The paper will discuss my work experiences and current job.
Last semester I worked as a Human Resource assistant in my college. This position opened me to a wide range of opportunities and made me understand the following roles of Human resource assistant. First, I came to know college assistant maintain work structure and update the job description. Secondly, I learnt how payment plan is maintained by conducting periodic pay surveys, conducting job evaluation, preparing pay budgets, and hearing and resolving workers’ grievances. Additionally, I came to realize the significance of conducting and establishing training and orientation program for college employees.
Currently, am working as an Information System manager in the same college. Have also enrolled for a higher diploma in Information System. As a result, I do not have much time to work because of too many classes. Additionally, my current job calls for commitment because effective running of the college depends on the nature and efficient of installed computer systems. Therefore, have to ensure back up systems are in good condition and operate efficiently.
