Package Handler

United Parcel Service

I loaded trucks with packages, sorted packages, and unloaded semi's. It was a very fast paced work place with very fast delivery belts. The advisers reminded me somewhat of a "boot-camp" sergeant.  After taking this job I knew I was able to deal with very stressful situations.

Work Ethic

I have had many physically challenging jobs which have given me good work ethic and the ability to get things done under any conditions.

Leadership/Management Skills

I am very well with working with others, but if it comes down to it I can push people to work harder and more efficiently. I give excellent directions and can follow directions well also.

Interpersonal Abilities

Analytical/Research Skills

Communication Skills


1)Family and Friends

2)Helping Others

3)Learning Something New





My objectives are to graduate from Fort Hays State University with a Bachelor in the College of Business with an emphasis in Marketing. I would like to someday own my own Concert Venue or work as a marketer somewhere in the music business. I think that music is a good way for people to escape or to leave all their troubles behind for awhile. I think that marketing different genres of music and trying to get the youth population to learn an instrument would greatly benefit society as a whole. People would have more to do than play video games or party.

Just from past traveling experiences I think that I would like to someday live in Colorado or California. Wherever I decide to live or take a job I would like to settle down and have a few children.
