As Senior Department Coordinator, Brandeis offered a fast paced multitasking environment. I interfaced with the public and and colleagues and learned a great deal collaborating with departments to manage the office daily, including payroll, budgeting, procurement, facilities maintenance and financial aid departments. I found the work culture to be supportive and enriching. The most challenging part of the job was managing expectations of the population we served, being students and parents. In turn, this was also the most enjoyable part of the job - providing the best customer service possible while providing a safe, supportive environment for students to live, and be successful.
Lots of stimulating interaction. Secure workplace
