Working as an RA is a smart way to equip you with valuable skills and experience while working as part of a dynamic, diverse team. Employers and graduate programs are looking for people with a strong collegiate experience – both in and out of the classroom. Being an RA can give you a significant advantage in a competitive job market. You will receive extensive training in leadership, communication, project management, and crisis response. You will be entrusted with a great deal of responsibility and challenged in significant ways. Your supervising RLC will also work with you to help market these skills as you prepare to apply for your internships, jobs, or graduate school.
