He has seen my troubleshooting and administrative specialist skills at work with regard to the photocopier, the fax machine and various computers in the department.   I assisted Mr. Herb Scott by building specific and specialized excel spreadsheets to track personnel productivity, workflow accounting and Annual Appropriation Bills to Acts.  I am confident that each will be honest and forthright with regard to my strengths and weaknesses as both an individual and as an employee in their experience.
