Flexible working schedule
Project Assistant Supervisor (Current Employee), Monterey Park ClinicApril 4, 2014
Pros: flexible working hours
Cons: lack of benefits.
This position allows me to contact potential clients base on a flexible schedule. I master the skills of communicating with total strangers, and explain the purpose and procedures of our research project. Self-confidence is the key to present a professional image to convince the clients to participate the free comprehensive eye exam. The management – more... system is Team work base, which means it requires the whole team of ten co-workers to work together and reach the weekly goals of completed exam numbers. The hardest part of the job is to follow-up the refusual converse because people don't change their minds easily once they refuse to participate the project voluntary. The most enjoyable part of the job is how some clients will call me and express their appreciations of the benefits after completing the free eye exams. – less

REU Summer Chemistry Intern
REU Chemistry Internship (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAMarch 21, 2014
Pros: research experience, one-on-one mentorship in chemistry
Cons: location of internship
10 week long chemistry internship at USC. I averaged 40 hour weeks and was mentored by a post doc on an antiviral prodrug research project. A typical day involved praticing organic chemistry techniques in the synthesis of the prodrug, analysis of products by phosphorous NMR, mass spec, and UV spectroscopy, running columns for product purification, and – more... journal literature searches. In addition, I worked on my own project which involved testing out different coupling reagents and varying the hydrolysis conditions for the synthesis of the prodrug in order to attempt to improve the overall product yield. My work was supervised by my post-doc mentor, and all experiments were recorded in a lab notebook that remains the property of USC. The end of the internship culminated in a poster presentation of my work to the other interns, the PI's, and graduate students at USC.

In addition, the internship provided weekly seminars at which the chemistry PI's talked about their research, job outlook in industry and academia, current topics of interest, and graduate school at USC. – less

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Long Beach, CaliforniaFebruary 8, 2014
Pros: fast advancement, great customer service experience
Cons: horrible communication between crew members
Being in management in a fast food restaurant has its ups and downs. Making sure the proper inventory count is the most crucial part of the whole ordeal. Making sure all your employees have the proper training to complete the task they are given. Understanding and meeting the needs of your customers, providing them with a smile and excellent service.
