It was a great experience having a journalism internship. I was able to write stories and have them published in various newspapers throughout the state of Michigan.

Facilities Maintenance Worker (Former Employee), East Lansing, MI – March 20, 2013
It's a college job that pays for expenses that come up. Management is awful at Spartan Village, but the students make it enjoyable. They hire student managers from other MSU places. They don't make a good fit and it doesn't work.
Research Assistant - PhD Student (Current Employee), East Lansing, MI – March 19, 2013
MSU department of ECE is not very well-known from its ranking but if you are a stimulated student there are a great selection areas to work in with top world researchers on them in engineering, math, economy, biology, etc. If you are not that much into work, that's fine you can relax for some time, go on a trip or something. I prefer a normal unpressurized – more... environment and I think it might be even more productive. – less
Research Technician (Current Employee), East Lansing, MI – March 3, 2013
Pros: opportunity to learn
A typical workday requires a great deal of time spent at the lab bench, along with collaboration of data and making future plans. I am managed by two immediate supervisors. The hardest part of my job is spending long hours in a lab working alone, but the rewards of the results always outweigh the negatives. The most enjoyable part is discussing results – more... and collaborating with tenured scientists in the field. – less
Student Labor Assistant (Former Employee), East Lansing, MI – February 20, 2013
Pros: flexible to work around my class schedule
-I helped to maintain the dorms on Michigan State University’s campus. I was expected to be able to perform my duties in a timely manner, correctly, and without supervision. I helped move and set up furniture, paint the dorms, clean hallways and clean rooms.
-For this position, I learned the importance of both team work and the ability to reach set – more... goals by working hard. I also learned the responsibility of being trusted to do tasks on my own. In this position, I learned skills quickly and how to do them well in order to perform them efficiently and in a timely fashion.
-My co-workers were other students from all backgrounds and I liked them very much.
-The hardest part of my job was the late nights and weird schedules that had to get worked in around my classes
-The most enjoyable part of my job was the people I worked with – less
