A typical day at work depends on you. Everyone is very nice, which makes it difficult to stay moody, we have good laughs and its a space where you can grow yourself.

Researching data for university professors.
Usually, scrapping metadata and trim those into a decent excel file.

It was very nice to communicate with professors.

Quiet location. Expensive live in the city; cheap accommodation. Boring and cold city. Friendly workplace. No consideration for life responsibilities.

At Memorial I worked as assistant to a researcher in Genetics, maintaining and updating a database of pedigrees (family trees) using the Cyrillic and Progeny computer programs, which were new to me. I also maintained the associated filing system of medical information, and did typing and reprographic work as required.

It was a very friendly place to work, and my bosses were always very appreciative of what I did.


It was very rewarding to produce a complicated pedigree and work out how to make the program do what I needed it to do.


The hardest part was waiting to find out if research funding was going to be available, and having to give up the job when the funding ran out.
Pros
My hours were flexible
Cons
Insecurity because of research funding

Grenfell Campus is an overall great university. I would recommend any students who study to look into on-campus jobs. They offer flexible schedules and allow you to earn an income while stiudying full-time.
