My colleagues were exceptional, the job was fantastic! I would definitely work there again.
Working with both international and domestic students were the highlight of my day, especially when I could solve their problems easily. Sometimes all anyone wanted was someone to listen to their issues.
Mi'gmaw Aboriginal Student Representative (Former Employee) – Nova Scotia – 30 March 2016
I had the opportunity to represent all First Nations students that attended CBU. Having sat on the student union for 3 years was a learning experience. Teaching and sharing the knowledge and understanding of the First Nation student body that attend the University was a bit of a struggle, the ignorance was still there, at monthly meetings I would bring forward the concerns the FN students brought forward. Many of the concerns had been addressed and dealt with. Having host many cultures events within the University has also help the whole student body, also inviting the students and union reps to the Unama'ki College which is part of the University and meeting with the students openly, hosting treaty month and other important ceremonies that we have, many included singing/drumming and dancing in our traditional regalia and foods.
Acknowledge who we are as FN peoples and our ways of life.

Marketing Research Analyst (Former Employee) – Sydney, NS – 16 May 2013
At CBU everyday was more friendly and fun with lots of people around me. Being a Marketing Analyst I was trained in such a way that I talk, talk and talk more friendly with fresh mind so that I don't feel the work pressure.
I learned how to provide customer service through my calls and conversations with the clients everyday, and I also feel so much blessed and thankful for the organization who trained me in such a way that I won't feel left alone. People around me were so much friendly and fun loving and I should say that I was enjoying and treasuring my time when I worked as Marketing Analyst.
The most effective part of the Job is dealing with clients who were not interested in the research survey or analysis and at the same time the most enjoyable part of the job is convincing the clients and creating the curiosity in them about my research findings.
Student Postion- Department Assistant of Anthropology/Sociology
Department Assistant of Anthropology/Sociology (Former Employee) – Sydney, NS – 29 May 2012
I left salary and advancement out because this was a one year student position. I also left work/life balance out because I did not have the duties of a full time professor. My coworkers were great, the professors really helped me in preparing materials for students and giving me more knowledge.
