YEAH, ME. I’m not short on cash or anything, but I’ve definitely felt guilty this year. I’m never at my place, wasting - oh - $460/month! A very expensive back-up plan.
So I was looking through part-time job listings on the Career Center during my daily internship search and saw that the Cinema Studies program was hiring for a student assistant. The duties were varied and a mix of web and office work, but I was intrigued. I went into the interview a little hesitant of my busy schedule and with no expectations and came out wanting it BADLY. The office coordinator was funny and easygoing, and the position sounded more challenging and crazy than expected. The program is growing (for those not at UO, the major just started last year), and they needed people who could go with the flow.
That was Friday. It’s Monday. Got the call 15 minutes ago. They actually ended up hiring another girl, who also worked at Ethos, because there was so much talent. Scoped her out on FB, and she likes Harry Potter. Done.
I’m so excited! Money! A job! New references! Web! Social media! Blogging! Getting paid to do what I love for a University program is mind-boggling.
