A typical work day consists of answering student/parent/faculty questions about housing. I do this via email, phone and in-person and questions range from concerns about price to “what residence hall will fit me best.”
When I’m not working with concerned students and their parents, I spend much of my time proof-reading materials before they are sent out. We send out things such as pamphlets, contracts booklets, information guides, etc. and they have to be grammatically and factually correct, as well as visually appealing.
Finally, I process and verify newly admitted and returning student information and have created an effective filing system to keep them in order on a yearly basis.
While I love my coworkers and management team, I find that our office is over-staffed. I have repeatedly asked for more work and new projects, only to be told that there are no projects/work to give out.
I am seeking a job that is engaging and fun, but that will challenge me on a daily basis. Above all, I want to keep learning and honing my public relations, marketing and advertising skills.
Wonderful benefits, fun coworkers, positive learning environment
Office is overstaffed and there is little room for advancement.
