English Language Instructor (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 21 September 2017
I was hired to work a part-time short-term summer contract teaching ESL for academic purposes. The staff was clear from the beginning that this would be a non-renewable contract, but I was okay with that. I wanted to get experience, and a current reference. I really found this to be a great experience, and the pay was great. My supervisor provided all of the details regarding the days, hours, rate of pay, and details. All of this turned out to be accurate so this was a well-organized workplace to work for, and I loved it. My supervisors allowed for lots of creativity in the classroom, which was awesome. I would highly recommend this educational facility to anybody. It was a great experience.
Great supporting staff, well-organized, and great pay.

Civil Technician (Former Employee) – Queen's University – 5 September 2017
A great university to study. Queen's provides various courses which were industrial based and updated. It also provides the opportunity to the students to work inside the campus, with good leaders. I took seven courses and one project to accomplish my Masters program. The most enjoyable part was as the choreographer of the QISA team, which allowed me to interact with the new people. The one thing I learned from the university is to give the best at every moment of life.
A very supportive and friendly environment to be at.
Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 3 July 2017

Teaching Assistant (TA) (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 14 June 2017
I enjoyed working as a teaching assistant at Queen's University. I learnt quite a bit about a variety of academic subdisciplines. I also believe that this job enhanced by comprehension and writing skills. Working as a teaching assistant forces an individual to be able to speak effectively, be patient as well as learn to engage with a variety of student skillsets.
Catering staff (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 25 May 2017
This is my first job and I am still working there during school time. Catering service is interesting and their task varies each time so you never know what you will be doing until you arrive there. I learned a lot of skills there and it builds my confidence and communicating skills by working with a team. It requests people to be strong and this was the most challenging part for me. Since I got the job, I started to train my arm muscles. We held many different kinds of events and weddings during summer time. Each experience is unique for me. Besides learning skills, it is also interesting to meet different people from different events. Sometimes we can also eat the same food as the customs, but of course, only after the events ended. Overall, it is a very enjoyable job which plays a big part in my university life.
