Lila’s Answer

I am currently an au pair so it means I take care of the kids. Usually I woke up early, prepare the kids and their snack, drop them off at school, come back at home, do the laundry, the bed, I clean, I pick them up after school, go to the park or library or museum, eat dinner, take a shower and go to bed.

Elizabeth’s Answer

I work in the real estate/ mortgage field in the vendor management department. Our inventory consists of default loans and the properties are vacant. The vendors I manage are responsible for sending contractors out to our properties to complete various types of work. Our goal is to make sure these homes remain safe sound and secure. My job is to monitor the work completed ensuring it's done timely and affordably. I am in charge of 24 states. Most of my time is spent on my computer, in meetings and some times I will travel to visit my vendor.

Anup’s Answer

I work as a Supervisor in the healthcare company. My day starts with catching up on emails. Then usually 3-4 meetings from 9am till 2pm. Depending on the type of meeting, I try to multitask and do my tasks. The meetings usually dies down after 2pm after which I get my tasks completed. Most days, I am able to log off at 5pm but there are also days where it can go beyond 7pm.

Thanks,
Anup

Robin’s Answer

I have an office job as a manager for a large corporation.

Typically I get to work between 8AM-9AM, but maybe 3 times a year I may have to come in as early as 5AM. This is because my company has global operations and shifts cover all hours. My day ends anywhere from 4:30PM - 6PM, depending on the workload. Once a month I may need to work as late as 8PM to hit a deadline.

If I don't have a meeting right away when I get in, I will spend the first 30 minutes reading and responding to emails, and reminding myself what I need to get done that day. Depending on the day, 2 to 8 hours of the day are spent in meetings. I meet with people at all levels within the company, either talking about planned changes, developing change, deploying change, or reviewing success of the change. The meetings might be in person, on the phone, or through video chat. Sometimes it's a combination of all three. My time not in these meetings is spend either preparing for such a meeting or networking. I enjoy the variety of working interdependently at times and collaborating at other times. Networking can be anything from saying good morning to someone to spending an hour observing their work to understand what they do or collecting information to provide them with to help them out. Before I leave for the day, I make sure I've read all emails in my inbox and responded to anything that requires an immediate response.

Thank you comment icon I am a Human Resources Business Partner and my days are work usually don't look the same. I help and consult with my clients on one of the most important aspects of the company, the employees! I consult with them on things like how do we up-skill our talent for the future, when we look at our employees are they paid competitively to the market we are in, how do we increase engagement on teams, and/or across the organization, have we matched the right jobs to the employees based on their skills, experience and their goals, and still encourage a collaborative and fun environment with employees working remotely or in dispersed locations. Ultimately, I partner with leaders to facilitate a positive career journey. Giselle gilman
