A typical day in the Marketing Dept. at NMSU can involve many duties including but not limited to survey design and construction, human subject recruiting, survey/experiment proctoring, general office duties,etc.

Special Aid (Current Employee), Las Cruces, NM – June 11, 2014
I would encourage anyone who is a full time student to seriously consider employment at the college they go to. Management is very understanding of scheduling, and lenient so that school never takes the back burner. Generally friendly environment. However, there is not always much to do.

Communications, Outreach, Project Director, Web (Former Employee), Las Cruces, NM – January 22, 2014
Pros: many experiences
Cons: little security for staff
New Mexico State University is a great place to work in Las Cruces. Since I was staff, most of my work was grant funded. This had both a pro and a con, as funding changes had me changing positions and learning new roles. The downside of course in that situation is a lack of security.
I worked with students with disabilities, managed events, researched – more... for grants, and worked at the Arrowhead Entrepreneurial Institute in Business Planning – less
