Pros: positive work environment; friendly co-workers; enthusiastic students, staff, faculty, and community site supervisors
As an AmeriCorps living on a budget and pursuing my education, it was great to be surrounded by people in my office who supported me and encouraged me as a professional and an individuals. I communicate regularly with students, faculty, staff, and community site supervisors to ensure the best possible service learning experiences for MWCC's students. I also complete minor administrative tasks such as data entry and emailing. My supervisors are incredibly helpful and are always willing to answer questions. They're great with giving me the right amount of work and reasonable deadlines. The most enjoyable part of my day is communicating with so many different types of people. I enjoy doing presentations for students, sitting down with professors to discuss service learning, and meeting with community partner site supervisors to ensure that they're comfortable with the partnership.The hardest part of my job is accommodating the needs and wants of the students. I like to make sure that each student is satisfied with what the Center is offering them and they feel like they're being recognized as an individual and not just another number. Sometimes, I lose sight of the fact that every student is different is they deserve to be treated as such.
