Helping Others in need
Program Clerk (Former Employee), Truro, NSApril 12, 2014
Pros: helping others
Cons: not being able to help everyone
Providing assistance in delivery Housing Grants to lower income families and Seniors is very rewarding. Knowing you have helped those in need is one of the most rewarding things in life. You cannot judge people at any time. Work very closely with your co-workers. Hardest part of the job is telling someone they do not qualify. Things go smoothly when all parties are on the same page and back you up when a decision has to be made.

Work Term
Computer tech (Former Employee), Halifax NSAugust 20, 2013
Pros: day job.
Cons: not much to learn here.
This was so long ago it's tough to remember. I do remember it was a work term, and it was day hours, but I didn't learn very much on it, and was happy to get back to class.

This was a work term placement only after completing my Admistative course at NSCC
Administrative Assistant/Clerk (Former Employee), Dartmouth, NSJuly 4, 2013
Pros: seeing newborn babies get adopted into a loving home.
Cons: hearing stories of how badly some children have been treated, and then taken away from their parents.
The typical day at the Department of Community Services was covering the reception desk for breaks. This include answering the phones, greeting clients. I also typed notes from a Dictaphone to their database, filed, fax and photo copied documents.

The most enjoyable part was the people that worked there, they were very friendly and seemed very happy to have the other students and myself help them out in their very busy office.
