Hello my name is Ryan Casey. I am a junior at Winona State and I am studying Geoscience with a geology emphasis and I am also minoring in geographical information systems (GIS). The related classes that I have taken include watershed science, organismal diversity, and advanced hydrology. I am seeking an internship to learn more about our lakes and our invasive species. I am also looking to gain experience working in the field and build up a strong resume for post-graduation.
For this job, I worked with a team of individuals to set up and also take down tents, including drop off and pickup of many other products including tables and chairs. I also worked as a semi-regular foreman where I was trusted to lead small crews to set up and take down backyard sites. At this job, I gained experience working with a team and also how to lead effectively. This job required work under any condition, including lightning, and also required long work days up to 15 hours.
For this custodial job, I was responsible for ensuring clean and safe classroom environments. I also assisted the grounds crew where I gained experience using power tools. After my first summer, I was entrusted to train new employees.
