Attributes that best describes:
I am a Masters of Arts, English Literature and Language graduate with 20 years of experience in office management and administration, including accounts payable, accounts receivable, customer service, committee coordination, event planning and logistics, project management, team leadership, database management and reception. I am extremely knowledgeable in most facets of Microsoft Office, including Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and have an intermediate knowledge of Access.
To my experience, I add a passion for writing and editing, which I have employed in every position that I have held over the past 13 years. I have written or co-written, copy edited and proofread reports, proposals, policy documents, newsletters and business communications. I have also taught writing to first year university students as well as to employees of the Federal Government. I thoroughly enjoy the process of researching, planning and writing a piece, and hope that I can incorporate this love in to future.
Additionally, I have discovered through my volunteer positions - President of our local Nursery School's Parent Council and Co-chairmanship on our local Public School's Parent Council - over the past 8 years that I have an ability to maintain diplomacy in stressful, emotional and passionate situations. I am able to hold a sober center line in divisive issues so that I may assist opposing parties in discussing constructively their personal views. This is a skill that I am rather proud of and a skill I would like to put to further use.
Finally, I am an able and confident communicator - both in one-on-one situations and in group settings - and I possess the soft skills that will ensure that I succeed in any position: I am organized and efficient, tenacious and results oriented, friendly where required but firm when necessary, capable of self-directed pursuits and effective in a team situation.
