I had a manager and group of co-workers whom I respect and like very much.
Though this job was challenging at times, I didn't find it difficult in any way.

Anthropology Lab Assistant (Current Employee) – Eugene, OR – March 11, 2016
I love my job in the university lab. I get to handle and examine human remains and identify and articulate bone fragments. It's excellent experience for my career goal of being a Forensic Anthropologist. I only wish I could be paid, but my professor can afford to pay me. I love my job and working one on one with my professor who teaches me a lot about anthropology and Osteology but also gives me advice and experiences to help me prepare for grad school.

Stream Stewardship Team Member (Former Employee) – Eugene, OR – July 21, 2016
This was an interesting class I've taken because we did a lot of work outside of school with partners around the area. This was all very new to me and I've learned so much after being a part of the team.
Assistant Coordinator and Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Eugene, OR – October 8, 2015
Being a student while working here, UO - Academic Extension was very accommodating to my ever changing class schedule. A typical work day consisted of corresponding to numerous phone call and emails from both clients and customers and a significant amount of data entry. This job certainly has its busy seasons, in which you can expect to take about 100 calls a day and slow periods in which case you are lucky to have 2-3 calls. UO staff fosters a family-style work environment, largely in part because most student workers, (me excluded) were related to a senior coordinator.

Working for the University of Oregon First Year Programs was an enjoyable job that required me to interact with students, staff, and parents.

The managing staff was understanding and receptive, and provided valuable training beforehand.
