Promotions

Freelance

I have intermittently worked as an in store promoter. I am not, however, affiliated with an agency.  Working as a promoter, I developed excellent communication skills. I can listen carefully and ask questions if necessary. I always maintain a pleasant and professional manner when talking with clients. I know I will be able to transfer these skills into a new role.

Volunteer/Observer/Counsellor

St. Rafael's School for Special Needs

As a Psychology student I intended to visit St Rafael's to observe Autism in children during my vacation. However, being short of staff, the school asked if I would return to assist with counselling  and behavioral management.  Working with children, I developed patience and compassion. In addition I gained valuable counselling experience.
