    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is apparent with hires since the new Provost came that in order to move up professionally, one needs to be in Engineering.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to enhance your leadership, time management, and social skills. You get to work with a lot of great people, and you get your on-campus housing paid for!

    Cons

    It's more of a lifestyle than a job. Your community could have a situation you are needed to take care of at any time, so if you aren't willing to have a job where you can't just "clock out" of at a specific time and can forget about, it could not be the job for you.
