Major: International Relations Assisting the Campaign Manager with absentee voter contact, yard sign organization, volunteer organization, data entry and community outreach. I also worked on email and social media organization, research and writing tasks, design work, and media tracking. Operations management, scheduling, data entry, mailings, research, and various project management jobs.
Major: Sports Leadership I was the head coach for the Varsity Elite team. My job was to plan and create practices that will contribute to the growth of players' fundamentals, and their Lacrosse IQ's. I was in charge of travel, which was driving rental vehicles, and making sure coaches arrive safely and on time to the sites of their games.
Major: Health Professions During my internship, I rotated through the hospital. I spent most of my time in finance, patient support and cardiac with some days observing labs, conferences, and the play room. Most of my work in finance was based around getting new bills from the post, sorting them and putting them into the computer. In the cardiac department, I spent a lot of time updating charts and making sure they charts are where they are supposed to be in the hospital. I observed some cardiac conferences about patients and planning their treatment. I also observed some cardiac cath procedures. During my time in patient support, I helped release copies of patient charts requested under the Freedom of Information act. I also logged complaints, compliments, thank you cards and parliamentary questions on the database. I visited the microbiology, histology, biochemistry and hematology labs for a few hours each lab to get a taste of what they do and how it is important. Because I didn't have a degree, they couldn't let me do any work in those labs, as that is customary in Ireland.
