There are a lot of different opportunities at Iowa State. The problem is that the job-related tasks can be very demanding and you must focus to balance school work and your job.

    Pros

    I was able to meet many new and interesting people while working there and the hours were easy to work with.

    The only downside to the job I had was that it was temporary with no opportunity to change to a permanent position.

    Advice to Management

    I would have loved to have the opportunity to work full-time for the university, maybe in the future that can be an option for some temporary helpers at the beginning of the year.
