Friendly and Productive Research Environment
Research Intern (Current Employee), Chapel Hill, NCJanuary 12, 2015
Pros: diverse lunch options nearby and many meetings, seminars, and events to attend.
A typical day was mostly spent on research, but departmental and lab meetings and seminars were very frequent. It is a great way to meet with colleagues while learning about cutting edge research. My co-workers were without exception some of the friendliest people I've encountered. As a researcher I was given relative freedom in my hours while still being expected to get a lot done.

Easy going and fun workplace inside the Bowman Grey Pool on UNC campus.
PADI SCUBA Instructor (Current Employee), Chapel Hill, NCJanuary 7, 2015
Pros: travel to key largo, florida twice per year.
Cons: long hours in the water at a time= cold!
A typical day at work for this job begins with a collaborative planning session with two other professional SCUBA instructors. We then get our equipment together and put it by poolside. The students come in and gather their equipment with our assistance and put things together for the water instruction. We then all enter the pool and proceed with SCUBA instruction for about an hour.
We begin at 3:30 and have 3 different sections (class periods) every Tuesday. We teach the sections back to back ending at 8:00 pm.
I really enjoy working with college students. They are optimistic and fun to teach and talk with.
The hardest part of the job is getting cold from being in the water for such a long time. The very best part of the job is traveling with the students to Key Largo, Florida for open water training at the end of each semester.

Very rewarding, but tough to see a long-term career here
Program Advisor (Current Employee), Chapel Hill, NCApril 8, 2014
My job at Carolina is incredibly rewarding. I've learned an incredible amount, developed great skills, and had the privilege to work with wonderful students for many years. Due to low salaries which are disparate across departments (and not many opportunities to move up), it's hard to see making this a long term situation.
