Research Analyst, Ontario Treasury Board Secretariat
January 2017 - August 2017

After working for the University of Waterloo, I managed to get enough experience and skills to be a competitive applicant for an analyst position at the government of Ontario. Being the first job that was directly relevant to my future career goals, this was an important step for me and I tried my best to learn as much as I can from this experience. Luckily, my team was quite supportive of my learning and skills goals. They let me work on many varied tasks regarding supporting the planning and capital policy of major infrastructure projects in Ontario.

During my time here, I was able to write briefing notes, edit and support the production of PowerPoint decks, and analyze fiscal data tables in Excel. Lastly, I was also given the opportunity to present to various senior executives in the government, advising them on key infrastructure initiatives.

Research Assistant, University of Waterloo Secretariat & Office of General Counsel
May 2016 - August 2016

This position was the first Co-op job that I found, and it was certainly an amazing experience to work with the University of Waterloo. While working here, my main goal was to create a comparative framework for analyzing the University of Waterloo Act, which is a piece of government legislation that dictates how the University is run and governed as well as the purpose of the Univeristy. I also got to work on a few research projects involving risk management and legal compliance I managed to learn a lot of stuff from my time here.

Overall, this position was a really great introduction to the types of positions that the University offers in the Co-op program and very convenient too as it was located right on campus. 

Team Lead, Canada's Wonderland, Food & Beverage Department
May 2015 - September 2015

I spent the summer after my first year at the University working at Canada's Wonderland again as a service associate. This time, however, I was given the responsibilities of a team lead after the former lead left their position. Being a team lead allowed me to gain some experience managing and supervising a small team of people, as well as complete some administrative duties such as scheduling, ordering goods, and analyzing revenue and profits for that day. 

What I really liked about this position was how close-knit our team was. Most of us were students from university or high school and we all bonded together really well. We oftentimes went out together after work and I still talk to a few of them. The position was really demanding, as we were out in the sun up to 12 hours a day, but time passed quickly due to the fun work environment. As an added bonus, employees got free unlimited admissions to the park, so I was able to enjoy the rides whenever I was not on a work shift.
