A very family like work environment with all the good and not so good parts of being in a family
Social Clinical Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Pittsboro, NC – January 26, 2016
While working for the University of North Carolina, I worked one on one with clients that were previously diagnosed with a variety of intellectual disabilities, specializing specifically with autism disorder. I got to know my co-workers and clients very well and even still, I maintain communication with them as often as I can. Working at the Carolina Living and Learning Center, I learned a great deal of what it means to be an individual and that just like any neurotypical thinking person, individuals with autism have specific needs, likes, dislikes, hobbies, fears, and passions just the same as any one else. It is just the details that we focus on that makes us individuals in the first place. The biggest challenge in being in this field of work would have to be the occasional violent outbursts from the clients. It is typically easy to tell if these outbursts are about to happen just by observing usual signs of aggressive behavior, but there have been a few times where the outbursts resulted in me being momentarily hospitalized. All in all, there was never a dull moment working at this facility and I would't trade the experience for anything.
Building strong relationships with the clients as well as staff.
Dealing with occasional violent outbursts.Some that even resulted in me being hospitalized.

Alumni Affairs and Development Associate (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – January 16, 2015
Work days vary depending on time of year. Fall semester was general very busy with work related to incoming student and Graduation. Spring semester was busy with Awards Ceremonies and Graduation. Adjusting to new things was difficult because there is a lack of training for jobs.
Working and being a student at UNCW is a great opportunity. I love getting a chance to work with the students and provide them with tutoring. All of the students are very polite and friendly.The University is very supportive for various types of learning activities and provides great mentorship for independent learning.
