UAB Department of Biology

Student Assistant

January 2019 - March 2020 • Birmingham, AL

What I liked

I love being able to have a job that is so convenient for someone living on campus. The scheduling is very flexible when it comes to completing schoolwork outside of class hours, as well. The staff is so kind and I enjoy being able to connect with grad students, TAs, and professors in the department.

What I wish was different

Advice

Listen to instructions closely and learn what each professor is looking for. Be open to admitting your mistakes and tackling them quickly to learn for next time.
