My Professional Strengths

“The strength of a man's virtue should not be measured by his special exertions, but by his habitual acts”

As technology is constantly growing you have to be willing to accept what makes you an asset or a liability in any given situation you may encounter in your life. The qualities and traits that I feel make me a valuable entity to my employers, co-workers, classmates and within my personal relationships are varied. On a daily basis, I am challenged with a multitude of situations that I must prioritize and resolve in order to move ahead. Through these experiences, I have developed the ability to juggle these situations in a timely and satisfactory manner. Thus, making me a multitasked individual capable of handling a variety of rigorous tasks. Multitasking enables me to be more productive within a demanding atmosphere.

I pride myself on my customer service skills and my ability to resolve what could be difficult situations. I am enthusiastic, dedicated, honest and patient. On a related note, I also have strong communication skills which help me work well with customers, team members and executives
