Strong Writing Skills

As an English Literature major, I have been expected to pay attention to detail, read critically, write constructively, and think outside the box. This has made me consider small details just as important as big.


At The Cup Edwardsville I had a variety of different obligations to attend to that were on deadline including inventory management, order fulfillment, and Holiday Decor Tier set up.  At the same time, I was also obligated to fulfill decorator requirements and Team Lead requirements.

Strong Verbal and Nonverbal Communication

Part of my job as Team Lead at The Cup Edwardsville was instructing others on how to do a variety of skills that their job required. I also managed customer disputes, which taught me how to stay collected under outside pressure.  Being in charge of store inventory, I exercised my verbal communication while working with vendors while ordering various different products.

Fluency in Mac Operations

I have had the experience helping students navigate basic Mac operations, including browser use and printer difficulties.


At The Cup Edwardsville I was in charge of leading a small group of individuals, overseeing the everyday tasks of the team members, and handle in company disputes with the team members as well as any disputes of customers.
