We asked some of the University of Ottawa’s student staff, what they liked about working on campus, here is what we gathered:

Héloise Massé, 4th year Nutrition student and fitness attendant:

I love the flexibility of the job, the fact that I can schedule shifts between my classes and that it is located right on campus! The staff is great and I like that I get to interact with many different people. This job is also a great opportunity to improve on your second language.

 Micaela Narine, 4th year Psychology student, fitness attendant and summer camps counsellor:

I love how understanding and accommodating coworkers and managers are. This job allows you to schedule shifts between classes in the way that best suits your other commitments. My favorite part of this job is meeting new people and making new friends! I also love getting to see client’s progress and that I get to help make their gym experience better.

Emil Al-Kadi, Biomedical Sciences graduate, fitness attendant, summer camps counsellor:

What I truly enjoyed about this job is the many opportunities it gave me within the university. Whether it was supervising rec shifts, writing articles for the GeeFeed, working for the Gee-Gees’ summer camps, or networking with employees of different faculties during the IFSC, I truly enjoyed the experiences they brought. Working as a fitness attendant taught me valuable lessons that helped develop my character. 

Our takeaways: working at the University is convenient and accommodating and allows you to meet people, to network and provides opportunities for professional and personal development.
