Pros: sometimes small rewards for success, flexible hours, friendly manager/supervisors
Cons: boring, part time w/ no benefits
typical day involves sitting at a cubicle calling alumni, parents, and friends of the university to share information and ask for donations. The co-workers are mostly unviersity students. The most enjoyable part of the job is succeeding to get a donation or having an enjoyable conversation with a knowledgeable alumni. The hardest part is asking the required number of times for a contribution. I feel like I have learned how to talk on the phone better and a bit about persuading people.
