University of Memphis is a great place to work but as far as career progression you will get stuck here while others unqualified advance. Good benefits and great atmosphere just lacking in career advancement and management.
My time as a graduate student and counseling intern at the University of Memphis has provided me with several opportunities within the community to learn about a variety of counseling theories and techniques. In addition, the program's relationships with practicing professionals in the area has greatly added to my professional development.
Worked as a secretarial assistant on work-study for a department in my university. Co-workers were staff members and other college work-study participants; most of the time very friendly, though occasionally drama could seep through. Management varied depending on shift; some were good, some were occasionally inconsistent. My favourite part of the job was getting to know and help the students and tutors who came through.
A typical day at work at the University of Memphis Annual Giving Department included myself and about ten others making phone calls the alumni database. We updated alumni on current events and encouraged them to donate to the school. The hardest part of my job was asking people to donate large amounts of money. The most enjoyable part was talking to interesting people on the phone.
Busy but productive, great teams, and colleagues. I learned how to process undergraduate applications, data entry, scan, provide customer service, use Banner and Matrix. Management believes in showing appreciation on a regular basis.
