Office: Physical Education, Athletics and Recreation (PEAR)
Position: Intramural Basketball Czar
What do you do in this position?
Every term there is an Intramural (IM) basketball league which my job is to organize games. My job is to create schedules for both games and the scorekeepers. In my position, I become the point person who team captains and others contact for more information or if there are any problems.
How did you get your position?
I was asked to join a team my winter term of sophomore year and ever since then I kept with the team and play every term. I found out about this position through the team captain who also was an IM Czar at the time. I expressed interest and it was awesome that my captain had already put in some good word for me with Mikki Showers (my supervisor) so I was offered the job and took it.
What new skills have you acquired?
Becoming a Czar has taught me to become more organized especially when it came to getting schedules out on time, communicating with all the students about IM basketball starting, and making sure things ran smoothly. Other than that, I think it has also helped me get to know my peers a little better on and off the court.
How will your student employment experience help you in your future?
I believe that this job experience will allow me to effectively communicate with my co-workers, be very organized and work in a fast paced environment, and be able to step up into a leadership role.
What type of person do you feel is best suited for this position?
Those who are great at communication and able to get along with their peers would be really great at this job. Someone who is very organized and stays on top of getting schedules and word about IM basketball on time would also be great.
What do you like best about your student employment position?
The best part about this position is that I have gotten to know many of my peers. I get to have it all. I get to play the sport I love, play with the people I meet, and do my job more effectively because I experience it first hand.
