Tennis Team Coach (Current Employee) – Durham, NH – April 25, 2017
This will feel like no work at all if this is your only position but adding this on top of your full time job is a lot on your plate. It's on average a 10-12 hours a week commitment plus at least a tournament a month that is a full day.
Summer Intern (Former Employee) – Durha – April 24, 2017
This was an unpaid summer internship. I was able to learn a lot from my mentors and will forever be grateful for the opportunity. I was able to assist in research and learn more about other individuals research in the lab.
Bus Boy (Former Employee) – Durham, NH – March 1, 2017
Working at the New England center was a good first job to have, but since the people in control of the restaurant's operation were part of the University of New Hampshire and didn't actually work at the restaurant themselves management could come off as a little impersonal. Especially since any changes that were made were rarely discussed with anyone but the highest echelon of the staff members.
Information Technology Specialist III (Current Employee) – Concord, NH – February 27, 2017
This place is an all around a great place to work at. VERY nice benefit package and good reimbursement for the work requirements. Good work to life balance and overall very pleasant people to interact with.
Essentially, this job paid a stipend for graduate students to teach basic English, rhetoric, academic research, and composition. It gave me what I needed to live so that I might pursue my MFA and achieve my publishing ambitions. I was encouraged to explore and refine my pedagogical style. There's a very supportive staff, and the department allows for the exchange of new innovative approaches to teaching fundamental reading and writing skills to undergraduate students.
Free Lunch at staff meetings. Personal Office. Great opportunity to teach/learn.
I was an intern here, so the compensation was not part of the program. The internship is well structured, and well run. The preceptors I had were all fantastic. I was able to experience all different areas of nutrition to help me explore the field.
Good place to learn about potential career fields and have a chance to work in them.
Field Technician - Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Durham, NH – February 10, 2017
Typical day at work involved running samples through various machinery after collecting it from field sites. There was a lot of traveling and improvisation required, never a dull moment. The hardest part of the job and the most enjoyable are one in the same, the environment is always changing and requires you to adapt as well as gives you the opportunity to try new things on a regular basis.
Relatively stress free environment, decent benefits/pay and fair treatment of employees.
Long days of field work in less than ideal weather conditions.
Greatly enjoyed my time as a TA and was able to gain valuable experience. I wish more students came to my office hours for help, so that I could teach them and myself. The hours worked great with my schedule and the department was very accommodating.
As a graduate student, the best part of the job is the enrichment acquired through classes and eventually the research one works on within our fields of study. Being a graduate student itself is difficult when trying to balance life outside of work. However difficult the journey, it is worth the experience in the end.
Post-doctoral Research Fellow (Current Employee) – Durham, NH – January 3, 2017
Here are many nice people, but the environment is less productive than industry. Many students and faculty members are just confined in their small circle. Few people actively connect to others, or collaborate to work
If you doubled state support for UNH tomorrow it would still be the least state supported university in the nation, by a lot. This often translates into job insecurity, and all the challenges associated with running on a shoestring budget.
Strong emphasis on work life balance is strong, but this can sometimes translate into working with less dedicated teammates.
Great leadership, from faculty all the up the administration.
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.
