As a former employee with Citizenship and Immigration Canada, I I had a great working experience and acquired many new skills t. A typical day at work consisted of me carrying out basic duties such as inputting data using GCMS, processing medical and passport files, and anything from filing to rearranging files. I learned a substantial amount of the the steps one must undergo in order to have entry in Canada as either a worker or a permanent resident. Steps such as filling out medical and passport forms which would then be reviewed by the appropriate authorities.
The staff at CIC is what made the experience highly stimulating given the amount of positive people that I had the privilege of working with. It is the staff themselves that produced motivation to the other employees to complete many tasks that an average employee may consider boring. The staff made a significant positive difference in the atmosphere of CIC.
I enjoyed a lot of the work that I was doing at CIC because it had some correlation to my Economics degree and that itself may allow me another opportunity with the government of Canada. The hardest part of my job was keeping up with the demands of management because there was a lack of organization from their end. As an employee for many establishments, I was taught to follow the rules of the individual who has the highest authority within the department I am placed to work at. At CIC, there was a lack of communication between the directors and supervisors which contributed to some complications.
As a former employee with CIC, I am still interested in pursuing another work opportunity with the government. I would like to expand my skills that will one day guide be to a bigger and better future in the Economic industry.
