Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee), Camden, NJJuly 15, 2015
Pros: I got extra time to work on my own projects.
Cons: I was not paid.
I was a teacher's assistant at Rutgers University. If students had questions that even the professors couldn't answer, I was on it. The students liked me because I was easy to talk to and explained the curriculum better when the professor seemed to be speaking another language.

Building Manager
Building Manager (Former Employee), Camden, NJJuly 10, 2015
Working at Rutgers Campus Center was a great experience. I was able to adapt to different types of situations to assist the clients needs in our building. Being able to see the happiest and satisfaction in our clients was always the highlight of working. The building ran very smoothly with the supervision of our management and also with the contribution that all my coworkers put out. The atmosphere had a relaxed feeling while working with everyone knowing that work is always needed to be done. The hardest part working at the campus center would have been when a problem came up and we were unable to fix the situation because of factors that were out of our limits, such as internal technical issues. I always enjoyed going to work because I enjoyed being around my coworkers and also being able to help others that come into our building.

Relaxed work environment with flexible hours.
Undergraduate Research Assistant (Former Employee), New Brunswick, NJJuly 5, 2015
The environment of this job was very relaxed, and everyone there was helpful and nice. I was able to have flexible hours around times of exams. It taught me about lab management, as well as how to work with others. The most enjoyable part about the job was everyone's willingness to teach me new things and how I was encouraged to take on tasks I wouldn't normally think to take charge on. The hardest part of the job was only at the beginning, when I was learning to balance a new school environment, work, and my classes all at the same time.

Great opportunity to teach students not in a STEM major.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Newark, NJJune 1, 2015
Pros: Refreshed my memory on basic things I learned years prior to teaching the lab.
Cons: Too many technical difficulties with the on-hand learning portion of the lab, due to lack of budget.
A typical day at work as a teaching assistant for the lab portion of a Environmental Geology course, would entail in a small lesson on the background of the lab. Being that this lab is a self taught based, it was my job to aid the students having a hard time understanding and completing the lab. Throughout the time that I was at this job, I was able to understand that students will only care about the lesson if you take the time to prove just how relatable it is to them. Whenever it came to a difficult situation that occurred to another teaching assistant, or a relatively common issue that came up in more then once section; management addressed it to the other teaching assistants in a weekly meeting, and as a group we came up with a solution to resolve the issue. Co-workers did a wonderful job in communicating with each other if need be. The hardest part of the job is to see a student truly not care about the course, and I couldn't persuade them the importance of understanding the basics of Earth. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I was able to aid students who didn't understand the course material to the point where they were so interested in the lab that they scored really well in the written portion of the lab.
