Jobs of koko'

I returned from Australia with many new experiences, unique souvenirs as well as a significantly reduced bank balance...
If my plans to travel in the next holidays are to materialise...
I need money... LOTS OF MONEY!!!

So I decided to take up one-off jobs to widen my pool of experience, besides my regular work in the evenings at Satay Kampong, and by the way...
they pay much better than regular work!
=D

p/s: I lost my regular work with Unistop & Illot cafe due to a lack of time for the employer.

JOB 2: Campus Coaching
Job Description: Campus Coach


The second job I took up was with the university's Students Services Group.

During the local & international orientations,
first-year students are given a choice to sign up for a 1 month long Campus Coach programme.

Those who sign up will be organised into groups based on their chosen university degree major.
 

The Campus Coach groups are run by trained students of the university.
During the 1 month, the group meets once a week for about an hour
& the Campus Coach chats with them & makes sure they are on track in their first month of univeristy.


I had a group of science students & out of the 11,
an average of about 4 turn up regulary each week.
I hada great time leading the group & im sure they had a great time visiting the many food places i brought them to!
All the best to you guys!

where first years come for infomation & free maps, guides, calenders & etc.
