CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF PEST CONTROL ADVISORS, Sacramento, CA 2006 – 2008 Executive Assistant to President/CEO

I recruited, interviewed and hired office staff; balanced sales and financials both weekly and monthly. I hired and trained new customer service agents, motivated and monitored staff and dealt with customer service department issues. I helped to build business opportunities by researching potential investment opportunities (real estate, businesses). I also organized the monthly staff meeting, company events and promotions and worked with branch and assistant branch managers with crew functions. .

• I was hired as a Project Assistant, prepared and maintained procedure manuals, transmittal's, and project notes, and monthly reports. I ordered materials for onsite delivery to hotel renovation locations, wrote purchase orders and change orders and kept logs. During this time, I found the bidding department was still using pencil and calculator. I devised an Excel spreadsheet that incorporated all the information they needed

(cost, cost plus 10, etc.) by entering their numbers into one column. It saved quite a bit of work and frustration, and resulted in reducing hours of time spent making bids.
