Indiana Wesleyan University

Student Assistant - Financial Aid

June 2018 • Marion, IN

What I liked

It has given me the opportunity to work a job at my university and get valuable experience working in an office setting. I have appreciated how easy it has been to transition my role into the school year and get hours that work for me.

What I wish was different

Honestly, it has been a pretty great experience. Nothing that I would change about it.

Advice

It is a good work environment with great coworkers and offers a wonderful opportunity to learn what it is like to work in an office, along with teaching important communication skills.

Procurement Assistant

March 2018 • Marion, IN

What I liked

I learned many applicable skills in the workplace and got to work with a very compassionate, supportive, and Christ-like team.

What I wish was different

My only issue was with the training process. It was mainly led by student employees, so there were certain protocols I had to unlearn due to it being learned wrong by the previous individual.

Advice

Go for internship and work experiences you wouldn't typically picture yourself in. It's a great growing experience and will provide you with skills to help you stand out in your actual field.

Conference Services Crew Leader and Spiritual Formation Leader

October 2016 • Marion, IN

What I liked

Serving in a Christian context and having coworkers who are also my classmates during the semester.

What I wish was different

The Spiritual Formation Leader is a job that I created within the company. Since it was a "trial-run" there were things that worked and things that did not work so I plan to develop the role and programs that are planned to better support and help the workers and guests on our campus.

Advice

This is a job that requires patience and handwork, if you focus on the good you are doing and fight negativity, then it is a very fulfilling job.
