My role as a student worker is to support MIS faculty or staff members with administrative functions. Manage a schedule which includes helping and meeting students. Handle interaction with students as needed including filtering email messages and making sure that inquiries are handled. Their duties may include downloading new software to computers on campus, assisting students in the computer labs, working on problem computers and performing other duties as assigned.
Some of the projects that I have worked on include making a student worker handbook, ordering swag for our ITACS and DIM programs, gathering job information about our most recent graduates, researching carnival ideas, etc. The biggest project I worked on was making a student worker handbook. I spent days breaking apart the everyday tasks that I do and writing directions exactly how to do every task.
I have learned a lot throughout my time as a student worker. Some of the things that I have learned include installing software on computers, updating spread sheets with information from surveys, and I have improved my research skills and excel skills.
