Jeannette Hendrina (Jeandre) Cloete

Summary

I have +-11 years of experience in the I.T. industry, all of which included COBOL development together with various platforms and other related technologies.

I'm a hard worker and always strive for success and to exceed expectations. I'm a quick learner and acquire new skills quickly. To achieve this I ask for assistance when necessary and do additional research and reading on the matter, even if I'm required to do it in my own time.

I enjoy doing documentation and creating manuals for training and/or knowledge transfer. I believe that the more people who posses knowledge the better the team's delivery can be to the client/users.

In my opinion, being a developer doesn't raise revenue for the company, there for the main aim for a developer should be to deliver outstanding service and support to the system users to enable them to perform their duties as quickly and efficiently as possible.

For the past 4 years I have been self-employed. I had my own engineering company that manufactured milling machines for the Tube and Pipe industry as well as for the Rainwater Goods industry. We also serviced the Earthmoving Equipment industry by manufacturing new replacement parts and doing repair work on broken parts.

When I started this venture I knew nothing about the industry or how to operate any of the machines. Today, 4 years later, I do my own drawings on a CAD program, I can do on-board programming for the CNC lathe, therefore I don't required the drawing to done on the CAD program which then generates the program for the CNC. This enables me to pick up mistakes easier in the cutting cycle. And today, I can operate all of the machines in the workshop.

I have learned a lot about myself and some important life lessons in the past 4 years, which I feel will allow me to better contribute to the workplace environment. I have decided to return to the workplace environment due to changes in my personal circumstances as well as a volatile economic climate currently experienced in the Engineering industry.
