This positions is ideal as it will provide me with the experience that I will further use and develop in the future.

I believe I am the right candidate for this position due to my extensive prior experience in customer service, the high standards I hold in my work ethic, my mature yet friendly personality and my enthusiasm to help portray a company vision in a positive way.
In my free time, I am an avid reader, I ski and play basketball to keep fit, I am almost fluent in Spanish and I enjoy cooking for family and friends. Coming from a large family, I find that I work very well in a team environment and actively participate and contribute to a common goal. Recently, I had the great pleasure of being voted a part of the committee for the Melbourne University Ski Club due to my enthusiasm, positive attitude and social skills. I find that being a representative of the committee, I am able to build an approachable and friendly relationship with others which I believe is an important attitude to develop for any career.
