Friendly and cooperative team
Research Scientist (Current Employee), Toronto, ONSeptember 10, 2013
I worked in Wincore Lab at the Ryerson University. I enjoyed my work there. The team members and staffs were very cooperative and friendly. The professor leading the lab were very helpful. I learned how to manage and lead a team and how to collaborate with other people in the group and other group in different universities. We have flexibility in the – more... work. As such we could sometime work from home (we could access resources from home computer) and sometime we also worked in the weekend and night when needed. Overall, it was my great pleasure to work in Ryerson. – less

Productive workplace where I could practice my skills.
Geo-Technology Laboratory Monitor (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 3, 2013
I monitored and assisted students in a working lab with geo-technology and GIS software. I learned teaching skills towards fellow students. I always worked alone. The management was not around during work hours but very helpful via email. The hardest part of the job was helping students performing calculations in GIS software such as ARC, I would have – more... to learn these calculations along with them. The most enjoyable part was the ability to practice my abilities with the software in this extra time. – less

Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 11, 2013
Teaching Assistant - Supply Chain Process Architecture

Being a student, a teaching assistant position is a very honourable position that awards high academic achievement. A typical day as a teaching assistant would mean on-call work as the semester progressed. The job responsibilities for myself were mainly grading student assignments, creating rubrics, – more... assisting students, and invigilating exams.

I have learnt a lot as a teaching assistant from the importance of protecting personal information to developing fair assessment tools. One of the most important lessons I have learned as a teaching assistant is to maintain constant communication with the supervising professor. As the semester progressed, I have learnt to appreciate the aforementioned more and more as the work begins to increase exponentially and deadlines become shorter.

The teaching assistant role is a self-management role, where the supervising professor will occasionally give you tasks with specified or mutually agreed deadlines.

The hardest part of the job would definitely be the fact that work would increase at the same time school work would increase. This meant increased burden of work during examination times.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that teaching assistants have a view of the teacher's side of the educational process. To top it off, it also paid really well. – less
