Edmonton is very supportive of career development and training. The City encourages us to take ongoing professional-development courses and attend conferences to meet accounting-designation requirements and be up to date on new accounting rules that we can then apply in our work. The City also provides a number of soft-skill courses like communications and interpersonal skills, and computer applications training.

Every few years, I have an opportunity to take on a new job and learn some new things, and meet new people. In the past, I have enjoyed being involved with engineers on some key projects, such as the building of City Hall. Also, being involved in the growth and change in the City's waste management processes that have made us a world leader. It's driving around the City and being able to say you have been a contributor to so many of the City's projects and initiatives.
