Teaching Assistant needed for NUTR 170 – Careers in Nutrition

A teaching assistant is needed for NUTR 170, the Careers in Nutrition class this spring.  It is not essential that you have previously taken NUTR 170, but would be helpful.  I am looking for someone who has some experience in career development skills such as resume writing and developing a professional portfolio. Students who have completed NUTR 370 are very appropriate.  The TA for this class will help maintain attendance records, assist the students with questions about assignments and have the opportunity to listen to a variety of speakers. The class meets on Friday, 12:20-1:10 in 260 Willard.  The teaching assistant will earn one credit of  NUTR 496 which can be used as a 400 level supporting course.

This is an excellent opportunity for a student to gain some leadership experience, help improve communication skills and other professional development skills.  You will also have an opportunity to network with all of the speakers in the course.  If you are interested, please contact me by email, bre2@psu.edu, and provide a brief explanation of why you feel you would be a good candidate for this opportunity. Thank you.

Mrs. Eissenstat
