Overview

  • I am a self-motivated employee. I enjoy my profession because of the constant changes and challenges it supplies on a day-to-day basis. I have a deep seeded competitiveness that forces me to always strive to be the best at everything I set my mind to. I have an uncanny ability to learn anything in a short period of time, allowing me to be a step above my peers.

Objective

  • My personal objectives, ambitions and goals are constantly changing. I prefer the short term goal approach, as compared to long term. I find that meeting your short term goals will always lead to achieving the long term goal, even if what that goal is, changes along the way. Adaptability is an important trait that I learned in my time serving in the U.S. Army. As such, I am prepared to make your company's objectives, a part of my own. expect nothing less than what my maximum effort can produce, and as such, would suggest the same expectations for myself, from you. In my opinion, this is what makes me perfect for this position, within your company.
