The Opportunity to Job Shadow at Two Different Offices…
1. One of my biggest accomplishment during my mentorship program was the opportunity to job shadow at two different offices. the first was under Lus, the assistant account payable at the DSCO office, here at UCLA. The second job shadowing I did was under George Gabballa, the Sr. Accounts Payable coordinator of the UCLA affiliated main administrating building at university village. During my time at these offices, I was taught useful clerical skills such as how to use UCLA accounting programs, check emails, answer phones and practice communication skills. I have also been offered the opportunity of job shadowing under Nina Purtell, the director of Human Resources at UCLA. There, I will be working twice a week for 2 hours each day learning more about human resources and office life. Along with Nina, I will also be shadowing under other team members. 2. Another one of the biggest accomplishments was completing two administration certificate courses though UCLA, Throughout the courses, I was given helpful tips I acquired from these courses, I will be able to develop the skill sets I need to be successful in an accounting or administration job. 3. My final accomplishment was being parts of Project Spell. This program was introduced to me by my mentor. It is a tutoring program conducted by students that is geared toward teaching English to UCLA employees. This program has really helped me to develop my speech, pronunciation, and spelling skills. these will benefit me in an office position because it will make communication easier. These accomplishments combined provided me with different skills and tools that i will be able to utilize, not only in the office, but in everyday life. Most importantly, these accomplishments lined up with my goals of this mentorship program. I was able to increase organizational knowledge and develop leadership skills amongst many others. Lastly, I have been encouraged and inspired to set goals for myself and allot a certain amount of time for me to accomplish them.
