Productive, communal, learning opportunities
Consultant (Contract), Project Associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 4, 2018
I have a variety of tasks; being on the project management team, we assist with planning events. Some of my tasks include creating signage, collating documents and folders, setting up the event itself (tables, chairs, etc…). I occasionally pull reports for data, create labels and nametags, and volunteer at many other team events. I have learned things about project managing but also about working in the corporate world, considering this is my first corporate job. My supervisors are great, they push me to try new things and be open to new opportunities; unfortunately, on our specific team, there is not much room for advancement. They encourage my colleagues and I to search for permanent positions on one of the many other teams that the D.O.E has. The workplace culture is great; people are kind and respectful and are willing to help you learn. The hardest part of the job is being on a contract and not knowing when they may no longer need you. Another difficult part is the pay; the cost of living is extremely high in NYC and the pay, though it is better than most jobs that I have had, is still not enough to move. The best part of the job is the community and the areas where you can learn and advance.
