Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MB – July 22, 2014
Pros: free lunch
A typical day at work is you have to be fully prepared and to know the subject and the topic to treat for the day very well, by constant reading, studying and searching for updated information before presenting it to students.
I have learned how to present a seminar through power point presentation, how to communicate to students by so doing I am improving my communication skills.
The management are so friendly ready to answer any questions and provide relevant assistance, I may require.
We work as a team, collaborators and learn from each other.
The hardest part of the job is every day you have to research and update your information to students, do a lot of demonstrations in a simple term for students to understand you better.
The most enjoyable part of the job, it makes you always committed to your job, gathering new information, learning more skills, socializing with different personality and more productive.
Grad research assistant/ Laboratory instructor (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MB – March 15, 2014
Pros: yes sometimes free lunch
Cons: haha, maybe the rush when you have to finish more than 2 projects in a same time
The three hours lab teaching start with stress, you never know how your students are and how much they will connect with you until you walk between them and get to know their each personality and their way to learn or to be able to open their ears and communication channels. but after half an hour or one hour the work is rewarded when at list 70% of the students understand the mechanisms of science. Then the environment is relaxed , we are connected.
Office Administrator (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MB – April 10, 2015
Pros: Free lectures and seminars - sometimes even free courses
Cons: Strict hours
A fairly hierarchical organization, but one that values education and advancement opportunities for faculty and staff. A typical day is dependent on the needs of the department. The hardest part of the job is that because it's so hierarchical, lower positions aren't given the same respect as higher positions, regardless of how much they contribute. The most enjoyable part of the job is access to a variety of different people.
Aerial and Remote Sensing Lab Monitor (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MB – July 26, 2015
During my time working as a lab monitor I learnt that having a creative way of illustrating technical ideas was important to teaching other students. My Professor was very amazing and a source of information. Creating connections with students was a great experience to help them out in the lab class and talk to them out of class in other courses we shared.
