You will probably spend a majority of your time sitting and/or walking around the office, whether to visit a co-worker or make it to a meeting on time and there may be occasional long hours to put in if you are diligently working to complete a project and finish a report. There could be a time when you may need to lift and/or move up to 10 pounds, but not very often. Finally, there may be some light travel involved with this role!
