Skills

Skills

Able to lead in a team environment

Growing up playing hockey, I was often voted as either a captain or assistant captain of my team. The votes were done by my teammates and had to be approved by the coaches.

Able to assess and solve problems in a timely and efficient manner

While working as a maintenance worker at Heritage Pointe, I had to finish my task in time to be off the course before the golfers started. This meant if I ran into any problems, I was forced to deal with them as quickly and efficiently as possible. Not once did I have a problem with being in the way of golfers.

Able to remain calm and act in a professional manner when under pressure

I learned this skill throughout all my previous jobs and experiences, but I feel that during my time as a referee I was really able to develop this skill. Every game a referee is under pressure from both teams players, coaches, and fans to call the game as fairly as possible.
