I was the assistant to the Director and therefore my work was to check that everyone in the different departments were caring out the work efficiently which they were allotted by the manager and the Director. I carried out all the instructions to the employees which were given by the Manager and Director and the process of communication to the employees working in the different departments became smoother and therefore the work was completed on time.
I developed a good team spirit and a virtual understanding with my team members and therefore the work was completed smoothly without any mistakes and delays. I and my team members had good interaction as during free time we used to discuss about our likes, football and IPL and off course a healthy team spirit which was very beneficial to the company.
My team members always asked me for suggestion to solve a particular problem like marketing and finalising the location of the event; therefore I used to do research and find out the solutions or tell the team members an alternative and I would also give the Director various suggestions about how to solve the problem or problems in the future. I also developed the skill to find solutions and also research skills and by my skills improving and developing the burden of the Director and the manager reduced as I used to tell and suggest them different methods how to handle the matters. As with my suggestion the work burden became less and all the departments started to work efficiently and the work started to finish before the deadline.
