Weber State University

Research intern

August - December 2021 • Ogden, UT

What I liked

I loved learning how to write a grant proposal for the research we are doing to receive funding.

What I wish was different

We are still in the middle of the project so I think as long as everything keeps going smooth, I have enjoyed the experience.

Advice

Taking the time to learn a new skill from a mentor with peers is a great opportunity to learn, gain experience, and expand your ideas. Research is a long process and takes a lot of team work. Be willing to work with your team to reach your goals. Ask lots of questions to make the most of your time with the people you are working with.

Network Tech

January 2019 • Ogden, UT

What I liked

I loved the flexibility of schedule from this job and how it worked around my school schedule. I won't say jobs on campus don't prioritize work, but they definitely help you have some free time to work on school projects. Something else I like is the working environment and safety it offers to its employees.

What I wish was different

Better outreach for students, perhaps through initiatives to help them feel appreciated on campus. As I've talked to several other student employees, I believe we all came to a consensus that most student employees feel underappreciated, which decreases morale.

Advice

Always be professional and keep yourself busy, this shows great initiative and responsibility as an employee, which can bring potential job opportunities in a near future.

There was plenty of work to be done and wonderful people to work with. The atmosphere in the Writing Center is relaxing and conductive to productivity, and the tutors are kind and fun to work with.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have done my research on obtaining a job at the Writing Center, as my position was unconventional due to my ignorance about the class required for tutor training.

Advice

Do your research and get in touch with the director ahead of time to ensure you can be appropriately employed.

Keep looking for opportunities and make the most out of the internship experience by really investing yourself in your work. Interns can give any organization a fresh perspective, so don't be afraid to share your ideas! Interning really is a symbiotic relationship and you get what you give.
