CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR GRADUATION, MICHAL!!
Michal is getting a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and plans to return to Chicago to begin his job search. He would like to get a job as a software engineer or in computer security or IT. He plans to stay in the Chicago area close to his family.
Michal began working for the Engineering Library the first semester of his junior year. His favorite memory from work is the huge rush during finals week and “I had to make about a hundred mugs of coffee.”
He enjoyed working with Robert “Bo” Smith IV – they were roommates and have been friends for “a super long time.” He added, “Carol was also my favorite because she was always so fun to talk to.”
Michal says that working in the library has helped to work in an office setting for the first time and that it taught him to manage his time very well. James Cox, Michal’s supervisor, said that he was “a terrific employee who has always been eager to jump in to help library guests and other staff members as needed.”
“I’m going to miss everyone so much,” Michal added. We’re going to miss him, too!
The Engineering Library staff wants to all our student employees, without them it would be difficult to keep the library open and impossible to provide as many services as we have during this unusual school year! This class of graduating seniors was hired before the Pandemic started, navigated the University closing in March 2020, and returned to work for the 2020/2021 school year with vastly different responsibilities from when they were hired.
