Place where you can gain knowledge with lots of fun
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee), Manhattan, KSJanuary 8, 2013
Gained extensive knowledge and hands on experience in extrusion processing, sensory analysis, food chemistry and milling. It was fun working with people at various levels of experience and from different cultures. Apart from sharing knowledge, this helped me to improve my communication as well as people skills. The most challenging part was to balance the work life schedule with job, research and classes to actively participate in various clubs and community services. And this was the fun part too participating in various departmental and club activities with all my friends.

Learned while teaching
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Manhattan, KSSeptember 28, 2012
Pros: learnt a lot
It was a good learning experience which taught me to gain confidence in myself . Designing a course on my own had its own challenges. The good thing about a teaching job is instant feedback. I have always liked interacting with people as a result teaching was a fun experience. Teaching also helped me improve the impact factor of my Powerpoint slides. GTA experience does imply a lot of juggling between my own course load and lecture preparation for classes I had to teach. I had 130 students and more in the sections I taught and since that meant a lot of grading that I had to do, time management is a skill that came in handy.

BEST JOB I HAVE EVER HAD!!!

Pros: great atmosphere, flexible schedule
Being an office coordinator for any department is fun, easy and enjoyable. If you are currently a student at Kansas State and need a part-time job for about 20-25 hours a week ... ask for this position in ANY department. They are needed every semester and they will be flexible around you school schedule.
