I had a great experience with Stellenbosch University. I had a great mentor and a great team. I know not everyone might have a great experience. It is certainly hard work and time consuming but I did love what I did back then.

Besides lecturing schedule, there is no fixed work-time (flexible hours). However, academia is results driven, and as such most days are spent in the laboratory (10+ hours per day).

I worked at the department of client services, which is typically relaxed and casual. However, it was the start of the new academic year so it was demanding and challenging. I learned how to work with many diverse clients and to always be professional, communicative, calm and helpful. I learned that I flourish within a well structured work environment that brings more challenges and the ability to solve problems directly. I loved working under a leadership style that gives me autonomy.

A typical work day started early and was filled with interaction with students and academics. My job pushed me to challenge myself and presented troubleshooting on a daily basis. Time management and prioritisation was two important elements of my job which was fast paced. The campus culture allowed for growth opportunities. Management was supportive.

Busy day solving research related queries about research activities in communities, learnt patience in managing field workers and explaining research to community members who did not understand scientific research and its principles. I enjoyed community events where I got exposure to different cultures within the diverse communities we worked in.The hardest job was dealing with communities who have different political ideologies as this affected the research activities within those communities.

During my time with the company I had two different leadership roles. In both these positions I was allowed to take responsibility for the projects and programs that I wanted to develop and employ. Great learning opportunity. Highly recommend.

They the ability to train young growing engineer and they have a disciplined culture which I embrace from them.

A typical day at work is resolving administration first, followed by the preparation of samples for analysis. Throughout these tasks, you have to help students with their analyses as well which is the hardest part of the job.

A typical day at work was quite involving and required a lot of planning and execution. It helped to cultivate an attitude of careful planning and organizational attitude. Also, the work environment resulted in a good social and inter-personal relationships between workers and customers. The hardest part of work was finding a suitable place and time to fit in impromptu work but we usually ended up finding a way even during stressful and hectic days. Nevertheless, the opportunity to relate with others and help them solve their queries brought joy to us and made it worth it.

I never worked at Stellenbosch University, I was only a student. Bing a student at Stellenbosch has taught me many life and work skills. Self-leadership was a very important skill I learnt during my time here. The areas of my life that developed exponentially were my people skills, work ethics, teamwork, work and personal life capacity.

Being part of the 2015/2016 House Committee had various challenges related to politics and safety such as the Fees Must Fall Movement. Besides that, as a team, we learnt to manage, motivate, support and lead a residence of over a 150 women that is strong minded, driven and diverse. It was fun to be part of such a dynamic and diverse residence but it was also challenging to balance both the studies, leadership and social activities. However, I learnt a lot about myself and the above mentioned skills and for that I am grateful. I have used these skills in both life and work and it has changed my manner of thinking and approaching any situation.
