Learned leadership, public speaking, and interactional skills as a new student orientation leader
New Student Orientation Leader (Former Employee) – Elgin, IL – January 13, 2019
Each day at work consisted of leading new student orientations to familiarize incoming college students with the school and its various programs of study. As a leader, we were expected to be good role models in guiding new students in their transition to college life. There were two managers and a coordinator of first year programs and they were very cooperative in helping us succeed and grow as leaders. Overall, most workers were friendly as it is required in order to work the job, so there was always a form of camaraderie within the team. The hardest part of the job was initially building up the courage to speak in front of about 50 people at a time, but I later found it to be the most enjoyable part later on, because engaging and interacting with people was a fun challenge and I can see directly how I affected them.
