Easy going work environment that is perfect for a full time student. Enough downtime for the employee to work on homework while working. Also it gave the opportunity to engage in more student activities on campus.

A typical day consist of answering the phones and assisting students and parents with scheduling advising appointments. My first desk job.

Graduate Instructional Assistant (Current Employee) – San Marcos, TX – June 1, 2017
There is no typical day when dealing with undergraduate students. I could have 5 emails of 500 depending on the point in the semester. The faculty is very helpful and wants all of their assistants to succeed. They work diligently to make sure we are getting the most out of our experience. The work environmental can be stressful, but is fairly relaxed. The most difficult part of this job is knowing when to say no. Often times we can forget that we too are students as we become so consumed with the tasks that surround this job. I enjoy the camaraderie that is built between other assistants and professors in the office.
STUDENT INVOLVEMENT ASSOCIATE- ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) – San Marcos, TX – May 30, 2017
Texas State provides students with a great campus life and opportunity to grow in their desired field and interest. Working on campus all four years proved to be an overwhelmingly positive experience and truly helped me keep balanced in my school life and personal life.
Instructional Assistant of Biology (Former Employee) – San Marcos, TX – May 30, 2017
I was employed for the university while I was attending as Master's student. I was a TA for the Bio Department and I really enjoyed my time there. Most professors allowed me to create my own method of delivering the required lab materials and one even let me develop the curriculum for subsequent semesters. It is an incredibly self-driven position with little to no training, so be prepared to feel a little incompetent if you don't have any teaching background. Teaching undergrads definitely helped me become a better leader and communicator and helped me master the subjects I considered myself an expert in by forcing me to consider the underlying concepts and theories in ways that could delivered and understood by people with zero background in the respective subjects.
