As a Project Specialist I arrive at work at 8 am and knock off at 5 pm. When I get to the office I look through my emails and plan for the day ahead. From there I work, and go to lunch for 30 minutes at 13h00. My day typically consist of Project Management tasks and filing. I also communicate a lot via email, IM, or telephone with colleagues in various parts in the world. I learnt a lot, particularly in managing a project and working in a team to achieve the milestones of a project. I learnt a lot regarding first time quality in what I do. I also enjoy solving project related issues, which requires of me to be in constant communication with team members on a project. The management at PAREXEL has taught me how to handle the expectations of 2 different managers. For example, I have a line manager who expects me to complete my duties for the organization, and I also work under a project manager who expects me to deliver for our project.
