Skills

Skills

Customer Service

In order to be successful in anything in life you should always put your customer's happiness as your first priority. Anyone that has something invested in your organization wants to know that you're working your hardest to benefit them in some way. I have worked in retail dealing with consumers since I was fourteen years old, and I'm quite good at it if I say so myself ;)

Effective Money Handling Skills

I have worked as a cashier, in several retail locations, so I am no stranger to handling money. I have also served as the treasurer of my sorority, since being initiated in 2008.

Organizational Skills

I have served as Secretary of the Black Student Association and the National Pan Hellenic Council, so I can effectively take minutes and keep order during meetings. My involvement with my sorority has also put me in many event planning roles, that have helped to develop my organizational skills.

Oral and Written Skills

I have held many positions on many different executive boards in my life. Therefore, I have learned  to interact and communicate with many people effectively and professionally express myself. Also, my major in Communication Studies has required me to participate in many speaking and writing intensive courses.
