AS COLLEGE STUDENTS WE ARE STRUGGLING WITH
BECOMING INDEPENDENT AND PROVIDING FOR
OURSELVES, WHICH CAN BE DIFFICULT WITHOUT HAVING A
JOB. THE BOOKSTORE HAS HELPED MANY STUDENTS WITH
THIS STRUGGLE BY PROVIDING THEM WITH JOBS THAT NOT
ONLY PROVIDE PAY, BUT AN EXPERIENCE THAT WILL ALLOW
YOU TO TRANSITION INTO A CAREER AFTER COLLEGE.
internship with Macy's. The Bookstore providing their students with a
faculty fellow was definitely one of the reasons my application for this
position could be improved. I also had the privilege of meeting BCBG's
college recruiter who opened my eyes to the endless career goals I can
hope to achieve. If it weren't for the Bookstore's efforts, I would have
never been granted these opportunities. Just by walking into the store I
would have never imagined how much impact they could have on their
students.
Another great aspect of the Bookstore is the fact that you are given a
chance to work with people your age who are also going through college
and working to balance their academics and work schedules. Students
working at the Bookstore began as my mentors, transitioned into my
peers, and finally grew into becoming my very best friends. I can say that
working on projects with multiple students has allowed me to understand
the importance of a team and realize that in order to succeed, a work
environment must allow for these strong relationships to be built. Our
Bookstore employs over 200 people each "rush" season, which allows
students to train one another and build their own leadership skills by
helping new hires achieve the same experience they have had. By hiring this many employees, the Bookstore is the place on campus that
each student knows they are able to apply to. As college students we
are struggling with becoming independent and providing for ourselves,
which can be difficult without having a job. The Bookstore has helped
many students with this struggle by providing them with jobs that not
only provide pay, but an experience that will allow you to transition
into a career after college. Students walk away with valuable tools that
allow for success. Students have the ability to apply for management,
assistant buying, licensing, accounting, and human resources positions.
These positions offer knowledge on specific areas that can be helpful
for future employers. Students who wish to remain sales associates can
also be apart of obtaining this knowledge by working with their supervisors to participate in meetings with vendors, build purchase orders,
and much more.
The University of Arizona Bookstore provides students with an experience unlike any typical college job. So many students graduate from the
university being able to say that they were taught many different skills
at the Bookstore. My experience has been one amongst many, and I
would never change applying for this job. My job here has allowed me to
recognize and develop my strengths, and I look forward to seeing what
else is in store for me. I will never be able to thank my managers and
coworkers enough for this experience. Overall, The University of Arizona
Bookstore provides students and employees with an experience that
is nothing short of amazing. Every day they prove that their store is not
only a bookstore, but also a place for students to receive much more
than just a textbook.
