"Something New Everyday."
Program Coordinator, Non-Profit Organization:
Pros: Earning my students' trust, supporting their academic endeavors, college counseling, celebrating their accomplishments, witnessing their graduation, listening to them, teaching them marketable skills. Administratively: helping them continue their education legally, detailed paperwork, consulting with other professionals, reasearching how to be a better asset to my program, supporting our teachers, trusting my boss. Outdoing myself today more so than yesterday. Supporting other staff even if it means foregoing some of my duties so that they can get some off-time.......There's so much I enjoy doing.....
Cons: Some lack of common/business sense; red tape nonsense; some lack of vision among our veteran Staff; some prejudice based on preconceived stereotypes......I don't want to say too much.....

"NeverEnding Multi Tasking."
Program Coordinator, Non-Profit Organization:
Don't get discouraged by vast amount of projects and responsibilities thrown on you. Realize that it is unrealistic that you will be able to accomplish all of your own set goals because your workload never ends. You may begin new projects all the time with short deadlines. Some projects end up being impossible. Some projects get cancelled mid-stream. None of these issues define you. They define your organizations goals, funding, management, cuts, and overloads.
