Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are a multitude of resources on campus for postdocs; sometimes it's hard to remember which one's are available. Advice would be to make all of the resources at Stanford more available

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I find it odd that other students get paid a starting rate of $13/hr for pointing a video camera at a professor (for classes to post lectures online), while tour guides must learn upwards of a 400 page manual on campus/history/etc. and must be "on-it at all times" while giving tours, but our starting salary is much lower. I loved being a tour guide and the position truly enriched my experience at Stanford, but that aspect did always seem strange to me...just a thought...
