I worked at University of British Columbia part-time for more than a year

Pros

Great way to earn an extra income as a student, with rock solid pay for a part-time job. Easy access to reference letters, and a good way to network as a bonus. I'd venture to say that this is the best work-study position available at UBC.

Cons

No cons really; my own writing improved as a consequence of working here and getting trained by the centre. Yeah, I really can't think of a single con.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work! The people at the centre are awesome!
