Graphic Designer (Former Employee) – Greater Sudbury, ON – 23 February 2017
I worked at Science North on a 5 month contract filling in for their most senior graphic designer, who was on leave. It was an amazing place to work where every day was a new challenge. The marketing unit I worked in was a very cohesive group made up of various age groups.
While I was their I learnt a lot about some of the newer marketing trends with the use of social media.
The most difficult part of the job was managing expectations that other departments had in regards to time frames for getting various jobs printed.
I really enjoyed the opportunity to help launch new exhibits at the Science Centre and to contribute as a photographer as well as a designer.
Discounts at other Ontario museums and Science centres
Cashier / Sales Clerk (Former Employee) – Sudbury, ON – 12 April 2016
My typical day was getting to meet a variety of different people around the world and getting to interact with them. I was always learning new ways to interact with different cultures and how to handle things with different customers. My management was great, they where easy going and a lot of fun. Also, my co-workers where amazing as well, we always had a fun time and there was never a dull moment. The hardest part was that if there was more then one french customer in the store, I was the only one able to speak french so I was always the one handling them. Overall, the most amazing part of my job was getting to meet so many new people from around the world.
