Research Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 December 2017
This was a great place to work in. The was a general environment of convivial environment with regular office lunches where we all congregated to share a meal and take a break from the rigorous of the office. My colleague were great with willingness to help and so was our leader. The work was enjoyable as it involve application os my greatest strengths-writing reviews. I got an opportunity to meet many people from different areas of concentration. The only flaw was extensive sitting in cubicles that made it look more of clerical than a professional academic jobs.

MacEwan Ambassador (Volunteer) (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 18 April 2013
A typical day at work, was when I was asked to do a public speaking without pre- notice. It was a challenging, but I nailed it by rendering a powerful and educative speech. I learned to be always prepared, know much about your job and be willing to uphold your company at any time any day. The hardest part of the job, was the time management. I was a full time student with full school work load. It is not easy to manage the both. The most enjoyable part of the job was the 5 mintues impromptu speech with your colleagues.
Best Research Assistant Experience I could have hoped for
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – City Centre Campus – 23 March 2013
This was a fairly informal job position. Essentially I had to directly work for a professor, recruit summer students for interviews, then conduct, record, and transcribe the interviews. There were other students also working, but we rarely needed to interact, and when we did it was usually via email. Hardest part was time management as I had a high level of discretion with this job. Another difficult aspect was learning to transcribe interviews quickly, but it was a VERY good experience. Most enjoyable personally was being able to work from home (when transcribing) and working with students in a face-to-face context.
