Time spent with Tween Brands:
I received several promotions and accolades throughout my years with Justice. I was taken on as a part-time stock person, promoted to a sales person, to a part-time assistant manager, to a full-time assistant manager, and eventually moved up to senior store manager, which I have been for the past two years. I was recognized by both my district manager and regional manager for helping to build the stores business over 17% in my first year as senior manager, and another 9% in my second year, equating to an additional $400,000 in business. I enjoyed my job, the people I hired, and the customers that would come in.
Other skills include:
• Published author, having written over 15 short stories that have appeared in magazines and anthologies, and have published 1 novel.
• Genuinely friendly person. I do not ‘fake it’ when dealing with people. I have always believed you get what you give, so I approach each person I meet with the respect and congeniality I would want to be met with.
• I enjoy new tests, tasks, and responsibilities. I am always willing to try new things and embrace new experiences. I am very flexible with my availability and can adopt and cope to changes very quickly.
• Fast learner, a creative person, and a problem solver. I feel there is no challenge I can’t conquer with hard work and time. I welcome new challenges. Bring it on!
