From Inception to Execution
In 2011, the NYPL celebrated the centennial of its landmark building on 42nd St. To mark the occasion, the Education, Programs, and Exhibitions department organized a major exhibition, a season of events in the branch libraries, and a weekend-long festival with high-profile performances, games, and talks. As the project manager in the department, I worked on multiple projects simultaneously to coordinate related activities, exchange information, and manage details.
Take on a Challenge
When I was hired as a financial analyst, I had no accounting or finance training. I quickly learned about budget planning, applied my knowledge of Excel to financial data, and used my interpersonal skills to hold productive meetings with department heads. Over the course of six months, I helped ten departments manage their budgets, accommodate unanticipated changes, and plan for the coming fiscal year.
Stay Ahead of Deadlines
It takes planning and monitoring to meet deadlines. As project goals shift, challenges arise, and tasks are completed, deadlines sometimes need adjustment. In my professional, graduate school, and volunteer work I use schedules, project timelines, and lists to track progress, and I communicate when adjustments are necessary. With these methods, I deliver on time.
