Randy Qattalik // Junior Systems Analyst // Iqaluit, Summer 2019

I joined the Financial Systems Management division as a Junior Systems Analyst with the Department of Finance. It was an important development as I started my first summer student position five years ago. I accumulated learning experiences each year and I now assist and train other Finance employees.


Hayley Maghagak // Payroll Assistant // Cambridge Bay, Summer 2019

I was a Payroll Assistant with Finance's Pay and Benefits division in Cambridge Bay. I had the chance to learn how to archive, enter and verify time sheets and files. My experience was challenging at times, but I learned a lot. I hope to be back again!
