Brand New Sports Facility with Energetic Customers
Sports Assistant (Former Employee), Lake Forest, ILMay 20, 2013
Pros: flexibility of my class schedule and work schedule
Cons: reporting to work after a hard football practice and long class hours
Worked part time work study while interacting with students, faculty, and athletes. Learned how to manage my time while enrolled as a full time student, and improved my people skills. Hardest part of the job was being a student, an athlete, and staying focused on the objectives at hand. Most enjoyable part of the job was teaching students and community – more... members the correct ways and techniques of fitness and weight room equipment use. – less

Great place to work and develop professional skills
Resident Assistant (Current Employee), Lake Forest, ILMarch 8, 2013
Pros: leadership opportunities, meet lots of people
Cons: people approach you with their problems at all hours of the day, outside of the workplace
My job as a Resident Assistant (RA) at Lake Forest College was great--I acted as a paraprofessional tool for undergraduate students and coordinated programs that focused on diversity, substance abuse, personal development, and academic achievement. I worked with a team of three other RA's, all working under a Resident Director. The other part of my – more... job was to manage administrative tasks such as maintenance requests, room condition reports, and room change requests. The hardest part of my position is that people would approach me about issues with their room or living situation anywhere at any time of the day. That being said, the thing I most enjoyed about being a RA is that I get to meet a lot of people and it gave me valuable leadership and organizational skills. – less

Enjoyable team with a variety of fun and challenging tasks
Student Associate in College Library (Former Employee), Lake Forest, ILAugust 20, 2012
Pros: working our own hours during school
Cons: trying to keep everyone on task between meetings
Working on the "Lake Effect" project was nice in that for the most part we worked our own hours with the exception of a weekly meeting that we attended to touch base with each other. I enjoyed working with a small team of three students and two supervisors but also was happy when we were able to interact more with others: interviewing people for inclusion – more... in the archive, researching, and preparing and giving a presentation on our project at the college's Symposium. The most enjoyable part of the job was the research and interviews; the most difficult part of the job was transcribing the author's notes. – less
