LEARNING EXERCISE IC: FOCUS ON WORKThe most striking thing about my job is that there are new challenges everyday such that one has to be equipped with up to date information on financial happenings as it is relevant to the various tasks I am assigned.
The working environment is conducive since it’s an open office system. The staff in the office is respectful and people try as much as possible to live in peace. The working hours are extensive since there is a lot of work that need to be done within a short time frame.
This is negative in the fact that there is less breaking hours and thus lead to stress. There were various projects that I headed, one of which was making a magazine for the organization and at that time I had no educational background of the processes. This eventually emerged to be a successful project since there was a good team behind it and all the responsible parties were collaborative.
