Day to Day

Depending on the project, each day is different. If on a long-term assignment, then day-to-day tasks might be the same. Currently, I'm on a long-term project at a client-site. Each day has its own set of deliverables; typically, I work to update a central repository of information that people from HR, Finance, IT, Payroll, Legal, etc. need. I also work to maintain an Issues Log where discussions amongst the same group on a set of issues is captured. In simple terms, I help to Project Manage.
