This was a position that fit my skills in every way. Working with the college students on a daily basis and the professors was great.
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJune 26, 2014
The days were long and busy, but the work was worth doing. Working with more than 600 students and 20 professors was a monumental task. Being the only administrative person for this office was sometimes overwhelming and challenging, but well worth the time and effort that went with it. The hardest part of the position was maintaining good rapport with the students.

Challenging and Fun
CHEMISTRY INSTRUCTOR (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAAugust 1, 2013
Pros: ability to make a positive impact on students' career and educational development.
Cons: wish i could teach there year-round, but there are no summer classes.
I have had the opportunity to teach general chemistry lecture (part 1) and general chemistry laboratory (parts 1 and 2). I have always loved to teach, so this is an ideal job for me. On a daily basis, I typically have a continuous flow of students in my office - some needing help with class, some needing career advice, some needing a letter of recommendation, and many just to say hello. This is one of the fave parts of my job.

Time-management and planning are critical to my job. I work hard to make sure I am providing my students with the most accurate and most current information. get to do teach and mentor bright young minds! I love it! I enjoy preparing the lectures and standing in front of the class. I almost feel like I'm on stage, because I infuse my humorous personality into everything I do.

I get along splendidly with my co-workers. Some, I still have yet to build a relationship, and sometimes that can be frustrating, because I begin to wonder if it's me that's hindering the bonding.

I think the hardest part of my job is the grading, not because it can be time-consuming, but because sometimes I have to give bad grades, and that saddens my heart because I feel like each student is my own child.

Pros: a sense of empowerment and making history
Cons: career growth opportunities political
The organization's strategy was institutionalized-it is permeate of the organization. Objectives, functional tactics, policies, and compensation represent only the start of the company's long-term strategy implementation. It was a pleasure in making a part of history come true for so many young women of America.
