Tutor (Former Employee), Santa Cruz, CA – June 25, 2013
Working for Learning Support Services at UCSC was a great learning experience where, I've gained many interpersonal skills. The two lovely ladies in charge of the tutoring programs are always available and wants to help with any issues. The hardest part of the job may be getting everyone in the tutoring session to actively participate, but planning – more... sessions ahead of time and making them interactive is helpful. The best part of tutoring is being able to share study skills that has brought me success in my learning to some students that have trouble focusing or understanding concepts taught in class and these students end up being really successful later on. – less
Admissions Tour Guide (Current Employee), Merced, CA – June 13, 2013
Being a tour guide at the newest university of California, merced campus was a blast! on a typical day I would have assigned tour to give, each tour would last an hour. The individuals on the tours range from elementary school-junior colleges across California.
On average I would manage around 25 prospective students across the campus and counsel them – more... about the campus.
The hardest part of being a tour guide is finishing a tour on time, no group is exactly alike, therefore it is difficult to treat them alike with the same amount of time allotted.
The most enjoyable part of the job seeing students do well at the university. – less

Market Analyst (Former Employee), Merced, CA – June 13, 2013
A typical day consisted of me meeting with my marketing team of four other students and taking the information we received from the engineers, that work closely with us, and translating that into a digestible presentation format that neatly shows our progress on the project and our financial plans. I learned quite a bit about product launch and packaging – more... design as well managing the finances of a limited project budget. The management was us, everything that went on was done under the supervision of the engineering school dean, however we managed our own schedules and time to meet deadlines. My co-workers were hard working , detail-oriented individuals with a drive to finish and to win the competition. The hardest part of the job was making sure that we got the information exactly right when translating it from what the engineers told us into a marketable presentation. The most enjoyable part of the job was being part of a dedicated team that got to create a business plan and advertise the project's capabilities to a board of CEO's on the panel of judges. – less
