Work Experience

I worked as a cashier at A&W for one year in high school.  I think that this was an excellent first job as it taught me how to deal with stress management and the value of team work.  During rush hour, it was be very stressful having to manage clients expectations of food quality and overall restaurant experience but I learnt to put that aside to satisfy the customers.  This is my first experience building my skills as a team worker.  In this industry you have to trust and rely on your coworkers.

A&W

Cashier

As an administrative assistant, I helped the financial agents with their day to day activities.  An example of a day to day activity that I would help with was PPSA renewals.  During my third summer at the Desjardins Business Center, I managed the digitalization of their files into the online database.  This job taught me the ins and outs of working in a business environment.  It also demonstrates my capacity to adapt to different online softwares.  Their database was relatively new and I had to figure out how to properly use it.  By the end of the summer, I created a document for the financial agents to help facilitate the digitalization of files.

2019

Following my first year at the Faculty of Law, I manage to get a job at Weaver Simmons LLP the largest firm in Northern Ontario.  I gained valuable experience working for these lawyers.  I was able to develop my legal writing and research skills, my critical thinking and problem solving skills as well as my ability to form a conclusion.  At this firm, I was able to gain experience in various legal fields such as : real estate law, wills and estates, family law, civil litigation, commercial law and corporate law.  I was even able to attend Provincial Offences Court on the orders of the lawyers.

2019-2020

For my last three semesters of school, I have been working as a student ambassador for the University of Ottawa.  This means that I give tours to prospective students and their parents, I contact the students to see if they have any questions regarding the University and I participate in events such as the Open House events.  As an ambassador, public speaking and adaptability are the keys to success.  During tours you have to be comfortable and knowledgable of your tour scripts in order to relay the proper and accurate information.  Adaptability is important because you have to be ready for any questions and any unplanned circumstances that may arise on your tour.  It's impossible to control what's going on during your tour and therefore being able to adapt and manage tough situations is a skill I have learnt as an ambassador.

I completed a student proposed internship ("SPI") at HazloLaw.  The Faculty of Law at the University of Ottawa allows students to complete internships that will count as credits towards our diplomas.  Working at HazloLaw allowed me to further develop my legal communication skills.  I had to write memorandums based on my analysis of the client files, I drafted letters and I did an overview of certain legal documents.  My interpersonal skills were by far the most developed working at HazloLaw.  I was able to witness and participate at client meetings.  This helped me open up and see the importance in maintaining and ensuring client relations.

Sportchek

Sales Associate

I worked at Sportchek during my final years of high school and I came back to work during the summer following my first year of University.  At Sportchek, I learned to develop my oral communication skills.  Throughout my life I have always been involved in many sports.  This was very useful for my job, which was to recommend the proper equipment or clothes for the customers sporting desires.  This pushed me to be more comfortable talking to customers about products and about their daily sporting routines.

Faculty of Law

During the summer and fall semester of 2020, I worked as a Dean's Tech Fellow.  This job allowed me to work with many professors to adapt the online learning experience.  I would meet with Professors to inform them on the best teaching methods for asynchronous and synchronous learning.  I would also teach tutorials on Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Brightspace and Office 365.  I was able to put my love for technology to the test and teach professors the different features available on their computers.  This job allowed me to enhance my communication skills by creating lessons and tutorials for the professors.  It also allowed me to develop my problem solving abilities because at times the professors would ask questions that I did not have the answer to and with a little research I'd be able to come up with the answer.
