Personal Statement

I pride myself to be trustworthy, honest, loyal and kind.  My strength is to perform to the best of my ability and I always strive for 110% effort whenever I perform a task.  I have a passion for acquiring new skills and learning new systems; I am a fast learner.  I consider myself to have a good sense of humour and I work well in a team environment, as well as on my own.  I am a highly motivated and organised person, who is able to retain a calm demeanour under pressure.  I enthusiastically respond to new challenges and I use initiative when called upon.

Skills

Customer Service
  • I pride myself for having excellent customer service.  I have been serving customers for 5 years.  
  • At Countdown I would provide customer service by answering questions and helping customers whether it was in the store or online. 
  • When I worked at a cafe at SilverStar mountain resort, I would always give my best service to every customer that walked in. This is because I knew that it would make their experience up at the resort more enjoyable and it always made me happier knowing that my service had a positive impact on them.  
Team Work
  • I have experience working in a team through my time whether as a worker or as a student.
  • At Hillcrest Cafe and Bakery, in the morning it would get quite busy due to customers coming in for breakfast, therefore it required great communication with the team to make it through the rush.
  • At Girl Guides, to have a well run program requires for all the leaders to work well together. This meant keeping in contact with each other, building close relationship and understanding the other leaders behaviour. 

Communication
  • I have found that working in hospitality at Hillcrest Bakery and Silverstar that being able to communicate with you team is important. Especially during rush hour where I am flooded with customers. I have to communicate well with my team to make sure everything goes smoothly. 
  • I developed strong communication skills through my time at University , Girl Guides and Enactus.  Working in groups I have learnt that  communication is a key factor in a team's success by making sure messages are properly communicated among each person.

Problem Solving
  • At university I have taken papers which allows me to take a logical and analytical approach to solving problems given and dealing with issues given.  It allows me to approach a problem from a different angle. 
  • At countdown I would normally work late afternoon shift, this meant that my manager was not there to supervise me, so I had to be quick on my feet and think of solutions when problem arise, which was mostly from customers.
