International Affairs Directorate, Scheduling Assistant
Acting Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 1 October 2014
Not only am I already quite capable of multi-tasking, working as the scheduling assistant for the Director General for the international affairs directorate, allowed me to enhance my skills, learn how to properly and effectively work under pressure and work in team environment.
My Managment was very supportive, and prepared to encorporate new ideas and procedures to enhance daily routine, which I enjoyed bringing forward and applying.
The most difficult part of my job were some of my co-workers as a few were not adding to the team effectively. Some were rude and condescending to superiors and peers. It was difficult to engage them, or want to be near them.
Systems Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 10 July 2014
The day usually consisted of helping users with applications and passwords being the main issues. This was by phone, email or a desk side visit. I learned many of the in-house applications and the issues involved with upgrading to Win 7. The management was excellent. They were very approachable and issues could be discussed in an open manner. My co-workers were really great with a free flow of collaboration and sharing of ideas. There was no really hard part of the job other than dealing with a virus or spam attack which was very time consuming. The most enjoyable part of the job was listening to client issues, helping them and building great relationships with them. I have missed them all.
Excellent organization to work for. Great work culture/environment despite uncertainities in current climate.
