This was a work term placement only after completing my Admistative course at NSCC
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.
