“I just love it here. I started with Facilities Management nearly seven years ago and now work in Capital Projects Management as a business manager. My coworkers and I handle onboarding, meeting scheduling, contract administration, and more so that our design and project delivery managers can focus on improving buildings across our five campuses.
“The people here are fun, interesting, and team-oriented. I get to work with people across the University system, and everybody is willing to help me with whatever questions I have. In the building I work in, we get together for potlucks, Community Fund Drive events, even stretching breaks. There’s good work-life balance too, so I have plenty of time to enjoy Minnesota’s seasons.
“I moved to Minnesota for the winter. The silence a snowfall brings is beautiful, and I find it soothing to be indoors as the snow falls. I also enjoy ice skating and walking in the snow with my dog, Reggie.
“The University is like a small city. We have such a wide spectrum of people working here and a variety of job opportunities. Whatever your talent, you can put it to good use at the U.”—Janee Meyers, Business Manager, P&A
Favorite place on the Twin Cities campus: the pink granite fountain at Lilly Plaza
