Resident Assistant

Longwood University

I am currently a Resident Assistant for a Freshman hall. As a Resident assistant, my job is to look after the safety and well being of my hall. It has taught me how to be responsible over a large amount of people. It has also trained me to be ready for emergencies anytime of the day.  Lastly, It has honed my skills of reading people to get a gauge of how they are doing emotionally.

Skills

Skills

Writing Skill

I pride myself on being a good writer. I am a good writer several ways: first, it doesn't take me long to write a draft for a assignment or publication. Also, I have had a lot of success making my work interesting to the readers. 

Quick Learner

I learn things within the workplace very quickly and I pick up on the mechanics of a job quickly and effectively. This makes it so I do not use valuable time learning how to do my job.

Managing

While I held my position in the Washington Redskins store, the employees looked to me as an unofficial manager of the store. So while I was not given the official privileges of a manager, I held a leadership position in the minds of my peers.

Interpersonal skills

I have good interpersonal skills with both customers and my co-workers, making transitioning to a new staff easier while also easing the minds of new customers
