Several transferable skills.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee), Jacksonville, ALMarch 11, 2015
Pros: free room, fast paced, team work, creative outlet, great management
Cons: very little pay, live where you work
I assisted in helping residents transition from living at home to living on their own. In addition to this, I was a sort of mentor for several of the residents, assisting in their day to day lives, with any questions regarding campus life or school they might have had. In addition to this, I conducted many health and safety checks, where I was making sure that the girls were living in a clean and healthy way that benefited their well-being. This was a job that involved a lot of teamwork, as any work was usually done in pairs. I also developed a lot of creative programs in order to educate the students, and to build a sense of community on the hall. I loved this job, but I am graduating soon, and am no longer going to be able to be employed with the university. However, a lot of this job is customer service, and it has taught me important skills such as communication, data entry, and others.

Resident Assistant (Former Employee), Jacksonville, ALFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: free housing
Cons: working where you live
Being an RA, it is hard to seperate work life and life as a regular college student. However, it is a very rewarding job that helped me grow as a person. I learned how to communicate with people who have difficult personalities. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping freshmen girls adapt to college life and seeing them grow into the person that they are.

Secretary III (Former Employee), Jacksonville, ALJanuary 11, 2015
Pros: great retirement system
Cons: limited vacation time in the summer months
Jacksonville State University was a great place to work. I worked with some of the finest staff and professors at the university. I especially loved the students. I was always interacting with student workers and students who used the testing program at the Center for Individualized Instruction. It was very rewarding to see students succeed and watch them graduate. The summers were especially busy with three semesters and summer groups and camps to schedule.

JSU
Learning Assistant (Former Employee), Jacksonville, ALDecember 30, 2014
Pros: coworkers and students
I typically worked with an average of 30 students every 6-8 weeks, assisting them with the graduation exam for JSU. The co-workers were great and part of a great team. There was no memorable hard part of the job. The most enjoyable aspect was telling students they passed the exam and could graduate from college.

Camp Instructor
Camp Assistant Instructor (Former Employee), Jacksonville, ALAugust 19, 2013
Worked as a baseball camp assistant instructor, teaching youth the fundamentals of baseball as well as teaching them teamwork and how to achieve goals both individually and collectively. This was not a full time job, in fact it only happened a few times in a couple years. As players we were chosen to work with the kids based on our baseball abilities as well as chosen by the coaches because of our interpersonal skills. The most enjoyable part of the job was inspiring young kids to have the same love for the game of baseball that I did. The hardest part is working with other people and different personalities, especially when those personalities are 6-13 years of age.

Resident Assistant (Former Employee), Jacksonville, AlabamaApril 24, 2013
I had learned to deal with multiple personalities in this position. As a college student, I came out of my comfort zone, and became the man I am today. I'm out of the box, a social person, and not afraid to speak in front of the people. I am a better leader because of this job.
