Fairly relaxed and interesting work environment
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) – Durham, NH – December 16, 2016
Working as a Graduate Assistant there is no typical day really, although there are many typical tasks. Mostly I dealt with preparing, proctoring and grading tests as well as some grading of blogs and other minor assignments. Besides doing this work for the students, there was also plenty of research the professors needed doing as well. Thus this job was good opportunity to learn how to multi-task and handle several different kinds of work assignments. Some semesters I was working for 4 different professors, each of whom had fairly different needs and tasks for me. Dealing with students was also very important, in terms of respecting their privacy but also providing them with the right amount of help and support. I was fortunate enough to get in the classroom somewhat to help one of my professors. Overall it was a very good job and helped me improve a variety of skills, especially related to using Microsoft Office and other computer programs/online resources.
