Administrative Officer, Nunavut - 9 February 2018
A typical day was that I would show up earlier than everyone, start my day immediately. Get any work I couldn't finish the previous day done first. Reply to e-mails. Then the staff would arrive and the new workload began. I learned that organization is key to getting work done in a timely manner and that no matter what was thrown at me I would give my all to everything. The workplace culture was tense at times, whoever that did not distract me from my work. For me, the hardest part of the job were the slow days when I was caught up on my work or a lot of the staff was out of town so I wouldn't have a lot of meaningful tasks to do. However, the most enjoyable part of the job was loving what I did because it challenged me to think outside of the box and be creative in an otherwise uncreative atmosphere.
