found - another life
Liaison Officer (Former Employee), Wolfville NSSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: holding the hands and then letting the birds fly
Cons: not enough jobs for all the creative individuals
working with the greeness of students and watching them sprout into full-blown blossoms, after gaining work experience in the 'real' world while completing a degree, was a most fulfilling, worthwhile experience.......i had free-reign and appreciated the confidence my superiors had in me to 'run' my own show.......

Amazing Opportunity for Students
Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee), Wolfville, NSApril 13, 2013
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 – more... 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. – less

Un cadre de travail exceptionnel
Lectrice (Former Employee), WolfvilleJuly 29, 2012
Pros: un environnement arboré magnifique
Acadia est idéale pour qui débute sa carrière de prof, mais aussi pour ceux qui souhaite un développement de carrière à la fois prestigieuse et tranquille car c'est une petite structure où enseignants et étudiants se connaissent. L'ambiance de travail y est telle qu'il n'y a aucun problème de discipline à régler auprès des étudiants. Chaque département – more... fonctionne en relative autonomie d'où une liberté appréciable pour les enseignants.
Les relations entre collègues sont assez bonnes et le personnel administratif est très compétent. – less
