Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 12 August 2016
A typical day of work consisted of setting up experiments for the lab. I developed good language skills towards instructing first-year students basic courses in Biology. Management is terrible in this place, the science building is collapsing and seems to be a very bureaucratic place to make an impact to Newfoundlanders. Co-workers are good, in my area all of us young and enthusiastic. The hardest part of the job is not getting paid enough, compared to other major Universities in Canada MUN, pay grades are low. The must enjoyable part of the job is the flexibility.

Auxiliar de Pesquisa (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 3 December 2015
Participei de trienamento para manuseio de produtos de laboratório e, após o treinamento, passava a maior parte do dia no laboratório realizando experimentos da pesquisa. Havia pouca relação interpessoal com os demais colaboradores, sendo que os momentos de interação eram sempre agradáveis. Aprendi a importância de realizar as atividades com extrema competência e concentração, uma vez que atividades específicas de uma importante pesquisa estavam sendo confiadas a mim. A parte mais difícil do trabalho foi a rápida necessidade de costume com diferentes culturas (colaboradores de países diferentes); A parte mais agradável foi a oportunidade de aprendizado não somente profissional, mas também pessoal.

Intermediate Clerk Stenographer (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 13 May 2015
I worked in accounts receivable. I learned so much about accounting and learned many software applications. I enjoyed my work environment and co-workers. Contacting clients regarding overdue payments was the hardest.
Post doctoral fellow (Former Employee) – Toronto, Canada – 17 April 2015
I learned a lot. It was very stimulating environment however involved a lot of hard work. Coworkers were friendly and helpful in general. The research work in the lab was very enjoyable. However, the guidance from the supervisor was not up to the mark and therefore the hard work was not properely steared to obtain the publishable results.
