A typical day in the office is extremely busy.I have learnt to manage my time effectively in that my work is spread out over different tasks all of which are equally urgent. The management in my department are understanding, caring and dedicated to improving the staff education. The culture is one that embeds all different cultures and people and is very open to different people and their ways of life .The most difficult part of my job is getting Academics and top management to understand Risk and accepting it as pert of their reporting process.Is dealing with people from different backgrounds and learning how to address each individual
Student Assistant (Former Employee) – Johannesburg, ZA – 18 February 2019
I learned about time management, company culture and values. The company culture is more based on diversity, all workers are expected to respect each other differences. The most enjoyable part of my job was to have the opportunity to meet with great lectures (PhD) to discuss about projects and receive guidelines for personal development.
Learned a lot of administrative work Dealing with clients (Students) Assisting students with applying and registration processes Can generate student fee profoma, proof of registration, student confirmation letters, renewal of visa letter as well as academic transcripts
The experience was a first exposure to design as Civil engineering final year student. The school organised an external company as a client to the students to design a suspended mono rail system as one of the modes of transport in South Africa. As students we were under supervision of the external supervisors, which are Qualified professionals in all specialties of Civil engineering field, as well as the professors within the University itself.
We were divided in groups. in which we have to choose between all civil engineering subdivisions that we would like to specialise in individually. I was specialising in the field of transportation and hydraulic engineering. In transportation engineering i specialised in design of vertical and horizontal curves for the rail track of the monorail system, i also did transportation planning for the system and design pavement for the depot of main stations for the parking capacity. under hydraulic engineering is designed the water suppy and sewer design by integrating to the existing infrastructure. Furthermore, i designed stormwater management and haversting system for the substations and depots as well along the track itself.
What is enjoyed the most was the integration of all engineering disciplines and interaction with other members to come with one objective that we can present and make sense out of it to the client. I learned that as engineers we need to work with each other to achieve and accomplish the objective of the project, and the exchange of ideas as well.
good interaction with other engineers, complex thinking and detailed solutions
Tutor at the Law Faculty for Introduction to Law (Former Employee) – Johannesburg, ZA – 25 January 2019
Academic professionalism by people who have realized that South Africa has an Education problem but instead of turning a blind eye to the problem and incidentally contributing to it by only permitting academic acceptance to students who already have an undergraduate degree - UJ seeks to bridge that academic gap through the implementation of a successful tutor base for Law Students right up until completion of the LLB Degree.

Volunteer team manager (Former Employee) – Auckland Park Kingsway Campus, Gauteng – 2 January 2019
Handled all the administration of players,would sometimes help the coaches set up the pitch for training. On a good day when parents have shown up in great numbers during the training sessions it was a good platform to get their opinions, complains, critics and inputs then I further took them up to senior management.
We worked as a three legged pot support system...parents,players and management. It created a unique warm culture considering the age differences and ethnicity. The greatest part was working with the young boys and hearing their thinking as well as dreams. Hardest part was the long procedures that took place in order for decisions to be made.
