Dr. Steven McNeel here, in Boise, Idaho, retired and seeking additional income to supplement my Social Security and teacher’s pension. My mortgage payment is going up soon, and I hope to visit my children and grandchildren more often while living in Boise.
I am a quick learner. My education/training is in several areas: K-12, adult school, college and university classroom, and corporate marketing, training, and auditing and consulting. This experience prepared me well for your job of Customer Service Representative.
I had a twelve-year corporate career, utilizing my flexibility in content delivery. This involved classroom teaching, along with teaching one-on-one, consulting, and auditing. In my teaching and corporate careers, I developed skills in supervision, presentations, strong oral and written communications, computer use, and organization. My flexibility supported by multiple skills creating my dynamic professionalism.
I began my business career as a computer programmer trainee in Chicago. Within twelve years, I had progressed to mid-level management, stationed outside of New York City, with nationwide responsibility for marketing, training, and supervising staff at multiple locations.
I hope to hear from you. I remain,
your most Humble Servant,
Dr. Steven C. McNeel

Customer Service Representative
A part- or full-time position at an educational institution utilizing my talents, while allowing me to pursue research. Or, a corporate position displaying my communications, marketing, organizational, research, training,
and management skills.
This philosophy should serve as both a capstone of previous learning experiences and a launching pad as a life-long learner. First, content should be understandable and presented so that it invites open discussion. Second, this process should translate content as a meaningful part of a students’ thinking. Third, it should complete our citizenship training. And fourth, education and training should be presented flexibly addressing their learning styles and circumstances. This latter point is where technology plays a role.
