Great learning environment with a multitude of resources
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – London, ON – 9 March 2016
As a graduate student at Western, there was always the ability to learn as well as multiple opportunities to advance personal growth and knowledge in areas such as health and illness, migration, and also in qualitative and quantitative work. At Western I learned independence as well as the importance of working as a team and learning your resources in other academics. To conduct good research requires a solid foundation in ethics and methods, and Western offers these resources through other employees or programs on-campus or through affiliations with other Institutions. The most difficult part of the position is ensuring proper balance and creating your own timeline to do work efficiently; however, this challenge is also what makes being a part of the Western community enjoyable. There is always room for growth and expansion if you choose to pursue those options yourself.
Interconnectedness with colleagues, resources, support
