A Day in a Project Office at NASA
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – August 22, 2018
A typical day at work is checking my email first thing in the morning, and responding accordingly. I typically check my calendar the night before so I know what is scheduled or planned for the following business day. I usually attend 3 - 4 meetings per week. Several meetings focus around the Project that I currently support and others are organizational type meetings. Working in a Project office has given me the opportunity to learn and understand the scope of the project. I've learned overall project governance, regulations, functions, processes, procedures and balance. I am able to understand the responsibilities that define the establishment, management and control of the project. The workplace has high employee morale, and there’s always someone that is willing to help solve a problem or answer any questions that arise. The hardest part of the job has been understanding the engineering technical talk but as I continue to engage, I’ve learned to master the structure of our project mission and structure. The Project team I work with is a great group of intelligent people.
