I worked with two professors for two years while attending Acadia University. I did not have set work hours, so I was able to work when I wanted. This flexibility allowed me to balance my school work and other commitments very easily. When I was working, I was doing such tasks as research, organization, communication with other institutions, marking tests, publicity for the Acadia Theatre Company, and show research for upcoming productions.
Both of these professors were easy to work with and cared about furthering my education rather than just have me sort through large amounts of tedious paperwork.
I worked alone most of the time but often had other people come in to help, especially with publicity for shows.
This job easily fit into my university life. I was able to come and go as I pleased as long as I finished the work. The workload was not tremendous but was often challenging.
