Responses: 542


I'm the One

I am a smart employee and quick learner and I am a results-oriented and have an excellent rapport with people. Moreover I always give my best effort to my work. I am always searching for a place where I can realize my full potential. I have a passion to deal effectively in the field of my expertise.

Solution Oriented Problem Solver

You need to hire me because you don't want to spend weeks training me. You want a quick learner with good communication skills and technical problem solving skills. You need someone who can pick up the pieces that were dropped, and can start connecting the dots, and then applying themselves in a strategic and organized fashion that makes sense to your management style. I can make adorable color coded file systems or breeze through the heaping to-do list in a flurry, whatever suits your style. Mainly, I pride myself in customer / client satisfaction with my personable approach. Alternately, I enjoy autonomously jumping into the action and getting down to business once I get my bearings. As well I'm eager to be part of a team that inspires and engages me to do my best work!

Most people will answer self-praising reasons why they should be hired. I, on the other hand cannot lie. I have a proven track record and you can verify it with my previous employers.

Paraphrase JFK

Because everyday as I prepare to go to work I ask myself “What can I do for the company today?” not “What can the company do for me?” My past employers have described me as trustworthy, honest and reliable. Now isn’t that the kind of person you’d want working for you?
—Guest Miss Sherry


You should hire me because I have the potential to learn at every step and no matter how difficult the challenge is, I never give up. As said "where there is a will there is a way".... and where there is no way, create one.
