I am a creative and motivated individual who thrives to create a pleasant atmosphere for myself and those around me. I earned my degree in Journalism from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, through hours of writing and dedication to my interest in the power of language. My time in college prepared me for a career in writing, editing, proofreading and the fundamentals of Journalism. My internship at The Daily Press gave me insight into news reporting, photography and the importance of deadlines. My work experience has honed my skills in customer service, shipping and handling, human interaction, accuracy through advertising and sales techniques. Through these three crucial stages in my life, I have learned a great deal about the person I am and the drive that I have to absorb any information that may be pertinent to my success as an employee and as a person.

Work History

Dec 2013Present

 Listing Coordinator/Internet Sales

Elk County Ammo & Arms

05/2016-Present-- My role at this company had shifted from the payment/shipping end to the publishing end of this company's sales spectrum. My main duty was the management of multiple websites on which our products and advertising are listed (Ebay, Amazon, Facebook, Wordpress, Etc.). During listing, item prices must be checked thoroughly to maintain a standard with other companies, while deciphering what products can achieve a higher profit. At the same time, realizing what products haven't been selling and adjusting accordingly. Listed items must also include the correct information and photos to assure customer satisfaction and positive feedback. Answering customer questions about products and resolving any issues is still a priority in this position. Attention to detail and in depth research was paramount.

12/2013-05/2016--The main focus of this occupation was customer service. Taking orders for products in a quick, comfortable and satisfying manner; along with proper E-mail and phone etiquette for responses to customers. After receipt of payment, duties transfer to the delivery of said merchandise. Following shipping, labeling and packaging protocol for shipments is vital during this process. The handling of these shipments must be precise and approved by an authorized recipient. I also have experience with Hazmat packages and expedited or rerouted shipments. Other minor tasks include receiving shipments, attending to UPS/USPS issues, issuing and completing returns or interceptions and tending to customers in retail sales store.
