I can say with complete confidence that I can sell anything.

I am an ambitious graduate from Queensland University of Technology who majored in international business who also possesses a proven ability in sales and communication. I have worked in many different fields and am now looking for an opportunity to begin my career with a multinational company in their sales, marketing, importing and exporting, or logistics departments.
As a sales representative my experiences included:
During the time I worked at 99 Bikes I had been short listed for a leadership position due to competence in sales and leadership potential. Though 99 bikes had put me in their sights as a future leader, I fundamentally disagreed with their culture of maximising sales and the customers expense and decided to leave so I could find another way to start my career in international business.
As a house painter I experienced:
Roy the Painter is my father, and working with him was both my first job and the job that has most significantly developed my career. My father would often commit to too many jobs at the one time and I would be required to put together a team or work independently to complete extra jobs within a strict deadline.
I helped my father in all aspects of his business from lodging tax forms to sourcing new clientele. This has had a positive influence on my father’s business, especially since I have been able to apply what I have learned during business degree at QUT directly to an operating business.
As an English teacher positions I gained experience with;
During my time at Ready English I worked closely with the owner of the school to devise more efficient ways for the school to use to steady stream of transient English teachers floating around Asia. Though I helped structure the way classes were structured and grew to personally know many of the students, I had to leave ready English when my Visa had expired.
I received several awards while working at TSA for exceeding my targets and out-performing my colleges (available upon request). The biggest change this experience made to me professionally has been to highly polish my communication and sales ability and bolster my professional confidence.
Working in a laboratory I experienced:
Working for ALS was a unique experience, as ALS places much emphasis on organisational culture, entering ASL was my first experience working for a large international company. I was hired as part of a team which was to use new equipment and it was left to us and our manager to streamline its operation. The techniques we developed were so successful they were implemented across other ALS’s other national locations.
