I was a contracted consultant

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
As a consultant, I did not work under typical employee regulations. The work was amazingly satisfying since the mandate of the program was to increase the workforce to be more inclusive of Indigenous employees.

Pros

Diversity

First Nations of Canada provides students with employment opportunities while studying.

First Nations University of Canada offers programming in a culturally appropriate setting, offering various programs for urban and rural Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. The small campus has a 'family' feel to it, as it is easy to get to know most of the names of the staff, faculty and students. From Library Assistant to Teacher's Assistant, it was enjoyable to work at First Nations University.

Pros

Working on campus increases student success.

Cons

none

Great place to learn.

its a great place to work and attend school. Being a student librarian assistant, it gives you a bit of work experience and a bit of extra pocket change for the struggling student. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help students and have conversations with them about books and classes.

Pros

surrounded by books

Cons

short hours
