Receptionist (Former Employee), Longview, WA – July 31, 2015
Pros: Filing, connecting with students and donors, organizing events, creating flyers, working with high spirited co-workers, learning new technology (STARS, Publisher, and how to run Outlook correctly)
Cons: Was only a temporary student job and some days were slow
Co-workers were great, I taught them and they taught me. Greatest experience being a Receptionist. I loved working on flyers to show my artistic capabilities. Mailing out over 100 mail packets, receiving mail and organizing them according to whom they were for, taking care of financial records also records of the donors, and looking at the obituary daily to record deceased donors or past donors. I organized an event called the Scholarship Social where the students and their donors get to meet. I organized it using Excel Spreadsheet and I would call the donors to get a head count and I would set up bibliographies of the students to show their donors what they have been doing throughout their college time. The hardest thing about working there was that I didn't work that many hours a day and sometimes I wouldn't have anything to do since I kept up on all of it.

The best part of my job was helping student and teachers with a problems. I really enjoyed finding solutions to problems that I didn't know the answer to right away and later coming up with a solution.
