It really depends on the task at hand. You’ll work with Microsoft office a lot, so it is best to be familiar with that especially excel and publisher. I was responsible for coordinating NFL Play60 materials, recruiting schools and retaining former participants via mailings and phone calls. You also work with the community whether it be schools, agencies, companies, or physicians offices. There is a big focus on health related topics/issues amongst those partners. A small project I worked on was organizing a Hands Free CPR lunch and learn session with a local area company and it’s associates. Supervision was hands off for the most part but staff members were very helpful. Always good to ask questions and learn from those willing to teach you what you may or may not know.
