For your information, before becoming a lecturer assistant, you will pass the test first, if you fail, don’t give up and try again. Being a lecturer assistant will give you an additional value when you’re looking for a job and also increase communication skills which will grow your self-confidence. This communication skill can also be used to prepare for a thesis trial. So just try it first, there’s nothing to lose! ”she explained.

There are several jobs that are not known by students in general. The first job is known as “circulation”, its job is to scan a book barcode for borrowing and repayment activities. The second job is “shelving”, its task is related to rearranging the books that have been read or returned according to their shelves. The third job is “stock opname” where the library assistant will count and scan the books in the library, update the book’s quantity that are still available and place them according to the shelves. “Sometimes if the books are very messy, we do a mini stock opname, to clean up the book collections in the library,” she added.
