Great place to work, excellent supervisor and fun team.
Pros: my supervisor and co-workers, benefits were excellent, loved my job!
Cons: stressful position but very satisfying
A typical day at work involved processing donor gifts, pulling reports, updating constituent records, preparing correspondence, providing queries, exports, reports, creating donor profiles, and other information for the team/chancellor/others. Updated solicitor actions, proposal statuses, and etc. I cared very deeply about my work and our team's goals – more... and was committed to working together as a team to meet our department goals.
What I learned: Working at Ivy Tech and in the Campaign & Development Department gave me an appreciation of the importance of providing the opportunity of a higher education for all students. It was very exciting to be a part of an educational institution that changes the lives of our students, their families, and the community in which they live!
Management: I loved working with my supervisor, my team, and the management, faculty, and staff of Ivy Tech. Very wonderful and committed group of people who give of their talent and skills to assist our students in excelling and making a better future for themselves and their families.
Co-Workers: I loved my co-workers! It was a fun place to work and we interacted very well together. There were people who were more challenging to work with but that's part of any work place. In situations such as this I would look for ways to discover what made them tick personality wise so that we could become an effective team.
The hardest part of the job: Many times I worked very long hours. You must be dedicated and willing to be flexible to meet deadlines.
The most enjoyable part of the job: I loved this position! It was very challenging but I enjoyed the knowledge that I have gained in working in an academic and fundraising environment, and in becoming very proficient in The Raiser's Edge (Blackbaud). – less
