Friendly and hard-working leadership
Scribe: Disability Resource/Education Service (Former Employee) – Urbana, IL – April 24, 2016
For this job I was responsible for writing down my notes for the law class I was in, and then later typing it into a professional well-formatted outline. I would then submit the outlines within two days so the student with a disability could have access to them.
During this job the most important thing I learned is how to successfully manage my time as I had to work an extra hour each day typing notes that other law students did not need to do. Also, this job improved my ability to pull out only useful information to transcribe onto paper as I wanted my peer to have the best notes possible.
The management was amazing. They were very organized, friendly, and understanding that I was also a law student who needed to get my studies done. Furthermore, the only co-worker I had was my manager who I sent the outlines to.
The hardest part was when law school papers were due. This required me to be highly organized so I could type up my outlines and still have time for my classwork and other activities.
The most enjoyable part was being able to see my finished outline. It was well-written and organized, something to take pride in as it was for another student. Also, hearing how grateful the staff was for my help in furthering their resources available to students with a learning disability.
The staff was always a pleasure to deal with.
Often had law school work to do as well
