A typical work day with the Government of Alberta offered me many opportunities to experience varied tasks and skill sets.

Admin Assistant to Senior Health Benefits Planner (Former Employee) – Edmonton, Alberta – 29 May 2013
Day started at 730 am. Received on average 20 requests for health benefits daily. Confirmed that each request was valid and met all listed criteria. Liaised with medical and dental authorities across Alberta. Liaised with Alberta Blue Cross, Alberta Dental Services Corporation daily. Co-workers were wonderful and always willing to share their expertise. The hardest part of the job was that I could not provide for all of the clients who requested medical/dental/optical assistance. Most enjoyable part of the job was that I was extremely busy and I could provide for the majority of the client's requests.
Land Titles Office - Land Titles Senior Analyst (Current Employee) – Calgary, Alberta – 8 November 2012
There was a lot of in-house training required for this job. Production is required and you cannot proceed without knowing the applicable statutes and case law. I enjoy my current job but loved working as an Administration Assistant (my job as an Admin. Assistant ended because all administrative duties were moved to Edmonton). The people I work with are great and I never have to take work home with me.
my co-workers are the best, the benefits and hours are great.
i have been working for the government for 33 years. a change will be good.
Administrative Support (Former Employee) – AB – 10 December 2012
I was very busy from the time I arrived until I left for the day. I learned alot of very interesting things. Management was great and some of the co-workers were not. The hardest part of the job was when you had to be in more than one place at the same time, especially when we were transitioning from the old courthouse to the new one. The most enjoyable part was working at my desk and getting alot accomplished and not having to run all around the courthouse.

Worked on contracts of the sustainable resource department. Alongside contract review and data entry, basic financial auditing was also done on a daily basis. Review and ensuring that the financial transaction were completed correctly and that there were no errors in the numbers and if so that they were reported. Lots of opportunities to take on more roles was always there, which was a great way to learn more, also was one of the best parts of the job. Management was extremely helpful when it came to training and guidance at work.
