Desk Assistant (Current Employee), New Orleans, LA – April 20, 2013
Pros: learnt how to shelf the books.
Cons: it was a hard job. shelving was difficult.
I was a library student worker at the Earl K. Long Library. My main work was to help the library users help to find them with the books they were looking for. If they had a proper code for the book, I would go to the shelf and find it. If not I would look for the code, and help them. Also, I shelved the books according to the standard shelving criteria – more... of the library. – less

On a typical day at work I would have to communicate with customers, go out recruit abroad and nationally, evaluate applications, take decisions based on those evaluations, award scholarships, and plan recruitment trips and events.

Student Researcher (Former Employee), New Orleans, LA – July 8, 2012
As a student researcher I got a lot of experience, however I didn't see how the administration was outside of this narrow field. In my department we were well managed, although there wasn't any jobs available above my research level upon graduation.
