Pros: mentoring program, doctoral research group, college day and transfer fair.
Cons: not flexible in ability to participate in other areas within the college
Participated in POCs, (Points of Contact) in visiting classrooms to conduct guided registration, career planning, transfer day and new student orientation. Host college day, advise students towards course completion, graduation, enrollment, testing and financial aid. Served as person of contact on days when management is not available, athletic mentor – more... and adviser. Participate with mentor programming, campus department liaison and doctoral group committee member. I learned to multi-task and to maintain a positive outlook in advising students from various backgrounds. My colleagues were all very easy to get along with and we worked together in supporting one another. The job was hard, time consuming, tedious and repetitive at times but not hard. I very much enjoyed participating in the mentor program, attending events, social gatherings, college days, informational and career workshops, facilitating academic presentations in encouraging young men to persist in their college education. – less
