As a student at the University of Michigan-Flint Social Work Program I have maintained a 3.25 overall grade point average and in my major I have maintained a 3.8 grade point average.  I also belong to the PHI ALPHA honor society through the Social Work program which is a nationally recognized honors program that helps to introduce students to a more political view of social work..  I am also a member of the Social Work club which integrates the Social Work profession and the community involvement aspect of what our degree will focus on.  I will graduate with honors in April with a Social Work degree and a minor in substance abuse therapy. 


To find gainful employment that will excercise my acquired collegiate knowledge base and help to continually broaden those experiences. 


I am an entry level bachelor's degree graduate with a strong desire to prove to an employer that I can be the employee they want to hire and to retain.  I have had a variety professional experiences and I posess a very strong work ethic and a can do attitude.  This has been displayed at all of my previous jobs. I have risen to a supervisor, trainer, or department head at many of my jobs in the food service industry.  I have the dedication and ability to succeed in any environment.  I have finished my degree while working more than full time, completing an internship, and also maintaining a household all of which demonstrates my ability to multitask and still provide quality work and enthusiasm.  I look forward to discussing any opportunities your company may have.
