Not one day has been the same so far, which is an exciting part of my job.
My team is made up of people from across the globe, and I use our online collaboration tools to work seamlessly together. I normally use the time zone difference to my advantage, and catch up on e-mails from the evening before, make a list of what I need to get done for the week, and update any long-term timelines as necessary.
Once I meet with the project manager, I start providing any deliverables my client has requested, and ensuring our program is successfully running. This includes change management efforts, knowledge translation, and addressing ad hoc requests.
