Water Polo Coach assistant (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNJune 30, 2015
Being able to pass my experience in Water Polo to college girls who are starting in this sport, was an amazing experience where I surprisingly learn more than I taught.
Bringing in my memories a lot of good Water Polo lesson and life lesson.
The fact that me and the team were very close in age made it really challenging to earn the respect of the team as a coach.
But the Incredible team I worked with and the very understanding boss I had, made the season pass so quick that did not even feel like work.
Pros
Traveling
Cons
Challenging

Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNApril 22, 2015
Macalester College is a healthy welcoming environment. My hours were flexible and the management allowed me the flexibility to perform my job without micro-managing. My co-workers were all friendly and mature. A typical day was to go in to the office and work on the project I was hired to do. I learned new software with ease and there wasn't anything difficult. The hardest part of the job was knowing it was a temporary assignment and that I'd have to leave when my project was completed.
Pros
healthy environment, great co-workers and management/supervisors
Cons
temporary assignment

Macalester College Review
Academic Computing Consultant (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MinnesotaNovember 2, 2012
My primary objective was to create a help desk for faculty, staff and students that did not exist before I was hired…slowly but surely over time, because funding was necessary.

I made a proposal outlining the cost of a server and help desk specific software, employee costs and requirements. Employees and I logged problems and solutions creating a very useful database.

I also created a budget to add two student labs and upgrade three existing labs. I selected the systems; created the system images for both PC-compatible and Macintosh systems; installed the switch; ran the Cat. cables; ensured adequate power, even selected the furniture. Everything was up and running in nine months.

I managed and grew the help desk and support mechanisms for four years at Macalester College,
Pros
supportive management, great benefits, laptop provided for work from home, cell phone
