I had a nice time there, learnt a lot from different cultures in the university community and how they do things. As an outsider from the province I had to learn quickly to adjust to their way of doing things and also introduce new things from my experience and bring change where necessary. Basically, I had to balance things between students, staff and outside community. Overall, it was a good experience for me and I achieved my goals with limited resources and financial support.
Long hours, no payment for overtime.
The working environment is conducive, senior personnel friendly and fair. On a typical day I would do electronic skills assessment, book necessary venues and accommodation for training. I have advanced my microsoft office skills, time management and learned year planning as well as arranging interviews for new vacancies. The work place culture includes being humble and respectful to fellow colleagues. Celebration of colleagues birthdays and teambuilding was the most memorable moments. The most difficult part about the job was to receive wages two months late.
It is relaxed and productive the management promotes growth and they are not fussy. One can actually learn a lot and grow if you are looking to advance in research and teaching and learning. I liked most about my job was that I was given time and space to work with minimal supervision
Working at the University of Limpopo(UL) its interesting and funny since you meet people from different cultural background that have different beliefs and cultural norms therefore during the time at UI learned to be patient when working with people and to work hard in order achieve the best result.
I was helping the students to perform various practicals on their daily basis. We would arrive an hour before to make sure the equipment and the chemicals are well placed.It was hard when we had to study so that we can answer the students accordingly when they ask questions more especially because i was still a student my self. what i have learned is to work with people, and to always be active and ready to answer questions.
I was working as a part time and doing 72 hours per month. A typical day will include teaching and student clinic supervision. The university has a collaborative culture. The was no hardest part of my job since I enjoyed it. Everything about my job.
Student studying chemistry, but have never worked in a field related to chemistry. Very disciplined. Dedicated to learn more and expand my knowledge in the chemistry industry. Majoring in biochemistry, and will also like to learn more in a workplace about biochemistry, and it will be a privilege to find a space that will expose me to both chemistry and biochemistry techniques.
It was good working there as i have learned many things about laboratory work and chemical analysis. The management was very encouraging every day and they taught me lot of things. i mostly enjoyed when i had to prepare solutions and demonstrate practicals for first-year students
The working culture for me needed to be worked on so that we all benefit and not only certain individual.i taught modules I never trained for. I was never inducted in to the institution even after several attempts to do do. I totally felt I am not coping with the learn as you go mentality that prevailed there. However. Finally as my specialization space started I was burnt out. I chose to leave. Rest for three months and being to look for the job I love most.
