Marshall University

Research assistant

April - August 2021 • Huntington, WV

What I liked

Research experience to add on my resume

What I wish was different

There were few restrictions because of Covid 19 pandemic. We were not able to collect much data as we wished for.

Advice

This experience was unpaid but it was very helpful for my future study, resume, and employment. Students should look for the quality of experience rather than salaries

Undergraduate Research Assistant

May - August 2020 • Huntington, WV

What I liked

It was a very flexible schedule and I got to work on my capstone project throughout the summer while earning a little extra cash.

What I wish was different

COVID is the only thing I would change. The protocols and lab availability were limited due to reducing the spread. It made it difficult to navigate timing of experiments and meet project deadlines.

Advice

With research, the biggest advice is to have an open mind. It is a job that comes with constant challenges and frustrations, and sometimes you just have to role with the punches!

Pool Lifeguard

May - August 2018 • Huntington, WV

What I liked

I enjoyed the camaraderie with other college-age employees and the consideration of my boss. The job also opened other opportunities to teach swim lessons, and I enjoyed seeing children become more comfortable in the water and learn to swim.

What I wish was different

The schedule was somewhat inconvenient, with gaps between shifts.

Advice

If you aren't sure what the protocol is about something at the pool, just ask!
