Relevant Skills

Working in the lab during my college and university career, I

have had to work independently to complete an experiment. This
has allowed me to excel at working self-sufficiently.
The lab experiments in my analytical techniques class at Durham
College have taught me how to maintain a clean and organized
lab bench. We learned how to properly clean and handle lab
equipment, as well as safe disposal and handling of chemicals in
the lab.
I have learned to work quickly and efficiently in a fast-paced
environment by working in the lab and having to complete an
experiment in a small period of time.
I developed a strong attention to detail in the lab, with no
experimental errors.
Working as an office assistant made me proficient at using
various types of computer software such as, Microsoft Word,
Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. This has given me experience
with preparing reports and recording data.

In my chemistry and environmental science classes at Durham

College and Trent University we did water testing experiments,
some of these tests include; pH, conductivity, chloride and
sulphates tests, flame tests, and tested for water
