Orientation Leader

September 2019 • Taylorsville, UT

What I liked

I love the people I work and the vibrant energy my coworkers bring into the energy. The benefits has a student leader at Orientation and Student Success is that you have your textbook paid (every semester) and your gap & gown. You will learn so many skills and you will never leave as the same person you were hired as.

Summer bridge peer mentor

May - August 2021 • Salt Lake City, UT

What I liked

I enjoyed working and getting to know the students, they were so fun to work with. It honestly didn't feel like a job most of the time, it felt like I was hanging out with friends. I also enjoyed all the fun activities we did on Fridays with the students. Best job I've had, it also opened a lot of opportunities for me at Salt Lake Community College.

What I wish was different

Advice

Be open with the students, be their friend but also be a good role model for them.

What I liked

This is a very learner-friendly environment. The orientation & Student Success office allows students to think independently and work at their own pace. Student leaders can always rely on every member of the office. We are encouraged to build our soft skills to prepare ourselves for future employment.

What I wish was different

Don't be afraid of making mistakes and don't shy away from asking questions.
