Best Research Assistant Experience I could have hoped for
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – City Centre Campus – 23 March 2013
This was a fairly informal job position. Essentially I had to directly work for a professor, recruit summer students for interviews, then conduct, record, and transcribe the interviews.
There were other students also working, but we rarely needed to interact, and when we did it was usually via email.
Hardest part was time management as I had a high level of discretion with this job. Another difficult aspect was learning to transcribe interviews quickly, but it was a VERY good experience.
Most enjoyable personally was being able to work from home (when transcribing) and working with students in a face-to-face context.
