What work did I do?
The sampling memo was a very good introduction to work at Lutra because I was under the guidance of both Karuna Hambammer and Tim Miskimmin who helped me through the process. I was also able to view previous sampling plans to learn the Lutra style for memo writing. Since this project I have worked on piping and instrumentation diagrams, updated cyanobacteria monitoring data and graphs, completed price estimates for a water monitoring station, and created site specific learning to operate content for wellington water treatment plants.
It was very valuable to be able to apply problem solving and communication skills gained at university to real world situations. I also enjoyed learning how to talk to clients and suppliers and saw major improvements in my excel and word ability, very transferrable skills for both university and future work.
