Green Wall Instalation a Highlight for Charmaine's Internship
Charmaine Chinyemba, a fourth-year Bachelor of Commerce student, completed her internship at The King’s University in the facilities department. While working as an office assistant, Charmaine oversaw all branches of the department including building and maintenance, purchasing, custodial care, grounds maintenance, sustainability, capital projects, energy management, fire and safety, as well as security services! This experience surprised her as she discovered how dependent other departments in King’s are on the facilities department.
In addition to the numerous areas Charmaine was involved in and all the departments she helped, Charmaine was responsible for the execution of the 2016 graduating classes’ gift: a new green wall!
By overseeing a variety of activity on campus, Charmaine improved her communication skills as well as gathered a better understanding of what leadership skills are effective through observation. These new skills allow Charmaine to feel better prepared for her future.
