Neutral Outlook

I worked at University of Michigan part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You talk to some interesting alumni for 5-7 minutes before you have to start bothering them for money.

Cons

You must pester and manipulate people for money. You must be able to handle repeated verbal rejection and criticism.

Advice to Management

Four asks, each of lesser amounts, is excessive and puts strain on employees. Two specific asks followed by one open (any amount, even $5, would be appreciated) would put less strain on callers and alums.
