A typical day
Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer (Current Employee), Fargo, NDFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: the satisfaction of helping injured athletes, free sporting events
Cons: long hours, not very good salary
A typical day for me starts off my going to class to learn about advanced sports medicine techniques, modalities, manual therapy, orthopedic appliances, or diagnostic ultrasound.
Then I would head over to the Athletic Training room to cover Track & Field practice in the fall and Soccer practice in the spring.
After practice and lift are done for the day, I go home and work on some homework.
I would say the hardest part of my job is time management, but being in graduate school and working full time, being a full time student, and writing a thesis has helped my organization and time management skills. It has helped me not procrastinate as much and get things done when you can.
The best part of my job is seeing the realization on the athletes faces after they know they are finally 100% after a debilitating injury.

Progressive institution- want to be a part of the Herd.
Fargo, ND-Graduate Researcher (Former Employee), Fargo, North DakotaMarch 24, 2014
Pros: internationally progressive and great if your not a u.s. citizen
Cons: nepotism and a heightened culture of micro-management
You need to have patience, as you will need to accommodate international students. If you are an American, you take the back seat in most funding opportunities. You also have to take care of social interactions for your international co-workers, as they typically have no concept of independent work or social understanding. Getting commitments from international co-workers to complete jobs in an efficient and timely manner is difficult, but they do know how to perform mathematics. Returning home after a -15 degree day is the most enjoyable part of the job.

Great place to work to learn crop protection and Extension
Area Extension Specialist/Crop Protection (Former Employee), Carrington, NDFebruary 17, 2014
Pros: health benefits
Days involved gathering data, preparing the data in an audience-friendly manner, and presenting the data to the local agriculture dealers and farmers. I learned how to use my degree of research and apply it to real examples farmers were facing. My co-workers were helpful and pleasant to work with in the office. At times, I had difficulty asking for help because I was new to the area. However, I took pride and pleasure helping out the farming community.
