Prodcutive as can be
A typical day starts in the morning and ends late in the evening with various activities and consultations with students and meetings.
I have acquired competency and skills related to lecturing in System analysis and design, research project coordination, research methodology, IT research project planning and supervision of postgraduate research.
People deal with management decisions on matters arising on a daily basis if necessary. However, there is room for more inclusiveness and diversification of decision making.
Work culture is reasonably acceptable. There is room for more openness and recognition of others seen as minority.
Dealing with issues that compromise the standards and lax in administrative matters.
Interacting and engaging with students, seeing their growth and understanding coming through.
Supervision and mentoring.

Administrative Secretary | Bellville, Western Cape | 12 Oct 2012
Productive and great workplace environment
A day at work comprises of dealing with student queries, both telephonically and physically, dealing with many departments day to day. I have learnt that doing your best, is evident in staff and students reactions towards me and that at times things could go wrong, but thinking of a way out is where your energy should be spent. Beacuse it is a huge institution management all sing the same song therefore it is more challenging for changes to be implemented, rules needs to be followed accordingly using the many channels. I have great co-workers, they have become my friends too. The hardest part I would say is during the student registration periods and also when procedures are not being followed and the department is unaware and students academics are affected by it. The most enjoyable part is seeing the joy in both students and staff's faces and body language once I have either sorted a query out for them or just chatting to them when needed as tech life is tough at times, so just being a friend too when needed.
Prosi am allowed to attend classes during my working day, i get extra time off for exams to be written
Consno major cons that need to be mentioned

Administrative Assistant | Mowbray, Western Cape | 20 Nov 2012
productive, busy and very stressful workplace
Dealing with all kinds of student issues ranging from a personal to a financial nature. Setting up of classroom and examination venues, assisting lecturers with administration, liasing with invigilators. I am also responsible for all office administration, liasing with service providers and other departments within CPUT. I have come to realise that as as secretary for a Higher education Institution, you become the "Jill of All trades". You become photocpy technician, electrician, caterer, counsellor, friend, all round problem solver.
I have an excellent relationship with my colleages and Academic staff and have yet to meet a challenge that I am not willing to tackle head-on. The hardest part of my job is knowing when to quit. Being slack is not part of my nature of job description. I will only ask for help if all avenues have been exhausted. The best part of the job is getting a thank you and a well done at the end of the day. Then you know that all the stress and hardship has not been in vain. My main goal is to see that the Academic process is as smooth as it can possibly be for both students and staff.
