Undergraduate Student Worker (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAMarch 23, 2015
Pros: great atmoshphere
Cons: student worker job
A typical day at work for me I answer phone calls from people with question of testing at our testing center or other centers in the city. There are often professor cooming to pick up and drop off exams they've administer in their classrooms. What I learn at my job it better to communicate the right information, we have students that come to our office with incorrect information making it harder to assist the student. I'm learning to communicate with other offices on campus to assure they have the correct information to give to their students.
