the organisation creates a favourable atmosphere for hard work and gives a lot of opportunities to learn technical know-how of conducting surveys.
A typical work day starts with a meeting to review the work done and what needs to be done by the end of the day, work is divided and then everyone gets down to their own business, like the preparation of questionnaires, translations, workshops for surveyors, recruitment of field-staff, etc.
i learned to prepare manuals for the surveys,translated questionnaires and back-translated them, attended the workshops for the surveyors and other field workers and got the experience of working in a formal setting.
co- workers were very experienced in specific areas like nutrition, agriculture, health-care, etc. and very helpful in sharing knowledge and experience.
the hardest part of the job was to get things done in a limited time span, tight schedule.
the most enjoyable part of the job was that their was so much practical knowledge that could be gained.
