Letter of Recommendation excerpt:

"Always upbeat and enthusiastic, Camille was a pleasure to work with. Full of energy, she was ready to tackle any assignment with interest, dedication and skill. Friendly, outgoing, hardworking and reliable, she was a warmly-welcomed addition to our professional environment. The entire department appreciated her positive attitude and demeanor, and despite remaining only two and half months with us, everyone was sad to see Camille leave. I have no doubt that Camille has a bright future ahead of her, and I know she would be a tremendous addition to your company. She has earned my highest recommendation."

Diane Wieland

Camille always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and ambition. She is definitely a leader who took charge of all aspects of a job as a full-time

employee of a busy tourism office marketing a premiere beach vacation destination. 

Camille's abilities and her nature as a self starter helped in all facets of the office

operations. Whether she wrote a feature story for our destination guide, answered the English or French-speaking questions of a potential visitor who contacted the

office or conducted visitor intercept surveys in targeted locations in the county as

part of a research task, Camille could get the job done well.

She is a dependable team player. Her good judgment and optimistic outlook ensure

a logical and practical approach to her endeavors as evidenced by the success of the projects that she managed.

Camille would be an asset to any organization, and I am happy to give her my wholehearted endorsement.
