I am given tasks according to my ability and I am always challenged to go out of my comfort zone to develop my abilities. Volume of tasks can often become overwhelming as numerous urgent tasks can unexpectedly pop up, requiring other tasks to be put on hold.

My main day-to-day responsibility is to coordinate the engineering changes that the contractors proposed and to ensure the relevant subject matter expert (SME) from the stateside provide their feedback on time. It's great because I get the access to all the design documents from the contractors and can discuss with the SMEs. It's a great opportunity to learn.

It's not well defined. Sometimes I'm working as a software specialist, other times drafting engineering documentation, other times taking minutes. I understand that a workplace needs to be agile, however these skills didn't require me to get a degree and are super mundane. I would love to have a chance to put my skills to work.
