason why a person decided to come to IPFW. – less

Flexible and Understanding
Desk Assistant - McNutt Residence Center (Former Employee), Bloomington, INFebruary 24, 2013
Working on a college campus is extremely different from "real world" scenarios but it was a wonderful experience nonetheless. When you work around people who are closer to you in age, it makes the environment more laid back and comforting. Working for IU is a lasting experience. You meet new people, learn how to deal with difficult ones, and make yourself – more... a better person in the process. – less

Great work environment

Pros: self rewarding experiences

I thoroughly enjoyed supporting and improving student life at Indiana University, Bloomington.

The hardest but most rewarding function of the job is to know that the students are their for a season and "good-bye's" are certain.

Thought provoking and beautiful environment coupled with some of the best minds in their fields
Associate Instructor (Former Employee), School of EducationNovember 7, 2012
Pros: beautiful and engaging environment
My typical day involved coaching students on academic probation in college success skills. I learned how communicate information in various ways, and how to encourage students to try new techniques of things they had been for years.

Management and coworkers were very friendly and encouraging.

The hardest part of my job was enforcing policy on students – more... I knew could succeed. While the most enjoyable was seeing students succeed and continue that success through graduation. – less

The thing I liked most about working at IU was that there really wasn't "a typical day".
Financial and Administrative Services (Former Employee), Bloomington, INNovember 4, 2012
Pros: great people, wonderful opportunity
I learned there is always more than one right answer, there is a time for deep analysis and a time when one must just be brave enough to make a plan and lead the charge (even if you aren't 100% sure), that clear communication is vital and that sometimes you win--even if you aren't the best, by just working harder than the other guy. And sometimes you – more... lose for reasons you might never know. The key is to keep trying.

I loved working for IU. There were times more difficult than others but they hired me as a secretary when I was a single 20 year old mother with nothing but a high school diploma and a desire to give my son a better life. They believed in me, promoted me, encouraged me, and allowed me to turn myself into a successful professional with 2 degrees + graduate hours and the opportunity to work on projects I'm sure I never would have been exposed to in the private sector.

It is a very political environment (but where isn't these days) yet I made friends for life and had the opportunity to meet/work with many individuals that have had a great influence on our lives and times. Thank you, IU, for helping me become who I am today. – less
