Since I was on work study, staff members and management team were very flexible and considerate. Everyday I provided administrative support to seven staff members and career counselors. I helped by answering phone calls, managed calendars and scheduled appointments. I assisted students, employers, faculty staff, and visitors with questions regarding office services like workshops, resume editing, career counseling, interviewing skills. I also, updated event calendar and maintained department’s website to post new employers and jobs and/or details regarding upcoming events.
Joyful atmosphere, access to career planning events
Adjuncting is rough. My immediate departmental supervisors were great: supportive and helpful in all ways. And there is a whole adjuncting machine at St. Edward's. But it's a completely exploitative system. The administration hires people with advanced degrees for just thousands of dollars per course to shore up their other programs. Not a good deal if you're supplementing your pay with food stampls in order to feed your kids.
