Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 29 January 2017
It was very hard to work in this environment as it was very disorganized. Things were never done when they were suppose to be, keeping in touch with the management was difficult as they hardly responded to the e mails, and it pay was not what it was promised to be.
Student Researcher (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 13 March 2017
I worked from September to the end of October. I could pick and choose what shifts I wanted to take, each were 4 hours in length. The job was relatively easy but my paycheck was delayed as the funding was coming from another University.

Teaching Assistant (TA) (Current Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 17 April 2016
A day at work began sitting and listening to lectures while taking notes. As I was writing notes I would keep an eye out for students who were disengaged and advise them to pay attention. When it was time for the students to hand in their papers the professor and I would sit down and discuss the general expectations for the material. I then went on my way and marked up the papers. Influencing the way that the students thought about through provision of advice comments and grades was the best part of the job. I knew that I was making a difference in each and every students life.
Working for the University was enlightening and helpful for building integrity and patience
Freshwater Ecology Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 24 April 2016
I had a few different responsibilities when I was working with the University of New Brunswick. I spent most of my days entering specimen data into excel files which required me to work quickly and thoroughly to get the job done on the day I had set for my employer. I was in charge of making my own hours and following my own schedule. I attended meetings every Monday morning to update the team on what I was working on. Other responsibilities included working in labs to grind specimens to a fine powder so that I could later use them for isotope sampling. The hardest part of the job was the Isotope sampling; It was physically tiring on the lower back due to the long hours of sitting in the lab. This job was a great experience for me, it taught me integrity and patience when dealing with tedious tasks. I enjoyed helping with research because I felt like it was important for understanding the ecology of invertebrates.

Library and Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 15 August 2012
Helped faculty and students find information on using the library and other information. There were projects such as transcribing memoirs and completing interlibrary loans. The hardest part was not being able to help someone find their information they were looking for. I liked the "searching" aspect of my job. Very enjoyable.
setting was a learning environment, i liked working for a university.
University well recognized for Engineering program
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 24 May 2014
I started the PhD program in the Department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering at University of New Brunswick in 2008. It is a quite place for study. Even the number of professors in this department is limited, but every one is very well recognized in their field. With a high student/professor ratio, students get more chances to discuss their research with the supervisor. It was informative and interesting to join the group meeting every Friday afternoon, giving a brief summary of the work done over the week, looking for advices and comments from other group members, and learn from others as well. Talking about the hard part, I would said that is try to survive in the winter:)
Entomology research assistant (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 21 November 2012
My summer working for the University was unique and informable. I learned a great deal about insects and the damages they cause to the forest , which in turn hurt the forest industry. The job included lots of field work and driving around. The professor leading the project made the working environment settle and enjoyable. My co-workers were great team players and were very fun and easy to work with.
