Jennifer Therrien – LAST DAY!!!

My last day at the Chamber was bittersweet! I was sad but happy to leave because I knew I would be starting a new chapter of my life. My experience at the Chamber was one of the best experiences I have ever had and I feel like I am walking away with so much. I learned a lot about the PR world and a lot about myself. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Jennifer Therrien – Spreadsheets and more spreadsheets!

Who knew I would be using so much Excel! This week was another busy week at the Chamber! My computer skills really came into play this week. After the Inter-City Leadership Trip there was surveys conducted for each day they were there. One of my tasks this week was to take the surveys and gather all the data from them. It really took a lot of patience to go through 52 surveys. I gathered all the data in an excel spreadsheet and then that gave me all the information I needed. Another thing  I had to do was create a document of all the additional comments on the surveys. There were so many opinionated people on the trip and some of the comments were a little crazy.  I never knew I would be using Excel so much.

The next task I was to do was to create a spreadsheet of the Youth Leadership winners with all of their information on it. The next thing I had to do was a mail merger. I had no idea Excel and word were capable of all these things.  I am now able to say I completed my first mail merger. I even got to put them through the postage machine.I learned quite a lot this week and am now very comfortable with Excel!

Just a stack of the surveys I had to go through.
