You just graduated this past may around if you're watching this is you um not to call you out, but uh he explained to me very early on in his career that uh there's. Nothing that you can work in dining because his major was computer science and um. I went in my teaching mode and started talking about some of the other things that you can learn here, number one for him. Customer service. We didn't have any of that background so uh after he went to his first big boy job interview. He said tiffany. They talk to me For an hour and only one question was about computer science, the rest of it was about uh customer service. So he was a little shocked that maybe I was right about that. Um but he learned alot in his time here about how to speak to people um improve his communication skills the customer service aspect of it then you work learn alot about team work um. I had never worked anywhere with this. Many people and just the things you learn with getting along with others being professional um being respectful being courteous, living the k-state values and the dining values and then there's the work ethic. We teach you how to um You'll be responsible for your shift in your position and the responsibilities um and some time management things and I will teach you how to have fun on the job. Um dining services is really unique. You will never ever work somewhere. Exactly like a dining Center on campus ever trust me um so it's just a really fun place and we have a lot of things that we hope we can teach you so with that I think you heard as much as I can share with you during this time about our student experience And we really look forward to seeing you in the fall whether it's you coming in here and eating in a serving you food or coming in as an employee.
