A positive and satisfying job with great chances for personal and professional progress
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Havana, Cuba – October 24, 2013
Working for UNICEF was an interesting and enriching experience, which provided opportunities to learn new things everyday. Hectic, though, but exciting and rewarding at the same time. I could get wide knowledge about the work of this UN organization in my country, the way to approach certain issues in challenging contexts, as well as how to assist with professionalism the personalities, such as Ambassadors, Representatives from sister offices or simply regular clients, that came to the office. I had the chance to make use of my skills in the different languages I speak to enable communication and coordinate meetings inside and outside the office. Furthermore, I wrote down notes in meetings, took care of the telephone calls and the Representative's e-mail correspondence, among other clerical duties. The relationship with my colleagues was excellent, based on mutual respect and support. We always worked as a real team, and although there were moments of pressure and intense activity with several projects and challenging deadlines to meet, which made the work truly hard, the fact of striving all together to reach our goals was one of the most comforting and enjoyable parts of the job.
