UPDATE: Winter break is now coming to a close, Spring semester begins tomorrow. All is well except I have a job interview on campus, this makes me nervous.

Don't sweat the interview, really.  I just be normal and I've gotten every single job I've ever applied for, save for the stupid online apps I've filled out, because nobody really cares about those.

Haha thanks Imasock, I will try to just be as normal as possible (aside from my traditional weirdness that needs to be hidden). If I get the job then I have to worry about helping to educate people, but it's kinda sketchy, you get the people who actually care and want to be there, the idiots who don't care and want answers handed to them and then people who don't care at all and don't come.

It's not, I meant sketchy as in you have random attendance.

Tutoring? That's an easy job as long as you understand the material.

These are my main duties
Quote
*  Attend all class meetings of the selected course, take notes and read assigned materials.
    * Actively recruit SI participants by making weekly announcements about the availability of SI sessions to students and by posting session information every class meeting.
    * Conduct three 50-minute study sessions per week throughout the term.
    * Ascertain course requirements, plan effective learning activities and provide handouts for use during SI sessions.
    * Maintain contact throughout the term with the course professor.
    * Meet with other campus SI leaders and supervisory staff at weekly meetings.
    * Maintain office hour each week in the SI office.
    * Attend the mandatory SI Leader training prior to the start of every Fall and Spring semester.

 

So yeah it shouldn't be that bad, and I like the material.

That's the worst TA job description (it's like being a student at the same time, why) I have ever seen. I hope it pays well.

That's the only downside, but it's work right? I don't know how much it pays, but I'll see probably tomorrow. Will post update tomorrow about how interview went and if there is interest how much I will( barring not getting the job) be paid. Until then 'Night All.

Remember, it only says that you have to "attend" classes.  You don't have to be proactive in listening to them, or even do much more than sitting there and handing out stuff, probably grading too.  Maybe it means that you get paid to go to school - in that case, take classes which you haven't taken for the benefit of maximum damage (better than free schooling, better than normal learning).

I don't think he'd be able to tutor for a class he hasn't taken before? (In some form or another.)

Yeah, they only allow you to do a class that you have credit for. Well I did the interview and it went fine except that the only class they have is economics (which I am not super strong in) and that was at 8 o'clock at night so no go there. I am at the top of the list for any openings so I'm always on standby, or at the worst next semester I'm in.

EDIT: Thanks Imasock  ;)

Probably nothing that they haven't done already.  Maybe I can make more use of the  ^ and _ keys, so that to change a directory, you do like ^_^

Classes that are major specific=more difficult than expected. I got an 87 on my first test, this doesn't make me happy and I was sternly talked too. Any study tips on how to best prepare for tests*?

*this is especially important as I have only 2 tests in this class, so the next one has to be A+++.
