If you’ve ever looked for upcoming events on Luther’s Music department website, then you’ve experienced part of Ben’s work. His primary role is to update the events web page and make sure information for recitals, concerts, and other department events is accurate.
I’ve been working in the music office since my sophomore year. Last year, my supervisor asked me if I would be interested in helping to expand the events web page so that more detailed information could be added.
I now consider myself experienced in working with websites, something I knew nothing about previously. I’ve gained networking skills since I have to be in constant contact with ensemble directors and professors for information about their concerts and recitals.
There's always someone having fun in the music office. Recently there has been a rubber lizard that hides in various places around the office.
I plan on becoming a high school orchestra director and my experience in advertising for concerts, designing web pages, and communicating with educational faculty will certainly be a benefit.
My position requires someone who plans ahead, pays attention to detail, and is organized.
My work study allows for a lot of flexibility in terms of when I work. I set aside a certain amount of time each week, but if I need more time to study for a test, I can always move the work to a different day. I just have to make sure to cover all of the events coming up in the next few weeks.
