Skills

Skills

Social Media

I use social media on everyday, in both my personal and work life. I see social media as one of the most important forms of media these days because of its use in both personal and work affairs. The availability and transmission of information via social media is truly phenomenal.

Communication

I love to discuss, present, and listen. I enjoy building upon ideas offered from others, offering my own and working as a team to put these ideas into practice.

MS Office

You cannot graduate from a business program without developing a number of skills with various office programs. However, I believe I have developed some specialized skills in using a variety of office programs in combination to make life much easier.
