Volunteer powwow club instructor before hiring (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 22 March 2017
The basketball court at the health and recplex is a good space to practice the powwow dance but can get quite hot and is small, which gives us dancers a disadvantage. The powwow club program is a great way to teach the youth and adults about the Aboriginal culture and dance.

Instructor (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 19 June 2017
The classes are a bit smaller than the U of Manitoba. However the students might be a bit weaker than those of U of Manitoba. However, the students of U of Winnipeg might be more appreciating towards the instructors. I have worked with the U of Manitoba Math Department and the U of Winnipeg Math Department, but I think the U of Winnipeg Math Department better treats the sessional instructors.
Intern (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 30 January 2017
I would say my time interning at the University in the Department of Anthropology was one of the best opportunities I have had. I learned a lot about the field and got a first hand glimpse at what it is like to be a curator for artifacts. I had a lot of fun in the short time I was there, I learned a lot social and organization skills there that have proven to be very beneficial for me in both my professional and personal life.

There are many different jobs on the campus of U of Wpg, but they all share a fast-pace and intensely social environment full of students and staff.

Aerial and Remote Sensing Lab Monitor (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 26 July 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.
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.
Free lectures and seminars - sometimes even free courses
