As part of the Web Content Bureau, Amalia helps maintain the Luther Alumni website. She creates events and pages, and organizes the content on the site so it’s easy to navigate and interesting for alumni to read.
I’ve learned that I’m capable of doing so much more than I thought I could. I didn't have extensive computer or web knowledge before coming to this job and was intimidated at first. I quickly learned what I was capable of and I’ve become confident in my work.
My job has taught me to accept help when I need it. There have been multiple times when I needed reminders on how to do certain tasks, and I’ve learned that it’s nothing to be ashamed of. I know my colleagues and supervisors appreciate it when I ask for help when I need it so I can do my best work.
I know it will help me to be a better worker and colleague in the future. I’ve learned how to work in a formal setting and collaborate with colleagues to do the best job that I possibly can.
Someone who is always ready to learn would do well in this position. I learn new things every day that help me become a better student worker, and I know there is so much more that I have yet to learn.
I get to work with amazing people. In this position, I’ve met faculty, alumni, and students who I would otherwise never have had the chance to meet. Plus, it’s really fun!
