I did write an overview of my responsibilities
Education Specialist ll (Former Employee), Santa Barbara, CAJuly 25, 2014
Pros: working within a strong accredited system
Cons: too much to do - wore 4 sometimes 5 "hats."
I brought extensive design knowledge to the program from experience as a professional interior designer who was nominated to the IIDA College of Fellow in 1993. I learned to work within a given system after being an independent business owner for many years.
The Dean and program adviser were helpful in my attaining
Education Specialist ll degree.
The – more... hardest part of my job was the various problems the older students completing the assignments and units required. I did a great deal of counseling.
The most enjoyable part was being a part of the UC system and teaching the students about the world of design and color.
Also, using my communication skills in the public sector.
I worked in both the administration side of the program and the in-struction side successfully.
This was a 20 a week assignment – less

I enjoy my job and life in UCLA
postdoc (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 27, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: healthcare
usually I write down and set up experiment one day before, and start bench work around 8am in the next day morning, read paper between the experiment, have lunch with colleagues at 1pm, continue bench work until one day work that i write down is done.
All the co-workers are nice, we talk sciences and life and exchange our ideas about the projects.
The – more... hardest part of the job is most antibodies are not working well. So we have to spend a lot of time to repeat and confirm one result.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the result published online. – less
