What do you want your potential employer to know about you?

I am seeking a full-time career mid-level position, I have a combined 20 years experience in the business world encompassing diverse skills within an administrative, sales, marketing,customer service and employee relations environment. In the past two and half years, I have been downsized three times due to economic conditions and it pains me to show such irregular work history on my resume as I have always had longevity in my positions. I have never been terminated from a position. I hope to find my last job during my search as my goals are to become part of a company that is stable, can offer growth, and career stability for a long term relationship. The "title" I seek does not matter to me so much as being given the opportunity to be productive, learn, grow and be a part of a team. I pride myself on being a quick learner, flexible, hardworking, a team player, and dependable.


Dedicated business professional seeking a position within an administrative role utilizing 20 years of administrative, sales, marketing, recruiting/staffing and customer service experience.
