Defensive Line Coach /Student Teacher (Former Employee), Milton, PA – May 28, 2014
Between coaching a collegiate football team and earning a teaching certification there was a lot of work to be done. I succeeded in my preparation for both, and believe that I have benefited greatly from the experience.
Amazing boss, worked with other students, event planning
Susquehanna University Admissions Intern (Former Employee), Selinsgrove, PA – May 30, 2013
Pros: received credit
A typical day in the office, I would be setting up overnight visits for prospective students. I would contact professors, coaches, and clubs in which the student expressed interest. I would then set up an itinerary for the prospect and find a current student at the university to host him or her. I was also responsible for assisting with the planning – more... of Accepted Students Day, a huge event for all accepted students. My main role as an admissions intern was to maintain the social media sites for the Admissions Office and Class of 2017 Facebook page. Through my roles as an intern, I learned how to manage my time. Sometimes, I would have to plan three overnight visits for the same date, among other planning for Accepted Students Day. There were three other interns, all working on separate projects. Each intern was as helpful and hardworking as my boss. We had a lot of freedom with the internship, but my boss was always in the office to help when necessary. The hardest part of the internship was making sure things were done on time. There were some last minute cancellations, which was stressful when I had to change an itinerary last minute. The most enjoyable part of the internship was working with students. As a junior and senior in high school, I was scared of what college life was about, so I tried to portray the best experiences to the incoming students interested in the university. – less
Lifeguard (Former Employee), Selinsgrove, PA – July 29, 2012
The best part at this job is that we get full access to the recreation center. This was my first job. Management was great and the pay was not too bad for it just being for the summer and winter. I heard it changed now because the manager I has is now gone to a bigger school to manage the aquatics there. Best part was dealing with the kids during swim – more... team practice. The kids are funny but during the day the usual elderly ladies would come in and do floating laps with floating devices. They were hilarious and always making jokes. Hardest part was the training to get my certification because there is about 30 hours of training 20 of the 30 was all physical. for example, swimming 500yds a day for a week and treading water for 5 mins and also the 10+ feet deep water retrievals right after all those other things. If you are in good physical shape being a lifeguard should be a great job for you. – less
