Hello, hello, hello everyone!!!!
How are you? Are you already enrolled? Or about to be enrolled at UCB? I hope you are as excited as me to start uni. I am starting my second year, and I hope it is as good as last year.
Today I would like to speak about enrolment week. I want to tell you about my experience working with the Admissions Department and enrolling students on their courses. But first, I would like to congratulate all those students that graduated this year, for all their patience and motivation that helped them achieve all that they have wished for. I hope all your hard work has paid off!!!
This past week I have been working for the Admissions Department as I was saying previously. I loved the experience so much that I recommend it to all of you. I think applying for a job at university gives you so much understanding of how everything works, especially if you haven’t had a proper career like me and wish to gain experience while completing your degree, because you are able to choose the amount of hours or days you want to work while studying.
You can’t even imagine the amount of hard work that goes into every single event, or on the online system, or even in every department. I’ve only been working in the Admissions Department, and I’ve realised how much hard work goes behind everything that we sometimes take for granted. Maybe you would think that it’s a straightforward job like I thought before. However, most of the task they do take quite a lot of time to be completed. And working with them has made me appreciate UCB more. I think it’s a university that really cares about their students and they are always looking forward to helping them in any difficult situation they may face, if they are local, European or international students, they are all equal. And for me, that’s very important.
One of my most significant achievements during this past week has been speaking to students, which is something I always thought that I wouldn’t be able to do. I am really shy talking to new people and trying to make myself look confident has been a challenge and this job has allowed me to overcome my shyness.
If you are thinking about working at UCB this year and it’s something you look forward to, but you don’t really know the process, you just need to do a very simple step. You need to go to hired@UCB and they will help you complete the steps and then you may choose the area you would prefer to work in with Unitemps.
