Working at different places lead me to develop professionally. Overall, It was really fun and a good learning experience.
student worker (Former Employee) – SIUE dining services – June 4, 2013
I volunteered at Microbe Inotech Laboratories (MIL) where I conducted tests like Gram staining technique, handled Biolog Microlog, metabolic characterization system and prepared nutrient agar petri plates. Apart from this, I also did implant training at Torrent pharmaceuticals and Intas Biopharmaceuticals in India where I learned about techniques such as Gel Electrophoresis, Chromatography techniques, Sonication, Robotic Liquid Handling System used for performing Bradford Assay. Working in such corporate environment definitely boosted my confidence levels in performing various biological assays and helped me to gain knowledge in the field of Biotechnology. It also helped me to experience the corporate culture which will be helpful for me to adjust myself in such an environment in future.
On campus Work Experience:
I worked at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville (SIUE) dining services. It was really good learning experience working at SIUE dining services. Working here helped me to interact with various people who worked with me. Sometimes, during the absence of my Supervisor, I had to undertake her role and responsibilities. Working under such situations definitely helped me to improve my management skills. Also, by interacting with my co-workers and supervisors helped me to improve my speaking abilities.
