Working at Suncor Energy Inc gave me the opportunity to develop and apply my project and facility management skills. I worked as a Short Range Planner within the Facilities Planning & Projects division. I worked exclusively on planning and executing projects within the company’s Mining Business Unit.
A typical day at work would begin with arriving at work on the company shuttle bus with my colleagues. After checking my email, and voice messages, our team would have a weekly meeting. This meeting would review current projects, safety concerns, and allow us to discuss challenges. Next, I would work on compiling project documents for new Request for Proposals (RFPs). This would involve writing the RFP, preparing drawings, developing the project schedule and budget, and communicating with the client as needed.
In the afternoon, I would take the bus shuttle to the main site outside of town to conduct project walkthroughs, discuss and resolve onsite project issues, and review projects with my Project Coordinator. Finally, I would end the day with arriving back at my workstation to reply to any emails and voicemails that arrived throughout the afternoon.
