1) What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is when I’m presented with an idea and I make it a reality.
A good example would be when we needed a new event calendar and I was able to work with setting up the program from scratch and making it a reality. There is a real sense of pride when everything comes together and people appreciate your efforts.
2) What is the most challenging part of your job?
Trying to please the toughest critics and accommodate their needs the best I can.
3) What has been the most valuable outcome of the course you took with Higher Ed Experts?
I am able to take rough content that has been given to me and rewrite it into appropriate, web writing standards. I’m more confident with my writing abilities now than I was before I took the course, and assured that my content has maximum SEO.
4) Besides Higher Ed Experts courses and conferences, what else do you recommend for professional development in higher education?
Never stop educating yourself. There are many opportunities out there to enhance your skills. Always watch what other higher education sources are doing. You never know where a good idea may come from.Tags: Alums, Higher Ed News
