Admin. Services Coordinator
Because of the success of my previous position within Kimball Midwest, I was offered a promotion to Coordinator in order to create and implement process improvements - in addition to many other new responsibilities.
Nov 2007 - Sep 2010
During the course of my employment at Kimball, I have changed certain processes to be more efficient and productive. I focus on the details and help to catch small errors before they become a problem while trying to find the best and quickest way to complete a task. Editing professional documents and creating form letters are two examples of how I was able to bring my English degree into use in the workplace. Other administrative tasks - such as filing (physical and electronic), answering phones, providing customer service, and entering orders - were routine assignments and special projects were often assigned as well.
Jun 2009 - Dec 2009
My internship was independent and not through a company. I did projects for Kimball Midwest, my current employer, as well as projects as an independent contractor through individuals I found by networking. The projects ranged from simple editing jobs to more complex, almost ghost-writing, gigs. I also created documents such as flyers and forms for one of my projects.
