Data Capturing in Bloemfontein, Free State
on 14 October 2021
Fun Workplace
Different duties everyday... But basically we had to Capture data and update the statistics of covid19 patients. For us we had to connect computers everyday, cause the equipment we used wasn't of the Department of Health.

Organized with good resources
My point of view with WHO all I can say is that is a good place to work for, I have developed a new skill of being multitask in an advanced way. Being more disciplined and responsible. Manage pressure yet deliver accordingly. Learn different cultures and know more about Health issues and the role played by the department of Health Word wide. Management is good and recognizes the contributions of each and every staff member from top to bottom. Language challenge since I am coming from another province but I am willing to learn it and it also advancing my communication in terms of languages.I am also learning the international language which is part of the requirements if you work for the United Nations.
