Executive Assistant to Partner (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – January 31, 2013
Pros: extremely interesting, fast-paced work
Cons: i knew, from the start, that my boss was moving and the position was temporary.
I worked, originally as a temp, then as a contract employee for Egon Zehnder. Stevens Little was the temp agency who placed me in the position.
Zehnder is a placement firm for C-level executives around the world. We tracked jobs and candidates and arranged meetings around the world and video conferences with parties around the world to match outstanding – more... candidates with open positions. I scheduled a great deal of international travel and maintained an extremely busy calendar for the partner I supported. I left the firm when the partner was transferred to Houston to open a new office. – less
Student Researcher (Former Employee), Stevens-Point, WI – May 29, 2012
Cons: lack of co-workers
I was allowed to make my own hours, so a typical day of work included me coming in to the lab, preparing my reaction, and photographing the results. I learned how to utilize various lab equipment and what the purpose of the equipment was. It was an individual research project, so there was no management or co-workers. Occasionally I would collaborate – more... with a few other students, but only when it was necessary. The hardest part of the job was deciphering when something went wrong and what to do about it, as no one else was there to help me. The most enjoyable part of the job was the amount of independence I was given. – less
