Great place to enhance ones capacities and have better opportunities at the professional field. Only attending as professional student for the Project Management Certificate Program which is valid to sit for the Project Management Professional Exam developed and created by the Project Management Institute.
A typical day at work would be hard to explain. I wore many hats during an eight hour shift, The daily duties would rotate based on any given day of the monthly cycle. The hardest part if the job was being able to see all the projects in a completed state.

Researcher (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – May 2, 2016
Working as a researcher at UT Austin is fantastic in terms of other committments, but the structure of payment is not well explained, and you pay severely in terms of benefits when you take on the position without much information on how it affects your insurance.
Good amounts of free time
Confusing, financially inferior to common alternatives
The work environment provided employees with a sense of security and unity, allowing for an overall positive, optimistic atmosphere at the university

I had this job when I was in UT-Austin. I was guided by two professional technicians. They are really up in their game and extremely proficient in what they are doing. Also, I am truly thankful for the kind team leader for helping me and recommending me to numerous universities.

Senior Design Construction Manager (Former Employee) – Tyler, TX – March 1, 2016
The school promoted a proper learning environment with so much flexibility to adjust the pressure. Projects assigned by professors were similar or resembling real life work environment challenges. There was great team work in the assigned project with classmates as well as professors. The hardest part of the job was to break down new concepts that were incorporated in the projects, and the most enjoyable part of the projects we did was coming out with the most effective solution to the problems presented in the projects.
very good learning environment, good rapport between students and instructors
computers froze most of the time we were working on the projects
Management is comprehensive and flexible hours to work. It is a great work environment with supportive coworkers. Everyone shows great customer service skills when helping people who come to game days. We care for the overall experience of the people coming to the events and will be of service on any possible way. The boss is really supportive, energetic, and understanding towards the employees, and will look out for them. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping people and seeing that this job is worth it because you bring them happiness and comfort. The hardest part of the job is to handle a difficult problem that comes across when you do not have the answer to the question but I have learned to figure it out and come up with solutions.
Encouraging environment, the boss is open to hear the opinions of others
Research Assistant - seems appropriate. (Former Employee) – Austin, TX - Love Austin! – January 18, 2016
1) A typical day at work consisted primarily of training new instrument users on the SEM and EDS. 2) I learned many new applications of the SEM to solve a wide variety of research problems. 3) Management didn't do anything to support my efforts or reward my accomplishments. They were mostly absent from the scene. 4) I had no co-workers as such, but the users were largely a bright and well mannered group. 5) The hardest part of the job was dealing with the occasional inflated ego. 6) The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing a user gain valuable insight into their research with the instrumentation.
Never a boring job! Always something new.
Only part-time (19 hours per week) therefore no benefits.
I worked in the business office in the College of Pharmacy. I helped with data entry, prepared payment vouchers, paid monthly and yearly bills, purchased items for laboratories and departments in the College of Pharmacy.
What starts here does change the world and your life...
Senior Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 14, 2016
One of the largest employers in Austin and rewarding careers. My position at UT Austin was one of the most enjoyable times of my life. The diverse culture, energetic campus and eager students make it easy to come to work. During my time, growth internally and between departments seemed strong and rewarding for many. I would highly recommend being part of the university team if you are lucky to be selected.
Upon arrival, I saw that there were only three minorities out of the 80 or so personnel there. You MUST fit in or you will be treated with hostility. Too much profanity, inappropriate joking, i.e., racists comments. You are expected to overlook blatant ethic violations. If you report a legitimate act of discrimination, you will be looking for another job!
