I have extensive experience in many aspects of business operations sales, and customer service, including business management, employee supervision, and customer relations, and desire to locate a position which will effectively make use of these skills, as well as my extensive computer experience, ability to work independently, and excellent organizational abilities. I build good rapport with my customers, and my learning curve in acquiring new information is a very short one. My approach to sales is a consulting one, as I endeavor to determine the genuine needs of the customer, and to match them as closely as possible with the products and services that are available. Regarding my personality traits in the workplace, in normal circumstances, my communication and organizational skills are excellent, my normal mode of operation. In situations that involve increased stress and/or expectation, my fallback trait is one of “get the job done successfully”. My desired salary range is $50,000 or above, which is needed to meet my current financial obligations.

My approach to problem-solving is from “The OZ Principles” - “See It, Own It, Solve It, Do It”.
