I had to make sure all the facilities were in their best operating condition, so the wheels of business would run smoothly in a very diverse institution. Maintaining the safety and security for the AUK community were the highest priority. I enjoyed every day of my work at AUK till an unqualified person took charge of the department and after inflicting career damages to several people was dismissed of her position.

I enjoyed working at the university as a student, it helped me practice being in a working environment while implementing what i have learned in classes. The most enjoyable part was that it didn't feel like work. The AUK community felt more like family than anything else, they encouraged us to learn and try different working styles. I was able to find what i was more comfortable with, what needed improvement, and how to do it.
Pros
Location made it easy, since i can leave class and go straight to the office
Cons
Student pay wasn't the best

Really enjoyed being part of the marketing team. It made me feel home and that every input i dedicated did count on my behalf. I was not treated as an outsider because of my internship, but in fact, they made me feel like i belonged to this company. I attended important meetings and staff meetings. I was able to be part of the initiation process of the Marketing Plan.

the students are wonderful and keep your motivation up. The departments and support system is great as well.
I would have stayed longer but it is a not a country where you can establish roots or settle down in. There is not much room for personal and professional growth.
