Diverse, friendly, fun, and empowering work environment with flexible hours
Outdoor Trip Leader (Current Employee) – Malibu, CA – March 3, 2018
Working for Pepperdine University as a student worker in their Campus Recreation department has enhanced my knowledge and skills of working with different groups of people and collaborating and communicating effectively with co-workers. It has enhanced my organizational, planning, critical thinking, and leadership skills in having to organize, plan, advertise, and lead groups of students on a variety of outdoor excursions while having to manage different variables such as group size and diversity, individual needs/constraints, environment, task and trip difficulty variability. I loved the flexible hours and having a lot of autonomy in being able to choose and plan which trips to do which really has empowered me to develop my leadership skills. My favorite part of the job was being able to interact with and connect to different students of all different backgrounds and age groups while on in the wilderness.
enhancement of leadership, communication, organizational, interpersonal, and outdoor recreation skills.
Too flexible hours so didn't guarantee steady pay every week.
