This job is not a technical job usually an engineer like me seek. But the experience you can gain from this job is equally valuable as your technical knowledge. You get management, supervising, project management, event organising skills.
Student Assistant English Language Institute (Former Employee) – Arlington, TX – February 20, 2014
On a typical work day I would interact with members from very diverse backgrounds and culture. For example, I would meet students from Saudi Arabia, China, Japan, and India who came to the United States to learn English. I learned how to file, locate, and organize the documents which were placed in my care. Management was great, since they were supportive and understanding.
*Its a fun place to work and keeps me balance with my academics and as I stay close to campus, its more convenient. * The management is good and makes me learn things with ease. * My colleagues are mostly from my school so we have a good bonding.
The university provides a unique environment that challenges me to think differently to find "out-side the box" solutions. The hardest part of the job is assisting managers from academic backgrounds, all having very unique desires for their organization. Even though it was the hardest part, it brought me great joy to work with them to find solutions that match their needs.
As a lab technician assigned to create a cysteine dioxygenase mutant I was primarily involved in generating the mutant as well as confirming the correct sequence for the generated mutant DNA. My direct superior was both informative as well as understanding, which to me created an ideal work environment. The procedure to generate the CDO mutants required optimization in order to work correctly. The most frustrating and difficult part of this assignment was the troubleshooting and optimization of the protocol. However, the sense of accomplishment garnered when success was attained more than made up for any frustration. I would gladly continue work in this setting were it a possibility.
