Summary

Although I've had only one job (outside of volunteering), I have mastered a lot of the necessary skills that are used in different job settings. I'm a fairly fast learner as long as I'm given the necessary tools and resources. I like to complete task before deadlines, and I love to have conversations with people of different backgrounds and cultures.

Basic Office/Computer Skills

I have a basic understanding on how to use Macintosh and PC computers. Entering data, typing documents, and find documents on the hard drive are just a few of the basic skills I know how to do on both types of computers. My job duties at Adidas sometimes included answering multi-line phones, as well as using excel for charts. 

Spanish

I'm still learning some Spanish, and I'm much better at writing than "speaking". With the spanish speaking population in the United States growing everyday, this is an important skill to have/maintain for communication, and customer satisfaction. 

Customer Service

Customer Service is a skill that is needed with any type of job. Since I've had only one job since I was 17, that majors in Customer Service, I have long background with customer satisfaction.
