I was hired to work in the Special Collections center of the library in three emails.
Upon arriving, I was informed that I would work at two different posts.
*The digitization area, making/improving databases for collections.
*The presidential collections area, writing short biographies and summaries for the collections of information about past university presidents.
These jobs are both extremely enjoyable. There’s no place a book lover would rather work, and both jobs are laid back, which is always a plus during the overwhelming challenges of graduate school.
But wait, there’s more!
After one week of working there, I was asked if I would like my next job to be editing someone’s book as they write it.
As they compiled each chapter, I would correct their grammar, assist with English, and advise them about organization.
I think I said yes before he finished his sentence.
So now, as my job, I am doing all three things. I’m paying my tuition and gaining extremely valuable experience in a variety of areas.
Work is one of the highlights of my day.
